Storm Damage and Inspections – Cincinnati Weather and How It Affects Your Roof

Ever hear the joke told when someone asks “What should I pack when visiting Cincinnati?”

They’re told to pack everything - A parka, a raincoat, flip flops, gloves, shorts, snorkel, sled, and windbreaker. If you don't like the weather in Cincinnati  - Wait a few minutes. It will change!

We are fortunate enough to get all four seasons in the tristate area. Our springs are robust with April showers and May flowers. Summers can be blistering hot with humidity and stretches of dry, rainless stretches. Fall gives us full foliage and crisp weather. Tristate winters are notorious for dumping feet upon feet of snow, tornadic frigid winds, and thick ice that can knock out power for days. While having all these seasons can be enjoyable to look at, it can take quite the toll on your home’s roofing and siding. Over the next few weeks we are going to take a look at how all four seasons can negatively impact your roof - and how to prevent problems and restore current damage.

Spring time brings a sense of renewal. You’re out from being cooped up inside the home and ready to tackle any home improvement jobs you thought about of over the winter. While the temperatures start to rise, the weather is still unpredictable. Heavy wind storms can peel back off loose shingles, bring down gutters and pull off siding. And since Mother Nature is fickle, it’s not unheard of to get a late winter storm where a day prior was 60 degrees.

Asphalt shingles, the most popular type among homeowners, suffers the greatest damage under heavy winds. Their light texture and weight allows them to sail effortlessly off your roof in a storm, leaving the bare structure open to the ongoing elements. With freshly exposed damage, an early spring snowstorm can reveal weaknesses in your roof - letting in water and debris. Over time this liquid damage can rot the very structure holding your roof up, creating repairs well above and beyond what normal maintenance would cost. Water leaks from wind and hail damage can pose a threat to your electrical systems, insulation, and interior.
