Stormy weather is part and parcel of most winters around the country but sometimes it can cause severe damage to parts of the home. The high winds and rains that are part of the average storm can damage the roof over your head and cause the following kinds of problems:
- Dislodged roof tiles
- Damaged or broken fascia boards and guttering
- Lifting on parts of the roof that has damaged the structure beneath and exposed the inner roof space
What Happens After Storm Damage?
The problem is that storm damage can lead to some serious and potentially expensive issues for any home or business owner. All of that rain can get into the roof space and cause damage over time to other things. This is often the case even if the storm damage was minor. When rain enters the roof, it can cause the following problems:
- Damage to insulation
- Damage to electrical wiring in the roof and walls, potentially causing short-circuiting and roof fire
- Damage to the structure of the roof, including the wooden roofing battens that support it
The good news is that experienced roofing services in Ayrshire can repair any damage to the roof but this damage should not be left too long.
Calling the Expert Roofers Out
If you notice that your roof has minor or major damage after a storm, always call the local roofers as soon as possible. The last thing you want is for any rain to enter the roof and cause even more expensive damage to your property.
