Weather Conditions That Cause Roof Damage in El Paso
El Paso is known for fierce weather conditions that cause a great deal of damage to your roof. Aside from hail and wind storms, the intense El Paso sun can cause damage as well. You may have roof leaks or missing shingles. Whatever the case may be, we can help.
Hail Damaged Roof
The amount of hail damage roofs can take is hard to say. The damage a hail storm can cause depends on many variables. The size and density of the hailstones, wind speed and direction, and the age and quality of your roof all make a difference. After a storm, assessing the hail damaged roof might be difficult. A few signs to look for after a hailstorm include loss of granules, black spots on your roof shingles, broken or missing shingles, and asphalt that appears shiny. When it comes to roof repairs, there is little our experts haven’t seen.
Roof Wind Damage
El Paso is definitely known for strong winds, especially at the beginning of spring. The problem with roof wind damage is the fact that sometimes you can’t see the results of a bad wind storm. Strong winds can cause stress points on a roof. Over time, the roof’s durability can be compromised. Not only that, roof wind damage often occurs first at corners and edges. Corners and edges of a roof are especially susceptible to wind damage. If there are any spots where roofing materials are even a bit loose, the wind will get beneath and loosen them. Over time, if the problem isn’t taken care of, a chain peeling effect could happen, exposing large portions of your roofing.
Wind storms can also cause debris to damage your roof. Tree branches, large pieces of trash, glass, and anything else that the wind carries around can cause damage. Even trees near your home that have branches touching your roof can scrape and gouge the roofing material.
Roof leaks usually take time to appear. A lot of times, valleys in a roof aren’t properly insulated when the house is first built. Over time, certain spots, especially where several points or valleys meet, can become especially susceptible to roof leaks. When a rainstorm comes along, you will notice a drop or two or a wet patch on the floor. If the leak has progressed, you will see plaster from the roof falling. Roof repair will be needed right away at this point.
Signs You Need a Roof Replacement
While not all signs of required roof repair are obvious, there are a few indicators that you can spot right away. If you see granules around your home on the ground, this is the first indication. Missing or flapping tiles is another clear sign. From across the street, or while pulling into your driveway, you might notice large dark patches on your roof. This is another indication that roof repairs are needed.
Many clients call and ask how to know if they need repairs or a roof replacement. Our best answer is to let an expert assess the damage.
