When We Inspect A Roof, We Look For Three Things:
Impact from hail will remove the granules from your shingles. This exposes the asphalt to your local changing weather conditions. This will trigger the shingles to rapidly age causing water intrusion that leads to interior damage.
Your shingles can be broken or removed by wind damage caused to you roof. Once a shingle is damaged, all that remains as a barrier is felt paper. Felt paper is unable to withstand the local weather before it breaks down allowing water intrusion. One of the biggest factors causing wind damage in, say, Mooresville, NC is the wind from storms reaching a peak of 60 Mph. At coastal locations, like Charleston, SC, wind speeds during hurricanes can be a lot more powerful.
Water Intrusion Points
These areas on your roof make it more susceptible to leaks. These include pipe boots commonly known as plumbing pipe vents, as well as other roof opening flashings.
A Fact: Water intrusion can turn into a very expensive repair if not quickly detected. As water leaks through the roofing system, it can damage the wood underneath the shingle. It then continues into your home causing damage to the ceilings and walls. What starts as a minor roof repair turns into not just a roof repair but also repair to the interior of your home.
