Prepare Your Roof for Spring Storms

We’ve already experienced a few spring storms and even a hail storm around our service areas. Ensuring that your roof is ready for spring storms can help to lessen your changes of a roof leak. Your roof is one of the most important structures of your home because it protects your home from the outside elements. Read on to get some advice from our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks on the best ways to prep your roof for spring storms. 

Storm damage can include missing, loose, lifted or damaged roof shingles. Wind-driven debris often cause the most roof damage during summer storms. Spring storms can knock trees, power lines or poles onto roofs, puncturing shingles or even causing structural damage. High winds can exacerbate roof defects that are already present, such as blisters, delaminations or neglected termination points. Severe spring storms can also cause flash flooding, which can lead to a fast accumulation of water on your roof. This can burden the gutter system with a large amount of weight, which can lead to roof and gutter damage. Roof leaks are also fairly common during the spring storm season. An unaddressed roof leak can lead to other issues, such as mold or wood rot in the attic, causing structural damage to your home.

Preparing Your Roof for Summer Storms

There are several preventative maintenance tasks that you can perform to protect your roof from spring storms.

  • Schedule a FREE roof inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks with Above & Beyond Roofing! We'll check the condition of your roof to ensure it will protect your home from summer storms. 
  • Trim back any tree branches that are hanging near or over your roof. Be sure to remove any dead trees or limbs from your property.
  • Have your gutters cleaned and checked to ensure they are in proper working order. They need to be able to handle large amounts of water. 
  • Secure any outdoor furniture or other items that could become a projectile during high winds or a tornado. 
  • After a severe wind or hail storm, schedule a post-storm roof inspection. By addressing minor repair issues immediately, you can prevent more serious roof problems from occurring.
