Different Kinds of Storm Damage and How We Address Them
Storm damage is actually a catch-all term; there are many ways a storm can damage your roof, and it’s important to understand the different types of damage. Read on to learn more and about our corresponding methods of repair.
Thunderstorms are probably the most common kind of adverse weather you’ll experience. The wind and water combo is particularly dangerous on older roofs since the wind strips off the protective covering of the roof. The rain then penetrates the damaged roof, causing extensive water damage.
When we deliver storm damage repair services for homes that have experienced thunderstorm damage, we focus on bolstering the roof’s water resistance by prioritizing repair for the underlayment. Then we replace broken or worn out shingles so that your roof is completely protected from the elements.
Hailstorms are one of the more dangerous types of adverse weather, and the damage hail does to your roof can vary from noticeable to well-hidden. Your roof takes the brunt of the damage when the ice hits, and you’ll likely see dents or cracked shingles after a hailstorm.
Our hail damage repair services focus on replacing the exterior covering of the roof—the shingles. We replace all the shingles with new ones as even the smallest cracks can rupture and expose your home to water damage.
Northern Virginia can be susceptible to tornados, and the extremely strong winds can cause significant damage to your roof. Even if the tornado is far from your home, the accompanying winds are carrying debris that can damage your roof. In cases like this, the damage to your roof may be too extensive for repair, in which case we can install a new roof.
The roofing systems we install are built to resist powerful winds and engineered to withstand significant damage from all kinds of storms. Get in touch with us if you want to strengthen your roofing system. Contact us at (703) 822-7222 for a free estimate.
