Storm damage isn’t always as obvious as torn-off shingles. This is why roofing companies like us always recommend conducting a roof inspection after a storm, regardless of the roof’s condition. In this blog, Billings Construction Group shares with you what happens when storm damage isn’t addressed in a timely manner.
The Effects of Storm Damage
In addition to apparent roofing damage such as torn-off roofing and impact from airborne debris, there are other kinds of damage that are not as noticeable. For instance, stress marks on the shingles, wind-driven rain at the roof edges, and gutters knocked out of alignment may not be as immediately problematic. If left unaddressed, these can lead to problems such as improper gutter drainage and ice dams.
Water intrusion, if left unaddressed, can lead to long-term roofing problems. Moisture in the attic can damage the roof deck and insulation, and raise the moisture levels within. In addition to potentially costly structural repairs, increased moisture levels in your home can encourage mold and mildew growth. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to prevent these problems from happening.
