Heavy Winds Are Impactful To The Roof

With storms come heavy winds. These high winds can cause severe damage to your roof, taking off shingles, underlayment, and adhesive materials. They can also make an impact on your gutters, pulling them away from the home. If you notice missing shingles or other roof damage after a storm, these can lead to leaks and possible damage to the inside of your home. It is always best to contact a professional to inspect your roof for any sort of wind damage.

Hail Likes To Cause Dents To Shingles

During a hail storm, the impact of hail in any sort of size can create indentations on your shingles, which can eventually cause them to crack. Cracked shingles can end up in water leaks on the interior of your home. Hail can also cause downspout and gutter damage, making your roof drainage system work a lot harder and less effective.

Crazy Summer Storms Bring Large Amounts of Debris

Summer storms are very unpredictable. Some are mild, some are intense, and some bring large amounts of debris onto your home. This can include branches, trees, powerlines, and other sorts of debris landing right onto your gutters and roof.
