This time of year we experience heavy rain fall, drafty winds and other sorts of bizarre weather that spring ushers in. “April showers bring May flowers” and “In like a lion and out like a lamb” are not far from the truth when it comes to the weather that spring hits our homes with. Protecting your home from any type of storm should be at the top of your priority list, and when you think about the parts of your home that are exposed to extreme weather throughout the year, it is your home’s roof that takes the brunt of every storm that passes over. After a storm occurs, hire Nickerson Roofing to inspect your roof for any sign of damage that may need to be repaired to avoid further damage.
Do Not Inspect Your Roof for Storm Damage Alone
One major mistake that homeowners often make is inspecting their roof after a storm all by themselves. Many homeowners have no idea what to look for when it comes to storm damage. Not only do they not know what to look for but they are putting themselves in a great deal of danger when climbing up on top of their roof by themselves. Many accidents happen when homeowners attempt to get on their roofs. Ladders falls, footing is not secure and bones are broken. Even if you do suspect some damage, you most likely don’t know the extent of it or how to repair it. Leave this task to Nickerson Roofing. We are skilled and experienced in roof inspection and have all the appropriate tools and materials needed to inspect your roof for any type of storm damage.
Wind, Rain, Hail & Snow Storms Can Cause Serious Damage to the Roof of Your Home
Roofs are made up of many different types of materials from metal, tile, slate, wood and asphalt shingles. No matter what type of material the roof of your home is made of, it can become severely damaged from stormy weather. Shingles can go missing, asphalt shingles can become dented, tiles can be cracked or broken, holes can form causing leaks into your home and many other complications can occur from a storm. When a severe storm hits, the exterior of your home takes a beating. Hail, heavy rain, wind and flying debris are the number one causes of serious roof damage.
