Storm season has officially arrived in Knoxville, TN, spanning from the end of March all the way to the end of August. Our consistent thunderstorms and occasional hail storms can cause major roof damage, which is a scary thought for homeowners. Cover Pro Roofing will perform a comprehensive roof inspection if you have concerns that your roof has been damaged by a storm. And if you find yourself in a position of needing your roof repaired or replaced, Cover Pro has got you covered!
Identifying Major Roof Damage
Unfortunately, you can’t control the weather, but what you can control is how well-suited your roof is to withstand a serious weather event. Relatively small problems can become big problems quickly if they’re left unrepaired for too long. Fixing any pre-existing issues can give your roof a chance to hold up under a punishing storm.
If you’re aware of any of the following issues, give us a call today to set up a roof inspection:
- Shingles that are missing or damaged
- Flashing that is damaged or loose
- Sealant that is peeling or loose
- Evidence of water damage on your ceiling or in your attic
After our team of experts has assessed your roof, we can provide you with a quote for fixing any damage that needs to be repaired. With a freshly restored roof, you can sleep easier knowing that you have the best chance of weathering Knoxville’s storms.
Common Types of Storm Damage
Storms can attack your home from a variety of angles, each coming with its own unique problems. If your home has been caught off guard by a sudden storm, there may be significant damage to your roof that needs immediate attention. The following are some of the most common conditions that will negatively affect your roof and increase the likelihood of needing a roof replacement.
We’ve all heard the whistling wind and the creaking trees outside our window on a stormy night, and these can be some of the most damaging things to your roof. Wind is especially hard on shingles, sometimes getting underneath them and lifting them off entirely. A missing shingle significantly increases the chances of water getting into your home.
Additionally, trees also pose a serious risk during a windstorm. Wind can snap off limbs or even knock trees over entirely. The resulting debris can puncture, crack, or dent the shingles on your roof. Damage like this can let moisture in, potentially resulting in unsightly and dangerous water damage to your home.
Although hail storms are much less common than thunderstorms in Knoxville, they are still a serious threat to the integrity of your roof. Thousands of small impacts from the ice can cause small dents and holes in your shingles, affording water an opportunity to get inside.
It only takes one significant hail storm to do a lot of damage, and sometimes that damage can go unnoticed. Even after a short hail storm, we recommend having a professional roof inspector come assess any potential damage.
Knoxville gets a lot of rain, and that isn’t necessarily a good thing for your roof. After wind, debris, hail, or just old age has damaged your roof, rainwater has an avenue to get in. Storms can often uncover pre existing problems, resulting in a potentially alarming amount of water coming into your home.
Water getting underneath the shingles of your roof can cause all kinds of issues for homeowners. From mold and rot to structural damage, none of it is pleasant and it can be costly to fix. That’s why the Cover Pro team has a claims specialist to help you navigate the intricacies of an insurance claim.
