4 Ways to Prevent Storm Damage on Your Roof

4 Ways to Prevent Storm Damage on Your Roof

Given its constant exposure to the elements, your roofing system already sustains normal wear and tear. But a major weather event will take years off your roof’s lifespan while negatively affecting its performance. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways to prevent storms from causing lasting damage to your system.

  1. Trim overhanging tree branches. High wind speeds can tear off the limbs from your trees, damaging your roof upon impact. This can leave dents and cracks on the roof surface, making it easy for water to seep through your roof and into your home. For this reason, make sure your system is alway clear of any overhanging tree branches.

  1. Have your roof inspected. Existing roof problems can worsen during a major storm, hastening the end of your system’s lifespan. That’s why you should turn to your reliable local roofer, Superior Roofing, for a comprehensive roof inspection. We have the necessary experience and skills to accurately locate any signs of storm damage and, once we find them, effectively deal with them through our high-quality solutions. This way, your roofing system can continue providing the exceptional weather performance you’ve come to expect.

  1. Clean the roof surface. See those leaves and debris piling up on your roof and in your gutters? They look harmless, but they can cause serious damage to your roof during a storm. In fact, they can scratch away at the protective granules of your shingles and even create punctures on the roof surface. To prevent this, always keep your roof clean and debris-free.

  1. Invest in prompt storm damage restoration. Any storm damage, minor and otherwise, should be dealt with quickly. Superior Roofing can help you with this.
