Being long-time roofers, IBEX Roof understands how to expect the unexpected. There are times when we’ve had to act fast in an emergency situation, like when a customer experiences a roof leak or when a roof suffers from storm damage.
The climate of the Pacific Northwest can be quite unpredictable and we do our best to make sure our customers’ roofs are ready to withstand any type of weather. However, some storms end up being more destructive than others, and homeowners are often caught unprepared.
Types of Storm Damage
Water damage is usually a result of heavy rainfalls of which we are very familiar with in the Pacific Northwest! If you know a storm is coming or a rainy season is approaching, consider getting a roof inspection to ensure your roof is ready. Not only can heavy rainfall cause damage to your roof, but it can also turn what would be a small repair into major structural damage. Additionally, it’s a lot more troublesome to get a leaking roof fixed while it’s still storming; taking preventative measures and properly maintaining your roof will always be your safest and least expensive option!
Strong winds can damage shingles and rip away gutters, causing aesthetic damage as well as water leaks. Without gutters, water won’t be able to properly drain away from your roof. Aftereffects of wind damage may not seem like a big deal sometimes, but don’t wait to repairs done. Otherwise, you may be looking at way more expensive problems later.
Hail and Ice Damage
Hail and ice damage may not be very common around here but are not unheard of. Hailstorms can cause granule loss on asphalt roofs as well as create dents in metal roofs. Ice dams, on the other hand, can weigh down gutters or cause water leaks in your roof.
Tornadoes are also quite rare in the Pacific Northwest, but they sure can cause a lot of damage when they hit. If a tornado hits your home, our crew will inspect the damage, make sure your home is structurally sound, and provide you with the best course of action moving forward.
