Maryland is a beautiful state that experiences the full gamut of weather. Bright, welcoming spring; hot (but not too hot!) summer; crisp, colorful autumn; and fresh, white winter. While all of these gorgeous seasons bring their own treats and tricks, they may leave you wondering: what will they do to my roof?
Our roofing contractors at RoofPRO are ready to help you tackle whatever Mother Nature has to throw. All forms of extreme weather can cause damage to even the highest quality roof. Being knowledgeable about what can happen is a good way to stay one step ahead of whatever weather damage might be coming.
Heavy rain causes problems to every kind of roof. Rainwater can seep under roofing and cause leaks inside your home.
High winds can affect your roof in a few different ways. Shingles – the preferred type of roofing material amongst most homeowners – are lightweight and can easily blow off if the winds are high enough. Once the shingles are gone, the underlying materials are exposed and subject to damage.
If rain follows the high winds, there could be even more trouble. Heavy rain on a vulnerable roof could cause immediate damage to your roof, walls, insulation, and ceilings.
Hail can attack your roof, causing shingles to peel back or break off, once again exposing your roofing materials and inviting damage.
Snow is tricky because you usually won’t see any problems until it begins to thaw. That’s when you may find ice dams blocking your house gutters. This can also cause damage to the inside of your home.
