Hail, sinkholes, ice, wind storm damage and building collapse can all cause varying degrees of roof damage. Minor forms of roof damage can be difficult to perceive — after all, a roof usually looks fine from the ground. You may also feel that something minor, like hail damage to your roof, is no cause for alarm. However, what initially seems like a small issue can escalate into major leaks and water damage impacting your property’s structure and contents down the road.
Obvious types of roof damage:
- Lost or broken shingles
- Lost or broken roof tiles
- Uplifted roof membrane
- Roof leaks
- Removal of roof decking
- Removal of gable ends
Non-Obvious types of roof damage:
- Separation of nails between roof trusses and sheathing
- The twisting of roof equipment
On the major end of the roof damage spectrum, hurricanes and tornadoes can lead to the breach and loss of large portions of roof structure. The most catastrophic storms can result in total roof failure. Severe storm winds can penetrate a building and generate uplifting internal pressures that can blow off the roof entirely. In such events, not only is the structure of your property completely compromised, you may also suffer the loss of your personal belongings as well.
