How Does Storm Damage Affect My Home Over Time?

Think your house is resistant to exposure to water? Water damage from flooding or intense storms is one of the most frequent and expensive threats in the U.S. when it comes to roofing

Almost ninety percent of the damage associated with all-natural disasters were attributed to flood-related water damage. Homes, companies, cars, possessions, machinery… everything gets affected. Even only a few inches of water could cause significant harm to the contents of your home.

Your house is always in the course of disaster as Mother Nature attacks. Storm damage, although minor, where repairs are not carried out promptly, may cause cost long-term issues.

Extreme winds, heavy rain, floods, and even lightning will all cause property damage. There are several ways a storm or hurricane will destroy the home, from water running down roof beams onto the walls.

The quicker you evaluate the injury, the better you will evaluate the need for maintenance and also begin the insurance claim process.

Your roof is really exposed, making it a target for a bad storm. The best way to actually know whether you believe harm has been done is to check it out.

Damages Your Roof Might Get From The Storm

Roofing Debris May Come Off

Some loose debris that you find around your house, such as yard waste, outdoor furniture, and so on, may mean that during high winds when a storm comes, something hits your roof. As soon as you can, clear debris away to mitigate damage and check for signature broken shingle patterns to determine impacts.

Your Gutter Might Get Clogged

Clogged gutters can be swept out as soon as practicable following a storm. Water flows straight down onto the foot of the house from a collapsed gutter. This will erode the base in time and render the structure unsafe. Check for bending and dislocation in both gutters and downspouts.

Moisture and Leaks

Your roof and attic make up a whole community that exists tightly together. For any signs of the moisture infiltration that may expose leakage, search your attic. To avoid the production of harmful mold or mildew, inundated surfaces and insulation can need to be replaced.

Conclusion

During a hurricane, one of the first things any homeowner can do is inspect for roof loss. Roof loss is also a risk, even though you have no clear water inside your house.

Although climbing up on the roof might be enticing, we advise homeowners to avoid this wherever possible. If you can, always try to measure roof damage from ground level. Prior to making the decision to use a staircase, consider using a pair of binoculars to see more plainly.

Rain, on its own, is typically not necessary to destroy a structurally sound roof. However, add wind, airborne rocks, and hail to the mix, and roofs will take a major beating.

To get a top to bottom assessment of how your roof is going, call on your trusty roofing contractors at Quality Discount Roofing and Construction so you’d be worry-free throughout the stormy season.

Job Description

Are you hungry for success? Are you driven? Do you want to change your life and work for a fun, innovative, and fast-growing team? If you answered yes to any of these questions, keep reading!

Unlike roofing contractors that expect you to knock on doors, we will train you with our very sophisticated and next-level sales university that has turned those with no sales experience to start with record sales numbers! We will provide you scheduled appointments that we need you to follow our process and close the deals! Learn more about us at www.qdrusa.com.
