Minnesota experiences both hot summers and cold winters, but the state also has its fair share of storms. Extreme weather conditions like blizzards and storms can damage your home’s first line of defense: the roof.
Types of Storm Damage
The roof protects the rest of your home, not to mention you, your family, and your belongings. Below are some of the most common types of damage caused by storms:
• Roof lifting or displaced asphalt tiles
• Broken clay or concrete tiles
• Roof punctures or holes
• Lightning and hail damage
Major causes of these kinds of damage include strong winds and overexposure to the elements. Flying or falling debris can cause holes and punctures.
If left unrepaired, any type of damage can cause serious problems to your home, among the worst of which is water damage. When water seeps through the roof and into the deck, the walls and other parts of your interior become susceptible to decay or mold.
