Roof repair due to wind damage in Cumming, GA is becoming more and more common. And whether you believe in the theory of global warming or think the world is just experiencing a periodic change in weather cycles, the current pattern of increased storm activity is proof enough that ignoring roof maintenance is a game of chance you’ll probably lose.
Hurricane, tornado, or just an ordinary thunderstorm, all carry one common denominator: wind, the most damaging element that threatens your roof because it breaks through your roof’s defenses. It pulls up loose roofing, rips gutters from the eaves, finds its way around torn or missing shingles, tears open deteriorating flashing, and lets the storm inside. Once indoors, the roof’s structure often gives way if the roof has not been secured correctly, and once the roof is gone, the contents of the building are exposed to rain and water damage and the people inside will be as soaked as their possessions.
