With the amount of hurricanes and other storms hitting the Panhandle this year, we figured now was a better time than ever to discuss the impact weather can have on the roof of your home or business. During storms, protecting windows and doors is a common practice, however, many people leave their roof to weather the elements. During a storm, there isn’t much people can do to protect the roof of their home, however, it is important to understand how the weather can impact your roof and what you should do in the event your home or business has been affected. Have any questions? Think you may need roofing services in Valparaiso, Florida or the surrounding areas? Reach out to Timberman Roofing today, we’d be happy to assist with any of your roofing needs.
How Wind Affects Your Roof
When it comes to wind, it can wreak havoc on your roof, even when speeds haven’t reached hurricane or tornado levels. When a roof is exposed to strong winds, it can actually lead to shingles lifting/being removed, tiles being loosened and even your gutter system becoming damaged. When wind speeds are high enough, roof frame damage has even been experienced.
Following extreme winds, we recommend a roofing inspection to determine if any services may need to be performed.
How Extreme Temperatures Affect Your Roof
Living in the Florida Panhandle, extreme heat can be a common problem. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat can result in the roof of your home or business becoming compromised both internally and externally.
If you notice shingle deterioration, discoloration of your roof or higher than usual utility bills, we recommend a professional roofing inspection.
How Rain Affects Your Roof
Although roofs are installed on our homes and businesses to protect from the elements, this doesn’t mean they are waterproof. Regardless of where you live, rain is a common occurrence around the world. While rainfall isn’t an inherent problem, a poorly maintained roof in combination with rain can spell disaster.
If you notice any shingle wear-and-tear or damage, we recommend an inspection to determine if any repairs or replacements are needed. Neglecting to address roof issues could result in water damage due to rain.
