Combating Storm Damage (Part 1): Effects of Storm Damage

By Stacy Mellete

Extreme weather events such as high winds can cause significant structural and roof damage. Some of these problems are obvious while others can go unnoticed for a long time. In this first installment of our two-part blog, Affordable Roofing Systems discusses the effects of storm damage on your roof and the ways to mitigate them.


Commonly associated with tornadoes, hail can severely affect your roof system’s performance. Even pea-sized hail can fracture many types of shingles. As the expert in storm damage restoration in Largo, FL, we will look for splatter marks on your roof’s surface. We will analyze the extent of the damage and only conduct necessary repairs to get your roof in top condition again.

Strong Winds

Sometimes the biggest threat to roof is not drenching rainfall or penetrating debris, but high winds that can tear off your roof deck. If a roof was poorly installed, this element can blow off shingles and tiles and buckle metal panels.

The first step in combating storm damage is prevention. Before the next storm arrives, be sure to enlist our experts to conduct a thorough inspection of your roof. We will identify all potential areas of damage and make necessary roof repairs in Largo, FL.


Unmaintained roofs can leave you dealing with leaks and moisture damage after a rainstorm. Continuous water penetration in your home can lead to a number of issues. Your doors and windows can swell, your furnishings can rot and get musty, and doing your daily household activities can be tough.

Perhaps most alarmingly, moisture can damage your electrical system and insulation, causing short circuits and wiring difficulties.

As the leading name in storm damage restoration in Largo, FL, Affordable Roofing can ensure that your roof stays watertight even under a rainstorm. We will patch all leaks, reinforce weak areas, and make sure that your roof works optimally.

The best way to prevent storm damage is to observe proper roof maintenance.
