There are many causes of roof damage and knowing some of the most common ones can help you to prepare for them and prevent them. Here’s a list of the most common causes of roof damage:
- Lack of roof repair: Failing to get things repaired when needed can lead to further damage to your roof. Getting an annual roof inspection can help to prevent this from happening.
- Walking on your roof: When you walk on your roof with spiked shoes or when your roof is really hot, it can cause a lot of damage. You could puncture your roof in some places and even knock off some shingles. If you have to go on your roof, try to wear soft shoes and don’t go on it when it’s super hot.
- Wind: Wind can become very strong and rip off some shingles on your roof. The best way to prevent the wind from ripping off any shingles is to install high wind resistance shingles.
