Living in Oklahoma puts many homeowners at considerable risk of suffering some sort of wind or storm damage. Tornadoes can happen at any time of year in the Sooner State, and with these storm fronts often comes damaging winds, relentless hail, and drenching rains. Typical damage to homes and other buildings can range in severity from broken windows to damaged or collapsed roofing. When you need emergency repair to your home or other structure to make sure that the structure is weather-proof again, look no farther than Dason Fire & Water Restoration.
Common Examples of Roof Damage
A violent wind storm can wreak havoc on even the most sturdy roof. Roof damage can take a number of different forms, and some of the most common types of roof damage we see and repair includes:
- Roof shingles that have been ripped off of the roof by a storm
- Vents that have been ripped off by strong winds.
- Flashing that has been bent or ripped off of the roof by strong winds.
- Collapsed roof damage due to falling trees.
- Scarring or other damage caused by a tree branch or flying debris.
- Hail damage on shingles, shakes and vents.
The above listing is not comprehensive. Roof damage can take many different forms and needs to be repaired promptly.
Roof Problems Need Immediate Attention
When there is something wrong with your roof, it is important that you get the problem taken care of as soon as possible, otherwise, you risk other types of damage occurring to your home as a result of your damaged roof. To say this another way, other problems begin to develop very quickly in your home if you do not take care of roof damage immediately.
For starters, if your roof damage leaves your roof no longer waterproof, rain water can get into your attic space and saturate insulation, wooden roof support beams, and possibly even leaking through your ceiling. When water gets into your home it causes all kinds of problems. Water also makes for a good breeding ground for mold and pests – both of which are some of a homeowner’s worst nightmares.
