Wind Damaged Roof
In most cases, it’s pretty easy to tell if you need an emergency roof repair due to high winds. Roofing materials are easily torn off when wind speeds are high or strike at just the right angle. While some heavier materials, like tile roofs, are less likely to be blown off, they all have the potential. When you have missing materials after a storm, it’s important to call right away for roof repair or replacement. Without a roof inspection, it will be impossible to know if damage was done to the underlayment or wood deck when the fastener was torn out. And the longer the materials underneath are exposed, the higher potential you have for disaster.
High winds also turn branches, limbs, and other objects into projectiles that can slam against or puncture your roof. Storm damage repair can secure the leak long enough to evaluate the damage, provide you with options, and allow you to make a careful decision.
Less common, dust can be blown onto the adhesive strips of composite shingle roofs that prevents it from staying in place or being re-adhered when a shingle is blown off. In this case, storm damage roof repair can either replace the adhesive strip or the shingle.
Hail Damaged Roof
No matter the size of the stones, hail can create significant problems for rooftops. The velocity and angle at which they strike can make even small hailstones destructive. Tile roofs are common in our area, and although they are tough, they are not immune to breakage. Storm damage repair may be needed if your tiles are cracked due to hail because the cracks may be allowing water to seep through a damaged underlayment into your wood deck. Tiles can also be knocked loose, and flashing can be dented. While many of these issues may not seem like they would require an emergency roof repair, it’s important to know that leaks can drip into your attic space for months without being noticed.
Cedar shake roofs, like tile, also experience breakage from hail. Our storm damage repair team can replace broken shakes quickly to restore the security of your roof. Shakes that are hand-split have variance in appearance, so finding a perfect match isn’t necessary. But machine-split shakes are uniform. We find the best match available. If it isn’t perfect, we take good shakes from less visible areas of your roof and replace the broken shakes with them. The near matches are then used in those less seen areas.
Asphalt shingle roofs are perhaps the most vulnerable to hail damage. A pounding hail storm can beat away the protective mineral granules that coat your shingles and protect them from the sun’s UV rays. After a storm, your rooftop may be littered with tiny bald spots. Without protection, the sun will weaken them and cause them to become brittle. With storm damage roof repair, we can replace the damaged shingles before they have the opportunity to deteriorate and leak.
