This is especially true of older roofing systems or worn materials. Most storm damage won’t be as highly visible as you might believe, sometimes just being small punctures or dents in your structure. However, these can be just as damaging. This roof storm damage can go unnoticed allowing it to grow worse or create leaks in your home via roof damage or possibly plumbing issues. These need to be handled quickly in order to prevent extensive damage to your structure. When you have a leak, simple roof repair or burst pipe repair may take care of the initial problem, but there may still be weakened areas within your home.
