Understanding How Storms and Hurricanes Can Damage Roofing

449162[1]

Atlantic hurricane season begins in under a month, so it’s time to start preparing your home for potential storm and hurricane related damage now. Knowing about the different kinds of damage that can be caused by hurricanes and tropical storms is an essential first step to making sure that your roofing will last through the season. Here’s a look at some of the different ways that these storms can damage a home’s roofing system.

Roof Lifting
When hurricanes or heavy tropical storms strike Fort Lauderdale, the roof is the part of your home most likely to experience severe damage. One of the worst forms of damage that can occur is roof lifting. Roof lifting happens when hurricane force winds blow against a low-sloped roof. This causes the roof to actually be pulled upwards off of the home, much like the wings on an airplane. Even if your roof is not totally destroyed in this process, the pulling force caused by these winds can severely damage your home’s structure.

Lost Roofing Materials
High-speed hurricane force winds can also pull the shingles off of your home’s roof. This presents the immediate problem of having a completely exposed roofing deck and can also contribute to moisture infiltration, leaks, and wood rot during and after the storm. Most Fort Lauderdale homes are built with hurricane-resistant roofing materials, so the number of lost shingles in a well-built roof should be minimal.

Hail Damage
Homeowners may experience some level of hail damage to their roof during a hurricane. Depending on the size and speed of hail produced in the storm, your shingles and roofing tiles may crack or break. Hail can also contribute to granule loss, which makes roofing less effective, even if the shingles are still attached to the roofing deck.

Before hurricane season begins, be sure to contact Paul Bange Roofing to have your roof inspected and prepared for hurricane season. Call (954) 981-7663 for residential and commercial roofing services in Fort Lauderdale today.
