Summary

The blog outlines several unexpected factors that can damage roofs and lead to the need for repairs. It highlights that animal activity, such as nesting birds or rodents, can cause damage to shingles and create entry points for water. Additionally, extreme weather conditions like hailstorms or high winds can cause significant roof damage, and even nearby trees or branches can pose a risk if they rub against the roof's surface.

3 Surprising Things that Can Damage your Roof

You’d be surprised at what can damage your roof. Don’t let damage catch you off guard.

When it comes to your home, the roof is one of the most important components. It protects you from the elements and keeps your family safe and dry. That’s why it’s so important to keep your roof in good condition. Unfortunately, there are a number of things that can damage your roof without you even realizing it. Here are three surprising things that can damage your roof:

1. Incorrectly Installed or Damaged Shingles

One of the most common causes of roof damage is incorrectly installed or damaged shingles. If your shingles are not properly installed, they can loosen over time and allow water to seep in, which can lead to serious problems like mold and rot. Additionally, if your shingles are damaged, they will be much less effective at protecting your roof from the elements.

2. Poor Ventilation

Another surprisingly common cause of roof damage is poor ventilation. If your attic is not properly ventilated, heat and moisture can build up and cause serious problems like warped wood and insulation issues. Additionally, poor ventilation can shorten the lifespan of your roof by causing premature aging.

3. Tree Limbs

If you have trees near your home, it’s important to regularly trim back any limbs that hang over your roof. Overhanging branches can rub against your shingles and cause damage, or they can fall and puncture your roof during a storm. Either way, it’s best to keep trees trimmed back to avoid any potential problems.
