Roof Wind Damage
Your roof is naturally designed to sustain strong winds. Over time, or from enough force, the wind can begin to wreak havoc on your roof. The pressure that comes from the wind pressing against your roof can cause shingles to become detached and later result in a leak if remained unnoticed or neglected for too long. Though the center of the roof is usually safe from high wind damage, the corners of your roof are typically where the problem starts. Wind pushing up on the corners of your roof can cause the shingles in that area to peel back only getting worse as time goes on.
Wind also carries the threat of carrying debris, which can cause damage to your roof through harsh impacts. Most common debris picked up by wind includes tree limbs and loose garbage can pound against your roof, damaging/ripping up shingles. Here are some tips that can help you check to see if the wind did a number to your roof:
Shingles can become torn off, cracked, or curl from the pressure of the wind. If you notice any of these happening, especially in an area that takes up about 30% or less of your roof, then it is time to call our expert roofers at All American Home Improvement Inc for a much-needed emergency roof repair.
Make sure to check your gutters for debris if none is visible from your roof. If there is a build-up of storm debris in your gutter, then there is a strong chance that there is debris damage on your roof.
Taking a careful inspection of the interior of your home can also help you spot any wind damage. If you notice any brown or yellow stains on your ceiling, paint chipping off the walls or ceiling, or you notice a sudden rise in energy bills, this all points to there being damage to your roof.
Roof Hail Damage
Hail damage is a serious threat in strong thunder and winter storms. The hard impact of the hail against your roof can harm shingles, cause leaks, and create a headache of problems. The main issue concerning hail damage is that it is hard to assess whether or not your home has been negatively affected. Since hail varies in size, damage to your roof can remain unnoticed until more strong weather comes along and continuously assaults the weakened area.
There are some visual signs that can help you detect whether that hail storm damaged your roof. There are two different types of hail damage. There is latent, which is damage that remains unseen, and severe, which is when the damage results in immediate leaks and noticeable cracks.
Latent damage can be assessed by paying attention to the local landscape and objects around your home. If there is obvious damage, such as dents, on your car and outdoor appliances then you can pretty much guarantee that there is damage on your roof.
Severe damage is easier to recognize since the damage is more extensive. Noticing immediate leaks in your home or missing/cracked shingles is a definite sign that there was severe damage done to your roof.
We can help you assess hail damage so that you can get with your home insurance providers to help pay for the repairs. When severe weather strikes and hail comes pounding down, don’t hesitate to call All American Home Improvement Inc at (516) 986-3979 for your estimate on an emergency roof repair in Long Island and Farmingdale, NY.
Roof Leak Repair
A leak is a cause for alarm. Despite the comedy of a leaky roof in cartoons, the damage caused by water can lead to illness and financial strain. Water damage is the number one risk of a leaky roof. Water pooling up on the floor, pooling up on roofs, or in attics can be a prime place for insects to breed and fungus, like mold, to grow.
There are some early indicators that will tell you if your roof has a leak. If you notice stains on the ceiling or running down the walls, then you’re most likely dealing with a leaky roof. Noticing dripping water coming from the roof or even the appearance that the walls or ceiling are beginning to swell are all signs that you have a leak. Left unnoticed or ignored, the leak puts your roof in serious risk of collapse, causing massive devastation to your home and potentially harming your family.
If you suspect you have a leak or any other roof damage, do not hesitate to call All American Home Improvement Inc at (516) 986-3979 for emergency roof repair in Long Island and Farmingdale, NY.
