When Should I Have My Roof Repaired?

Having a roof that is in good working condition is necessary to protect your home and property from wind, rain, hail, extreme heat and more.

If your roof is damaged, even partially, it can leave everything inside your home in danger. If you’ve noticed that your home’s roof has been damaged after a wind, hail or rainstorm, it is important to call upon a professional roofer to have things repaired as soon as possible.

Timely repairs are the key to your roof lasting for many years to come and will even save you money in the long run by avoiding those costly replacements.

When it’s been damaged by wind

One of the most obvious ways to tell if your roof has been damaged and is in need of repairs is by seeing shingles or other roofing materials in your yard after a big storm.

If a windstorm has rolled through your street and there is visible damage from the ground it is essential to have the roof repaired as soon as possible.

Strong winds also create stress points on a roof that can weaken over time and become compromised. Roofs are designed to resist the typical wind, but no roof is likely to withstand the most extreme wind.

If it’s be hammered by hail

Another big problem for roofs is heavy hail. When the hail hits, it can cause a large amount of damage to your roof that can alter roofing materials, put dents in your roof and more.

Depending on the length of the hailstorm, the speed at which it falls, and the size of the hail, your home’s roof can experience a wide range of damage that will need to be professionally inspected.

If you have an asphalt shingle roof, you might see granule loss. A good way to inspect for granule loss is to look at the downspouts of your gutters to see if there are granules. If you do not have gutters you will find granule loss evidence in places that water will run off your house during a storm.

You see signs of leaking

Another time when it is necessary to have your roof repaired is when you notice leaks inside your home.

If there is a rainstorm and water is dripping through your roof and into your home, it is most certainly time to have it looked at and repaired by a professional team.

While you may be tempted to just put a bucket under the leak and forget about it until the next time it rains, the damage can only get worse with time and may eventually lead to the need for a complete roof replacement if it is not fixed in a timely manner.
