Storm Damage

Identifying storm weather damage can be easy or incredibly difficult depending on the type of roofing materials and characteristics of the event. In some cases it could be as simple as missing shingles or tree limbs impacting your roof, but less obvious damage often occurs that requires a Trained Professional to find. Hail strikes, damage to gutters, debonded shingles often go unnoticed until deterioration causes significant damage or a later storm triggers much greater damage due to the weakened roof system.

If you suspect you may have storm damage, call us for a free evaluation. If there is a valid claim your roof can be replaced at only the cost of your deductible.

Old Age

As your roof system ages from exposure to rain and sunlight, it eventually begins to deteriorate. The life expectancy of a roof will vary depending on specific site conditions but in general, the life expectancy by roofing materials are:

  • Asphalt Shingles, 3-Tab: 15-18 Years
  • Asphalt Shingles, Architectural: 24-30 years
  • Concrete Tile: 35-50 years
  • Built Up & Modified bitumen roofing: 10-16 years

A roof life expectancy can deviate significantly from the average. Some factors that contribute to a longer or shorter life of the roof are:

  • Angle of Roof Slope - Higher pitch roofs tend to last longer
  • Quality of Roof Materials - "Economy" roof materials have a shorter life span
  • Quality of Workmanship - Improper installation reduces roof life
  • Attic Ventilation - A poorly ventilated attics leads to blistering and granule loss which reduces life span
  • Trees Near Roof - Tree branches rubbing on a roof will create damage and accumulated debris will reduce the life of the roof

The main causes of roof leaks are a result of improper installation of a roofing component, impact of tree limbs, missing roofing components as a result of storm damage and in some more rare cases structural failure of the underlying supporting structure can lead to excessive stress that leads to roofing material failure. Areas of the roof system where penetrations take place (lead stacks, vents, ie) are especially vulnerable to fail when improperly or sloppy installation takes place.
