Your roof is designed to weather storms and protect your home. In West Texas, storms can be sudden and harsh. Storm damage is not always easy to spot. After a storm, Accent Roofing of Amarillo can help assess damage and get you on the road to repairing your roof.
As a homeowner, protecting the structure of your roofing system should be a top priority. Your roof is essential for protecting your home and should be at the top of your repair agenda. If your roof is showing any signs of damage or reduced function, contact Accent Roofing for help locating damage and making repairs. When it comes to roofing, the sooner storm damage is located and repaired, the less costly and time consuming the repairs will be.
When considering storm damage and making repairs, it is important not to neglect any damage. Even a small amount of damage can become a big problem if left unrepaired. Missing shingles are not the only signs of storm damage. Many problems can occur after a storm and a professional inspection from Accent Roofing will ensure they are found. Typically, the longer you wait to repair storm damage, the more severe it becomes. This means that your expense will be higher, and the time it takes to complete repairs will be longer.
If you are concerned that your roof has been damaged by storms, it is important to inspect it promptly. In general, hail damage is often easy to see. You might notice missing or damaged shingles. Finding shingles on the ground indicates spots on the roof that are vulnerable should another storm occur. Shingles that are curled, buckled, dented, or cracked are signs that your roofing system is weakened and further damage is probable. Another indication of hail damage is a build up of asphalt granules in your gutters. You may also notice dents in your gutters, or they may be loose.
Hail is not the only part of a storm that can damage your roof. When inspecting your roof, you should look for signs of wind damage. Broken trees could be signs that your roof has been damaged. Wind can blow debris across your roof causing shingles to come loose. Tree limbs and other debris could knock shingles off, loosen cement, or damage chimney bricks. This damage weakens the integrity of your roof and could lead to more severe damage if left unchecked.
Finally, storms weaken your roofing system and leave it open to water damage. The effects of water damage can be harder to find. If left unrepaired, water damage not only damages your roof, but also your home’s foundation and structure. Key places to look for water damage include gutters, ceilings, walls, and floors. If you notice pooling, water spots, or musty smells, you should call Accent Roofing to locate damage and make repairs.
No matter what type of storm damage your roof acquires, Accent Roofing of Amarillo can help you assess the damage and begin repairs. Your roof is the most important part of your home. It offers protection from life’s storms.
