Even the most robust roofing components are susceptible to different types of roof damage over time. As a property owner, your goal should be to ensure that the roof is protecting you from the sometimes volatile and extreme elements of Indiana weather.

One of the most common forms of property damage that occurs during storms is shingle fracture. One or two broken shingles should not have much of an impact on the shelter your roof provides, but over time a few cracked, peeling, or otherwise broken roofing shingles can turn into a significant issue. Unless you promptly attend to your broken shingles, it is only a matter of time before those around them begin to break as well.
While nearby Chicago is known as “the Windy City,” the Central Indiana area is much windier! With an average annual wind speed of more than 10 miles per hour. If your roof’s flashing has been appropriately installed, day-to-day winds should not be a problem. If your roof’s flashing was not installed correctly, however, you may step out of your home after a windstorm in early March or even in late April to find pieces of broken shingles all of your front lawn. And there are several reasons why you need to replace missing roof shingles.
Roof leaks can create severe damage to your home because a leaking roof is a type of roof damage that can expose various elements of a home’s foundation to moisture, spurring mold spore growth and causing significant water damage. A leaking roof can cause mold damage. Suppose you do not hire a residential roofer to repair this severe type of damage a roof experiences. In that case, you run the risk of the roof of your home being compromised to the point where a full-scale roof replacement becomes an immediate necessity. Also, mildew and mold spores can constitute a serious health hazard that can become deadly if they are not addressed promptly.
