The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) emphasizes the critical role that your roof system plays in protecting your property. The first step in ensuring a roof performs optimally is doing your own preliminary visual inspection and then scheduling a professional inspection.
If, during your preliminary inspection, you observe gaps around the roof vents, a few missing shingles or other signs of damage, you might be left wondering, “Is this roof repair work really something to worry about right now?” Well, the answer is yes. If these flaws are left unrepaired, they can render your roof vulnerable to significant damage during heavy rains and high winds.
Wood decking can become damaged after prolonged water exposure, and when it rains heavily, water can leak into the attic. It then soaks through the insulation and, ultimately, the ceiling could collapse. That’s exactly what happened in the photograph below, taken after wind-driven rain testing by the IBHS.
Watch the video now to see what water damage through a roof could do to your home.
Whether you just live in an area that’s prone to heavy rainstorms or somewhere that’s vulnerable to hurricanes, the steps you take NOW could possibly save you tens of thousands of dollars. In the picture you’ve just seen, the repair work totaled $10,000. Could you afford that?
