Weather, Wear and Tear: How Bad Weather Impacts Your Roof's Value and Longevity

The end of winter often signals the beginning of spring cleaning and home maintenance. However, as we transition from the snowy season to warmer temperatures, it's essential to turn our attention towards an often-neglected part of our homes - the roof. At Tri-Star Construction, we understand the importance of a sturdy roof and the role it plays in maintaining the overall value of your property. So, let's delve into how bad weather impacts your roof, both in terms of value and wear and tear.

The Impact of Bad Weather on Your Roof

Extreme weather conditions can severely affect your roof's lifespan. Heavy thunderstorms with strong winds, also known as damaging winds, can cause significant damage to your roof. Hail is another weather condition that can lead to considerable wear and tear.Even slow winds can wreak havoc on older, worn-out roofs. Over time, these winds can lead to extensive damage, reducing the reliability of your roof and ultimately affecting its value.Rain is another factor to consider. It can cause your roof tiles and shingles to wear down and even lead to leaks by seeping into cracks and crevices. On top of this, temperature fluctuations can cause thermal stress, impacting the health and longevity of your roofing materials.

Aging vs. Wear and Tear

While aging is a natural process for any roof, wear and tear—often referred to as "mechanical damage"—is caused by various external factors, including severe weather.Older roofs are particularly susceptible to storm damage due to their deteriorated sealing and binding agents, as well as brittle materials. Even hailstones hitting shingles can cause significant wear and tear.
