How Bad Weather Can Impact Your Roof with The Dayton Roofing Company

As with most things, prevention is key. In the case of roofing, being proactive can save you a lot of money, time, and headaches in the long run. Unfortunately, weather patterns and natural disasters are often unpredictable and out of our control. That's why it's important to understand the potential hazards that can impact your roof and take steps to protect it, especially during bad weather. In this blog, we'll explore some common types of weather damage and how The Dayton Roofing Company can help you maintain and repair your roof.


1. Heavy rain and hail: Water can accumulate on your roof during heavy rain, leading to leaks and water damage. Hail can cause significant damage to your shingles, puncturing holes and removing granules that protect your roof from UV rays and weathering. The severity of damage depends on the size and intensity of the hailstones. Signs of hail damage include dings, dents, and cracks on the roof or shingles.


2. Strong winds: Wind can loosen shingles, causing them to tear off or become dislodged. It can also uplift debris and tree branches that can puncture or scratch your roof's surface. In some cases, wind can also pull flashing away from your roof, leaving gaps where water can penetrate. Signs of wind damage include missing or lifted shingles, cracked or curled shingles, and visible gaps or damage to flashing.


3. Snow and ice: Accumulated snow and ice can damage your roof's structural integrity. When snow melts, it can enter small cracks or gaps on your roof and refreeze, expanding and causing your roof to warp or crack over time. Ice dams can also form in gutters and cause water to back up under your roof, leading to water damage and leaks. Signs of snow and ice damage include bulging ceilings, water stains, dripping water, and frozen gutters.


4. Extreme temperature fluctuations: Fluctuations in temperature can cause your roof to expand and contract, leading to cracks or gaps in the shingles or flashing. Over time, this can lead to leaks and water damage. Signs of temperature damage include visible gaps or cracks in the roof surface, peeling paint, and bubbling ceilings or walls.


5. Natural disasters: Tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe thunderstorms can cause catastrophic damage to your roof, making it unsafe to live in your home until repairs are



made. If your roof has been affected by a natural disaster, contact The Dayton Roofing Company immediately for emergency repair services.
