According to Weather Atlas, the thunderstorm season in West Virginia begins in April and persists into late summer. By July, thunderstorms produce an average monthly rainfall of anywhere between five to seven inches.
While the official start of the storm season is about a month away, you need to ensure your roof is in stable condition. With this heavy rainfall imminently approaching, your roof may be vulnerable. If it's older, it is much more prone to damage like curling, loosened shingles, fallen tree damage, and hail damage. Plus, a defective roof can lead to water damage in your home's ceilings and walls. To make matters worse, some insurance companies may not cover storm damage if your roof is a certain age.
Here at True Builders of WV, we repair your roof and replace any damaged materials to ensure it's ready for the stormy months. Our roof repair services are available to homes in Beckley, Charleston, and Logan, WV. Check out some key reasons why you need to take initiative and replace your roof now before the storm season begins.
If your roof is older or has a compromised structure, it will be much more susceptible to further damage in the midst of the thunderstorm season. Some damage that your roof may face in the event of a storm includes:
A defective roof will be further weakened by inevitable damage like fallen trees and hailstones. To give your home the most adequate protection possible, be sure to get a new roof before the storm season hits Charleston and the surrounding areas.
If your roof requires repairs after a storm hits and it's more than 20 years old, your insurance company may not provide adequate coverage, according to insurance.com. If your roof is this old, you will oftentimes need to get an inspection for your insurance company to provide any coverage. If you go through an inspection and are denied coverage, you will need to invest in a new roof.
Investing in a new roof for your home will give you peace of mind throughout the storm season.
Not only is a broken roof more susceptible to damage during a storm, but it can also cause interior water damage to your Logan home. A leaky roof can cause water to seep into your home and weaken its walls and ceilings. Left unaddressed, you may be looking at issues like mold and mildew growth. In severe cases, this kind of water damage can result in:
Before the storm season hits, you should be aware of your roof's condition. How old is it? Is it weakened in certain areas or otherwise structurally-compromised? It's your responsibility as a homeowner to have the condition of your roof evaluated and repaired or replaced as necessary. Failing to do so can cause a grueling and expensive roof repair or replacement process.
