How Wind Storms Damage Roofs in San Jose
Wind Damage to Roofs Can Leave Your San Jose Home Vulnerable
Weather events that can produce high winds can be as destructive to the roof of your San Jose home as many of the other storm systems that can pass through. As challenging as it might be to inspect your roof after these potential threats thoroughly, there are often several glaring signs that can indicate a need for repair and attention. The faster you can manage these vulnerabilities, the less susceptible your house remains to wind-driven rain, hail, or other precipitation concerns.
An excellent place to begin your visual inspection to see if a recent wind-storm has broken the roof of a San Jose home is at the edges and the corners of the structure. These are the points where your roof’s structural integrity gets continually tested by higher wind pressure . Budding vulnerabilities along this edge can begin to push up shingles, giving the wind more of a grab on these materials with each subsequent storm without repair. Eventually, as our SERVPRO team has seen, it can lead to considerable portions of shingles to get pulled off at once.
We have a team of general contractors capable of both roof repairs and emergency tarping services to provide the level of care your property needs at any given time. Exposed areas like insulation and underlayment can allow for water penetration into the house. Moisture and water damage can become a harmful situation when undetected in an attic space. While our SERVPRO team can help with water losses, we want to save you time and money by repairing wind damaged roofs before it becomes a more costly situation.
Looking over the roof yourself is not always something that homeowners are capable of, but our team can help with a thorough and honest inspection. We are looking for curling or missing shingles, and other vulnerabilities to areas like the soffit, eaves, flashing, and chimneys. We can also perform an interior inspection to ensure water damage and microbial threats have not developed from moisture penetration. We have a full team of qualified and experienced general contractors that can help with full-scale roof repairs, tarping, and even tree removal if the need arises.
Wind can be a destructive force in nature, even without the accompanying torrential rainfall or other precipitation. If you feel like your home suffered damages in a recent windstorm, give our SERVPRO of Campbell team a call to help at (408) 371-4001.
