How Bad Weather Impacts Your Roof

A Roofing Contractor Can Help

A roof exists to protect your house, but what protects your roof during bad weather? Quite often, nothing at all. After a big storm hits, it’s wise to contact a roofing contractor for a roof inspection.

Potential Roof Damages Caused by Storms

Storms often create all kinds of weather-related damage to a roof. The most spectacular storms, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, feature damaging winds that can blow shingles off roofs and clog gutters with excess water and debris and take entire roofs off houses.

Heavy snowstorms can pile so much snow on roofs that it makes them buckle and collapse under the heavyweight. 

Roof damage continues during thaws. The see-saw warming and cooling swings turn snow into ice dams on the edge of roofs due to inadequately sealed attics. Northern Exteriors has seen this problem repeatedly. During the next warm-up, the dam stops water from flowing off your roof. Instead, it pools and leaks into the house.

Your Roof Can Still Fall Victim to Damages During the Summer Season

Heavy downpours can cause water to seep in, allowing bacteria to grow. They eat away at shingles, causing rot. Even the tiniest crack can let in water. Extreme heat over days and weeks can make shingles crack or curl. Damp climates can cause moss and mold to grow all over the roof, taking years off its lifespan.
