We all know the damage a hurricane can cause to a home. But what about the smaller storms? The ones we’ve all come to know well in a tropical area.

Over time, repeated exposure to high winds, hail, sleet, and lightning takes a toll on a house. Because of that, it’s important to tend to the state of your roof throughout the year.

At The Roof Guys, we offer the expertise to assess the effects of a storm and to complete any necessary repairs with the highest quality and attention to detail available in central Florida.

Checking Your Home for Damage

As always, we highly recommend that you inspect your home for storm damage after a hurricane, as this is the most brutal form of destruction we typically see in central Florida.

Realistically, however, you should be inspecting your home after any storm consisting of any one of the following:

  • Lightning or torrential rain
  • Power outages
  • High winds
  • Hail or sleet

When trying to check for potential damage, you should be doing so from the ground level, avoiding climbing on the roof.

You should keep your eye out for signs of damage on the inside of your home, as well. Here are a couple of common signs to look out for:

  • Ceiling leaks
  • Humid attic or crawl space
  • Missing or broken shingles
  • Mold or mildew stains on the walls or ceiling
  • Peeling paint on the exterior

If you come across any of these signs of damage, The Roof Guys can send a professional inspector out to review your findings and determine some next steps.

Types of Damage

Storm damage can take many forms. Putting off repairs on seemingly small issues is never a good idea. Over time, a small leak can grow and turn into thousands of dollars of repair costs. 

In central Florida, we see three major causes of storm damage on homes. These natural forces vary in strength, so it is important that any time you experience any of these, you check your home for potential damage.

The three major types of damage and some common issues they cause are:

  • Wind: causes loosened or missing shingles, home siding, or gutter systems
  • Hail: cracked windows, dented gutter systems, cracked shingles
  • Rain: leaky roofs, weakened shingles, chipped paint

Don’t be fooled by our name! The Roof Guys can handle all sorts of repair projects and have more than twenty years of experience in this industry.

Damage Repair Options at The Roof Guys

If you believe you may have storm damage to your home, it’s important to address it sooner rather than later. With each storm season that passes, continued damage to your home can pile into massive replacement costs. Oftentimes, what could have been repaired twice for a small cost ends up leading to irreparable damage down the line.

The Roof Guys offers a comprehensive array of services ranging from new installations to simple repairs.

At the forefront of our services are a range of shingles to choose from for general repair. In some cases, only a few shingles may need to be repaired if they are cracked or loose. Other times, the fiberglass mat that the shingles rest upon needs replacement.

If you have a skylight or gutter system that incurs storm damage, we can also take a look at those and offer potential repair solutions.

No matter what the issue, you can always contact us to schedule a consultation!
