Storm Damage to Shingles

When choosing the type of shingles you want for your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are many factors that come into play. Depending on the climate in the area where you live, some shingles would be better than others.  If you live in areas prone to hurricanes, tornadoes or other dangerous storms, different shingles will work better than others.  The National Storm Damage Center provides great information on the different ways shingles can be damaged by storms.

3-Tab Shingles 


These asphalt shingles are highly susceptible to hail and wind damage. When hail strikes a 3-tab shingle, the impact causes the granules to be knocked off, exposing the base to the sun and elements. This can cause a number of problems including leaking, cracking, curling and shortened lifespan.  A tornado or strong winds can tear these shingles off, leaving your home unprotected from the elements. Long term exposure to these elements can cause wood rot and structural compromise, which can even lead to your roof caving in.  If your home has been hit by a storm, you should schedule a Lake of the Ozarks roof inspection as soon as possible.

Architectural Shingles 


These shingles are becoming popular due to their value appearance and greater storm resistance. Although they are heavier and more substantial than 3-tab shingles, they can still be damaged during a moderate to severe hail, windstorm or tornado.    Even on an impact resistant roof, hail can cause cracking, tearing, split seams and compromise the overall integrity of the shingle, leading to water damage, leaking and staining on the walls and ceiling inside your home. Missing shingles break the water seal and expose your roof to damage from future storms.

T-Lock Shingles 


These shingles were first introduced as a high-wind resistant alternative to 3-tab shingles, but have now been discontinued since 2005.  Just like with the 3-tab shingles, hail knocks off the granules creating a bruise, causing the shingle to lose ability to protect your home from sun, UV rays, moisture and leaks.  Since these shingles are no longer manufactured and cannot be repaired, chances are if you have roof damage, you will qualify for a full roof replacement, with new modern materials.

Designer Shingles 


These shingles outperform basic shingles and may offer features such as impact resistance, fungus resistance and longer warranties. As with other reinforced asphalt shingles, loss of protective granules, cracking, split seams, and missing shingles are common after a severe hailstorm or tornado. If you have a designer shingle, it is important to remember that storm damage can seriously impact the life of your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, as well as its ability to protect your home from damaging UV-rays, moisture and other elements.

Shake Shingles


These shingles are highly durable, resist sun, insects and stand up well in heavy rainstorms and moderate hail and wind storms.  However, since moisture is woods enemy, they tend to be installed in drier climates and require ongoing maintenance.  In areas prone to fires, these roofs should be treated with a fire retardant. While shake shingles outperform asphalt shingles in light to moderate weather, severe wind, hail storms and tornadoes can do serious damage to shake shingles, including cracking, splitting, and leaking, which may not be evident from street level. If your home has shake shingles and has been hit by a heavy storm, such as hail, wind, or a tornado, you should have a full damage inspection performed as soon as possible.

Tile Shingles 


These shingles are quickly becoming one of the most popular choices due to their beauty, high durability, energy efficiency and high fire resistance.  In high wind, hurricane and tornado prone areas, tile shingles are especially popular. They require little maintenance and carry a Class A fire rating which can even reduce the cost of your property insurance.  While tile shingles outperform asphalt shingles, severe hail can crack or break them.  High winds can rip tile shingles off, leaving the underside exposed. If your home has tile shingles and has been hit by a severe hailstorm, windstorm or tornado, you'll want to stay off of your roof because walking on it can cause additional damage, which may not be covered by your insurance policy.

If you suspect storm damage on your Lake of the Ozarks roof, give us a call at 573-302-0354 to schedule your FREE inspection.  Above & Beyond Roofing, LLC, is your locally owned residential and commercial roofing specialist, serving the Lake of the Ozarks area since 2004.  The company's staff has more than 100 years' combined experience in the roofing industry.

Use Your Roof to Maximize Cooling During Summer Heat

Whether you are replacing or repairing your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are many ways for you to insulate for maximum cooling during these hot Summer months.  You can even save money on your utility bills! Did you know that nearly half the money you spend on utility bills goes toward heating and cooling? Energy costs are literally going through the roof!  Your roof is your first and best defense against Summer heat.  Check out these 3 ways to keep your home or business cool and save you money!

Roof Insulation 


Insulation plays an important role in the amount of energy used for heating and cooling.  Proper insulation will help keep the cool air inside during the warm weather. Roof insulation can typically be added relatively easily when you are building a new home or replacing your Lake of the Ozarks roof on an existing home.

"Cool" Roofs 


In the US, over 90% of roofs are dark-colored.  These darker roofs have low-reflectance surfaces that can reach temperatures of 150-190 degrees during hot weather.  This not only causes higher energy usage, but also makes your utility bills higher. Lighter-colored, "cool" roofs with high reflectance and emissivity can stay up to 70 degrees cooler than traditional materials during the peak Summer season. These "cool" roofs also save you money on air conditioning expenses.

"Green" Roofs 


Consider putting in a "green" roof or roof top garden, a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop.  "Green" roofs provide shade and remove heat from the air through evapotranspiration, reducing the roof surface temperatures and even the temperature of the surrounding air.  These roofs act as insulators for buildings, reducing energy needed to provide cooling and heating.  In addition, green roofs can reduce and slow storm water runoff in the urban environment, and can even filter pollutants from the rainfall.

Choosing how you want to keep your home cool is just the beginning.  You'll then need to find a Lake of the Ozarks roofer you can trust to get the job done right!  Above & Beyond Roofing can help you choose the right type of roofing for your home.  Give us a call at 573-302-0354 for a FREE estimate on your next project!

Identifying Storm Damage

Storms typically do more than just get your house a little wet.  They can bring wind gusts and even hail.  This type of severe weather can cause major damage to your siding or roof at the Lake of the Ozarks.  Identifying storm damage is an important step in rendering any problems with your roof or siding.  

Roof Damage 


The roof is most susceptible to damage when a storm hits.  Fallen tree branches, flying debris, hail and wind are all common causes of roof damage.  If you notice any of these common signs of roof damage at the Lake of the Ozarks, give Above & Beyond Roofing a call for a free inspection!

  • Holes in the Roof 
  • Split Seams
  • Missing Shingles
  • Bruises or Dented Asphalt Shingles
  • Cracked or Broken Tile, Slate or Concrete Shingles 
  • Granules Collecting in Gutters or Downspouts 
  • Leaks in Your Roof or Ceiling
  • Dents on Vents, Gutters or Flashing 

Siding Damage 


Strong winds, flying debris and wind-driven hail do the most damage to the exterior of your home. Use this overview of the most common types of exterior damage to identify if you need your Lake of the Ozarks siding replaced.

Vinyl Siding
  • Cracking - Splits or cracks that run parallel to the siding, often in half-circles are most often found mid-way between the valley and ridges of the panel.  
  • Chipping - A small piece of siding at the Lake of the Ozarks that has been broken off, typically in the shape of a half-circle at the bottom of a siding panel section. 
  • Breaking & Holes - During severe weather, siding can break or holes can be punched into the siding by large hailstones and flying debris.  In this case, your siding is no longer protecting your home from the elements and will need to be inspected by a reputable contractor at Lake of the Ozarks
Aluminum Siding
  • Dings & Dents are most common. 
  • During a severe storm, it common for siding to be ripped completely off. 
  • Inspect aluminum siding closely when the sun is low in the sky because its easier to see damage at that time. 

Wind Damage 


With recorded wind speeds reaching upwards of 300 MPH, the damage done by severe windstorms, wind-driven hail, flying debris and tornado damage results in billions of dollars in damage every year. There are 5 factors that will determine storm damage:
  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Direction 
  • Wind Duration 
  • Flying Debris
  • Strength of the Structure
