The PNW is a beautiful place to live any time of the year, and part of what makes it so beautiful is the abundance of trees. This time of year, however, that can be a problem. Your roof is meant to protect your home from wind, rain, snow and ice, and this time of year, that protection is really put to the test. Let’s talk about what to do after a storm, and how to prevent damage to your roof.
Fallen trees, heavy snow, ice dams, heavy rain, high winds, these are some of the things that we have to deal with. After any storm, it is important to take a look at your roof and check for any damage. Roofing companies will be especially busy during this time, so it is important to not put it off in case you have to wait for repairs. If not addressed in a timely manner, more damage can occur to the interior of your home. It’s not always easy to see damage however. Its obvious if a tree fell on your roof, shingles were blown off, or hail cracked a skylight, but what about hidden damage?
