How does storm damage affect my home over time?
Roof problems and lost shingles
After a serious storm, you might have noticed your roof looking a little less dapper than it did before. It might have lost a few shingles, or some shingles might be bent, torn, loose, or bald. You pay for repairs and don’t think about your roof again until the next big storm. This time, you have to replace even more shingles. Over time, this pattern can result in more replacement shingles than original ones on your roof.
Replacing individual shingles after each storm can compromise the integrity of your roof over time. You may eventually start to notice leaks and other problems. Even if you don’t have functionality issues, the look of your roof might bother you, with some shingles darker than others from sun damage and age. Instead of continuously paying for repairs on an older roof, put that money toward a stronger, brand-new roofing system. A new roof is a better investment if your existing roof has sustained enough storm damage.
