Even the smallest leak from your property’s roof can cause havoc inside your home to furniture, drywall, and flooring.

That's why we always recommend that you call in a specialist restoration company like Swift Restoration after a storm to assess for signs of damage. 

What type of weather events can cause roof damage?

Strong wind - strong winds can cause roof shingles to deteriorate or even come off. Debris blown around by the wind may also puncture shingles, causing them to tear or split, leaving your roof open to the elements.

Rain - rain is the most common cause of roof damage in the US. Rain has a habit of getting through even the tiniest gaps and may lead to mold infestation and rot. 

Storms - high winds, torrential rain, and hail can cause severe damage to the roof of a property. Hail can impact shingles leaving dents, the storm may damage or remove flashing and cause severe structural damage to the roof. Often structural damage can go undetected to the untrained eye, so always call a restoration company to check the roof of your property after a storm.
