1. Hail – Hail is the number one cause of damage to a roof. The size of the hail and the speed of the wind vary, causing different levels of damage to the roof. Because of the density and velocity of the element, hail can bruise and crack a roof. Paying attention to the amount and size of the hail during a storm is important. If a storm seems damaging, calling a professional roofing company, such as Robbins Roofing, for an inspection may be necessary.
2. Malpractice – Storm chasers are notorious for quick, inefficient roof jobs. They are focused on quantity, not quality, and are often unavailable for maintenance issues, following the storms out of town. A repair done incorrectly can cause further damage, so it is important to choose local, quality professionals to do the job right.
3. Condensation – Sometimes leaks aren’t leaks at all. During months of significant change in climate, condensation can collect in certain areas, particularly the attic. This can appear as a leak if the condensation is excessive. This can still pose a problem if not attended to, so examining your attic for collections of water is important. If you are unsure whether it is a leak or condensation, contacting professionals to inspect your roof would be necessary.
