Common Types of Storms That Damage Your Roof

There are several types of storms that can occur, each with its own characteristics and potential for damage. Here are some common types of storms:

Hail Damage: If the hail damage penetrates the roof's protective layers, it can create openings that allow water to enter the structure.

Wind Storm: Wind storms can lift and remove shingles from the roof, leaving bare spots or exposing the underlying layers. It also causes damage to the roof's edges, including the fascia and soffit.

Hurricanes: Hurricanes bring strong winds, heavy rainfall, and flying debris, all of which can cause significant damage to roofs.

Heavy Rainfall: Persistent heavy rainfall can lead to water pooling on the roof, which can seep through cracks, gaps, or damaged areas.

Tornado: Tornadoes can completely lift off or destroy roofs, leaving homes or buildings exposed to the elements. This can result in extensive structural damage and require a complete roof replacement.

Falling Debris: Falling debris, especially large and heavy objects, can impact the roof's surface and cause damage to shingles or tiles. This can result in cracks, fractures, or dislodgment of individual roofing materials.

Snow: Snow on the roof can melt and refreeze, forming ice dams along the eaves. Water backs up and seeps under the shingles or tiles due to ice dams. Water infiltration, leaks, and structural damage can result.
