There are generally three basic forms of roof damage caused by storms. They vary in degrees of strength and damage, but all are common reasons for decreasing roof integrity.
1. Tornado – Tornado damage is the most rare form of storm damage, but is by far the most destructive. Tornadoes can rip shingles right off the roof, or worse, causing a need for immediate roof repair.
2. Hail – Hail damage is the most common form of storm damage because it is more common than tornado damage and is much more likely to cause damage than a normal storm. Hail can vary in size, but generally any size can cause damage, just in varying degrees.
3. Rain – The basic rainstorm generally does not cause damage unless the integrity of the roof has already been compromised. If the roof is already damaged, rain often further spreads the damage along the roof and into the interior of the home.
