The Best Way To Repair a Roof Damaged by Wind

4/16/2018 (Permalink)

A home damaged after a storm.

Roof repair techniques vary widely based on the type of roof, damage incurred and various other factors. Wind damage causes a variety of issues:
* Partial shingle or shake damage
* Lifted layers, usually in improperly installed or older roofs
* Impact damage from windblown objects


Like many places in the country, homes in Affton, MO are susceptible to nearly any type of wind-related catastrophes. While the methods may vary, the best repair contractors always look at the whole home. This holistic approach is often the only way to restore a house to a like-new state.


Water Damage


One common side effect of a damaged roof is seepage and leaks. This might happen regardless of how small a roof problem is. Even a couple of missing shingles or a damaged gutter could potentially lead to thousands of dollars of water damage remediation work down the road if a roof repair company misses a problem.


The issue with roofing is that it's not always in a contractor's job description to inspect a home for water damage. That's why it is usually a good idea to hire a company that will look at both your roof issues and the secondary problems those issues might cause.


Thinking Small


One of the counterintuitive things about this type of repair involves the size of the job. It's arguably more important to hire a quality company when a smaller repair is involved. That's because, while large repair jobs usually involve replacing an entire section of roof, smaller jobs require a technician to integrate a patch seamlessly into an existing roof. The quality of the craftsmanship and materials determines the durability, appearance and effectiveness of these small repairs.


It is one thing to repair a roof after it's damaged by wind. It's another thing entirely to restore a home to the point where it seems like the disaster never happened. Quality roof repair contractors restore wind-damaged homes by looking at the whole roof problem and using the highest level of professionalism to solve it.
