5 Ways To Protect Your Roof From Storm Damage

Updated: May 31, 2023

Spring, Summer, and Fall are notably the seasons with the most rainfall and storms in the midwest and with that comes the threat of damage to your home or business's roof. The 5 best ways to mitigate storm and water damage are to:

1. Maintain & Utilize Gutters

The sole purpose of gutters is to protect your home or business from water damage. A properly installed gutter system redirects rain away from the foundation and landscaping, thus preventing erosion and basement flooding. Not sure what gutter system is right for your business or home? Give us a call and we will send out a technician!

Maintaining your gutters is imperative. Regularly check and remove any debris or leaves from your gutters to make sure that when it does rain, that they will work properly.

2. Check Vents & Chimney

If your vents and chimneys were not installed and waterproofed properly, leaks can occur thus damage ceilings and walls. Our team uses a variety of waterproofing materials and proper flashing installation services to ensure that you will not experience a leak around vents and/or chimneys.

3. Remove Low Hanging Tree Limbs

Low hanging tree limbs near your roof can add even more rain than necessary to your roof and can break off in a storm thus causing even more damage. Removing any tree limbs or branches that can be a potential threat is key.

4. Repair Leaks Immediately

Unfortunately, leaks can occur at any point in the lifetime of your roof. Regular maintenance can help prevent such damages. However, if you do notice a leak it is of the utmost importance to have the leak repaired immediately in order to protect your roof from storm damage. Not fixing a leak immediately can cause even more water damage and even promote the growth of mold.

5. Protect Your Roof From Storm Damage By Replacing Your Old Roof

If the lifetime of your roof is nearing its end, it is wise to have your roof inspected to give you a better idea as to when you will need to have it replaced. Old roofs are notorious for leaking due to the integrity of the roofing materials being worn out. If your roof requires a replacement, we offer a variety of roofing materials in all different colors and lifetime expectancies that will suit your budget.
