Why You Must Have a Roof Inspection After a Storm

by | Jul 3, 2019 | Roof Tips | 0 comments

Severe weather is the bane of roofs everywhere, but especially here at the tail end of Tornado Alley. North Texas is known for its intense storms, hail, tornadoes, and high winds. The peak of our storm season occurs between March and May, but your roof could suffer weather damage any time throughout the year. To make sure your roof didn’t suffer severe but hidden damage, we recommend calling Elite Roofing and Restoration Services for a professional roof inspection after heavy storms roll through.

Storm Damage

Storm damage is the single biggest threat your roof faces. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roofs in the US, and they are especially vulnerable to the hazards of heavy wind and rain. Shingles can become dislodged and fly away, get damaged by flying debris, and warp or buckle due to water damage. This creates openings where water can seep into the underlayment and down into your home.

Other roof types are also prone to certain kinds of storm damage. Flat roofs can have areas where water pools, and the roofing membranes that protect them can become damaged and separate from the roof. This allows water to penetrate beneath the membrane.

Why You Need a Professional Assessment

Some homeowners are content to climb a ladder, glance at their roofs and call it a day if they don’t immediately see damage after a storm. This is risky on many levels. Your best bet is to call Elite Roofing and Restoration Services. We can help with all the following considerations.

  • Personal Safety. After a storm, your roof could be weakened or have soft spots that would be hazardous to step on. That’s in addition to the risk of climbing onto your roof yourself, especially if it’s still damp.
