Reasons You Need Emergency Roof Repairs
The most common home insurance claims every year are from wind damage. For that reason, you cannot neglect your roof when a wind storm does occur. There are a few common types of roof damage that you should always be on the lookout for—especially after a severe wind storm. Look out for the following types of damage:
Blown-Off Shingles: Asphalt shingles are susceptible to strong winds through a process known as wind uplift. This occurs when the pressure below the roof is greater than the air pressure above it. When the wind is blown across the building, the pressure above the roof will decrease. Simultaneously, air pressure below the roof increases because of wind entering through cracks and openings. As a result, there is a net upward force on the roof. This is what may cause your shingles to rip off during a wind storm.
Broken Shingles/Tiles: Wind is also able to damage your shingles by cracking or snapping them. You may not experience blown-off shingles, but the shingles could be damaged from how strong the wind blew them upward. They may look fine from the ground, but it is better for you to have a professional inspection. Tiles made of clay or terracotta can crack when they are hit with a large impact. For example, a tree branch falls onto your home. The branch can crack the shingles to the point where they allow moisture to enter your home. This is an issue that needs emergency roof repairs.
Roof Leaks: Finally, the most common type of roof repair is a roof leak. Most if not all homeowners experience a roof leak once in their lifetime. A roof leak is a sign that your shingles or tiles are damaged. Part of your roof could be exposed, or the materials may be too old to provide protection against the elements. Other reasons may be due to exposed or damaged flashing. Flashing helps keep the seems of your roof safe. When they fail, water can easily find its way into your home.
