Contrary to what the mercury reads, spring is just around the corner. As much as we hated to believe it, The World’s Oldest Meteorological Marmot Puxatony Phil predicted 8 more weeks of winter, and he wasn’t kidding. The winter thaw is on and as the ground softens and tulips pop, winter storms and buildup can leave a great deal of dirt, debris and damage around your home. While many homeowners walk out of their houses this time of year and look straight ahead at what’s collected on their winter to-do lists, they should also be looking up to the roof. Winter’s snow, hail, sleet, and ice can cause a great deal of damage to residential roofs, and that’s why a residential roof inspection is so important in the spring.
Roof inspections should be done at least once a year, and the spring is a great time to have us out. A professionally certified HAAG Inspector in greater Cincinnati and Dayton will be able to give your roof a thorough peek and look for signs of damage. These may include cracked caulking or sealants; membrane damage; structural issues as a result from the roof holding heavy snow all winter long; underlying insulation problems due to water saturation; loose flashing; and a buildup of debris in gutters. An inspection will unveil all of these problems early, and could prevent the need for a new roof, or even extensive repairs.
Of all the many components that make up a home, the roof is one of the most critical. It is also the one piece that takes the most abuse day in and day out. After years of being exposed to the harsh effects of rain, sun, wind, temperatures, and the other elements of Cincinnati weather, the shingles or tiles on your roof will start to wear out and become damaged. Curling, peeling, even disintegration of roof shingles and other roofing components, can weaken your roof and put you, your family, and your possessions at risk. Repairing damaged roofs and gutter systems is one of the most critical components in home ownership.
Repairing Damaged Roofs After Storms
Many homeowners are surprised to find that wind can really devastate a roof; especially one that is old, that has not been properly cared for, or that is already damaged. Wind damage is most often the worst aspect of the storm because it can rip off shingles and slam debris into the roof, causing extensive damage. That plethora of lawn decorations your neighbor has out? Don’t be surprised when one gets lodged in your siding.
Other aspects of the storm can also damage the roof system, and hail is a prime example. Hurling golf ball sized lumps of ice can rip off shingles, crack and shatter tiles, and drive holes into the roofing components. Last year’s hail store did numbers on people roofs and cars.. It can and will likely happen again. Mother Nature loves surprises!
