It’s that time of year again — the time of year when southeast Mississippi finds itself buckling down for severe weather on a regular basis. Some of these storms are so bad that they can cause extensive damage to roofing systems, and if that happens to your home, Cox Roofing is here and ready to help. Check out the most common types of storm damage below, then contact our Laurel roofing company to learn more about the wide variety of services that can restore beauty and safety to your home.
Common Types of Storm Damage
There are many ways in which your roof can be damaged during a storm. The four most common types of storm-related damages include:
- Wind damage
- Hail damage
- Impact damage
- Water damage
Hailstones can crack and break shingles, and strong winds can lift the shingles on your roof and blow them right off. Wind damage can be especially worrisome because it can lead to secondary issues like water damage and impact damage. Simply put, when the shingles are no longer there to protect the roof decking and your home underneath, water can find its way in. Likewise, trees, power poles, and other large objects can fall onto your roof and cause catastrophic damage. Thankfully, our team has years of experience helping homeowners recover from storms.
Roofing Services We Offer
You might wonder if your roof suffered damage in a recent storm, especially if you see other neighbors having their roofs inspected. If you’re like most homeowners, you might not be sure how to spot signs of damage and you might not feel comfortable getting up on your roof. Our roofers are happy to save you the hassle, allowing you to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground while we inspect your roof for signs of damage.
In the event we discover damage to your roof, we’ll examine the extent of the problem to determine if roof repairs are an option. There are many factors that we take into consideration, including the age and condition of your roof, as well as the cost of repairs versus the cost of replacement. If repairs are the best way to go, then our team will provide you with an estimate that outlines the proposed work so you know what to expect before we get started.
There are some types of storm damage that warrant an entire roof replacement. While a section of lifted shingles can easily be repaired, it is often not possible to repair a roof when the entire system has been damaged. This is often the case with hail damage, as hailstones not only damage this shingles themselves, but also vents, flashing, and other components. If we feel a replacement is necessary, we’ll explain why and we’ll provide you with a full estimate for the job.
