3 Common Types of Roof Storm Damage

Different kinds of storm damage pose their own problems. Make sure you understand how the aftermath of common storms could affect your roof.

1. Water Damage

Moisture damage is the most common culprit and the easiest to spot. After heavy rainfall, it’s possible that your entire home could be affected by water damage. To avoid mold, structural problems, and rotting, schedule a roof inspection with SERVPRO of Kendall County right away. Even a small leak can cause expensive problems down the road!

2. Hail Damage

After a hail storm, you may notice dings in your metal roof, dark spots on your shingle roof, or even cracks in your siding. However, roof hail damage can be difficult to identify and even go undetected until more damage is done. Instead of waiting until it’s too late, it’s best to have a professional like SERVPRO of Kendall County come to take a look.

3. Wind Damage

Heavy winds are not only frightening, but they can also ruin shingle roofs, especially in the event of a tornado. Strong winds are powerful enough to lift your shingles and even permanently misplace them, leaving empty space for water to travel into and causing leaks. Wind can also send flying debris to your roof, resulting in cracks, holes, and other problems.
