A number of things can happen to a roof during a storm, depending on the severity of the storm and the type of roof. Some common types of storm damage to roofs in our area includes:
In addition to these types of damage, storms can also cause problems with roof ventilation and insulation. This can lead to energy inefficiency, mold growth, and other moisture problems.
After a severe storm, it's important to contact a qualified roofing contractor as soon as possible to have the damage assessed and repaired. Schedule your free inspection with Seaport Roofing today!

Overhanging branches can damage your roof and provide a way for pests to access your home. Trim trees and branches back so they are at least 3 feet away from your roof.
A roof valley is the place where two roof slopes meet at an angle. Valleys are important in directing water away from the roof and into the gutters, so it's important to keep these pathways clear.
Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and leak onto your roof. Be sure to clean your gutters at least twice a year, or more often if you live in an area with a lot of trees or debris.
Any time you create holes in the shingles or other roofing materials, you risk potential water leaks and/or voiding any roofing warranties.
