Storms can do extensive damage to your home. They can damage your property in many ways, but most of the damage will be to the roof. While you cannot control the weather, there is a lot you can do to protect your roof and home. When it comes to storm damage, basic upkeep goes a long way.
Here are some simple ways you can protect your roof from storm damage.
Preventive Repairs and Maintenance: Roofs are more vulnerable to intense weather. Therefore, it is always a good idea to do preventive repairs and maintenance in order to identify any leaks or damage. If a shingle is damaged or missing, make sure to repair it as soon as possible.
Keeping the Roof Clean: Roof debris can do considerable damage, especially during a storm. It can scratch away the protective roofing granules of asphalt shingles and can physically puncture the surface of the roof. Keeping the roof clean reduces the risk of tears, penetrations and holes forming during a storm. In addition, make sure your gutters are free-flowing and your downspouts flow away from your foundation.
Professional Inspection: Most roofing problems are difficult to locate. Therefore, it is in your best interest to get the help of a professional to inspect your roof.
