4 Types of Roof Damage You Cannot Ignore

Roof Damage TulsaAre you experiencing roof damage? If so, you must tackle this issue as soon as possible. After all, the roof is the primary part of your house, and you cannot ignore it. Please keep reading to learn about the most common types of roof damage you can expect in Tulsa. 

Roof Damage Tulsa

The Water Damage

The most common and dangerous type of roof damage is due to water and leaks. 

Even if it doesn’t do anything else, your roofing should keep the rain and any other kinds of precipitation away from you. However, rainwater can erode minor damaged locations and disintegrate the materials beneath them over time. 

Naturally, water and wood do not get along quite well, and the further the leak continues, the worse it gets for your rooftop and almost every other aspect of your home.

The following are some of the most apparent warning indicators of a leak:

  • The ceiling is dripping with water (especially during storms)
  • There were some shadows on the ceiling.
  • Cracks in your roofing shingles.

Roof Damage Due to Wind

This is one of the most common causes of roof damage. Even an ordinary breezy day can produce strong winds that have the potential to do significant roof damage.

If your roofing has been damaged by Wind, you may find that some of the shingles have rips or cracks. In certain instances, you can see that some of the shingles have entirely disappeared or that others have a curved appearance at the corners. Having this kind of hole in your roof tiles might make your roof susceptible to damage whenever there is severe weather.

Damage Due to Ultraviolet Rays and Heat

This one may sound like a ‘not so serious’ roof damage, but it is on the contrary. 

Similarly, if your ceiling has been damaged by heat or UV rays, you may find that some of the shingles have buckled or warped. 

Also, heat blisters are little bubbles or holes that appear on the surface of shingles and can be found if a thorough roof inspection is performed. Because it is constantly subjected to the sun’s rays, the roof of your house is especially vulnerable to the effects of ultraviolet light (UV).

Damage Due to Hail

Even while hail damage might seem like a relatively minor issue during a roof assessment, it can rapidly expose the materials of your roof to the elements that might cause damage. 

Furthermore, if there was a hail storm in the area region recently, it is a great idea to get your roof inspected by a professional to better understand the damage caused by the storm.
