Here’s the rundown on storms, roof repair services, and your roof!

Finding the best roof repair services to restore your roof should always be a top priority after your roof sustains damage from wind, hail, or other adverse weather conditions. A damaged roof is a vulnerable roof, and leaving issues unaddressed will only lead to more expensive problems down the line! 

As storm restoration specialists here in San Antonio, the Dolan Roofing team has seen the importance of repairing your roof firsthand. Given the hail storm that recently struck San Antonio, we thought it’d be a good idea to cover this topic in a bit more detail. So today, we’re breaking down why it’s so important to hire the best roof repair service you can find following a storm!

Storm season is now in full swing!

While it’s hard to say how many storms we get per year in San Antonio, what’s clear is that storm season is now in full swing. April 28th saw the first major hail storm strike the Alamo City, and we’ve seen plenty of severe weather since then.

Following the recent major storms, homeowners in the area are likely worried about the state of their roof as storm season begins in full. If your home sustained roofing damage, there are a few big reasons why it’s important to schedule a roof repair from one of the best roofing experts right away. 

What do storms do to a roof?

Severe storms can cause a lot of damage to your roof and home exterior. Part of the reason storms are so destructive hs because they have so many ways to cause damage. High winds can tear off shingles and loose flashing, while also ripping apart deteriorating flat roofs. Heavy rains are sure to cause problems for roofs with poor drainage or existing damage such as holes or gaps.

Of course, the most destructive type of storm for your roof is a hail storm. Storms producing hail can wreak havoc on your roof and the rest of your property, especially if the hail is large in size and dense. Large, dense hail is liable to dent roofing materials, siding, gutters, flashing, and any other exposed portion of your home’s exterior. In some cases, hail can even punch holes in your roof!

Why it’s important to schedule a roof repair right away

Given all the damage storms can cause to your roof, homeowners are likely concerned following our recent bouts of severe weather. Other homeowners might be wondering if they can put off repairs until storm season ends, however.

As storm restoration and roof repair experts, our best advice is to schedule a roof repair sooner rather than later. As we mentioned earlier, a damaged roof is a vulnerable roof. What exactly does that mean? Well, it means that if your roof has been damaged in some way by recent storm activity, it’s much more liable to be damaged by a future storm. 

For example, hail can damage gutters and drainage systems while potentially creating cracks and holes in a roof. That, in turn, leaves your roof more vulnerable to damage from heavy rains, which can now seep in and damage more interior parts of your home. You may very well be left needing much more expensive home repairs as a result of leaving that initial hail damage unaddressed.
