Even Light Rain Can Cause Damage To Your Roof

It’s easy to understand how large hailstones can cause damage to the roof of a home or business. The hail is large and heavy, and falling from the sky at an extremely fast rate. But did you know that even a light rain can be absolutely devastating to the roofs of some buildings?

It might sound silly, but it’s true.

If you have not had your roof replaced recently, then you most likely have some sort of hail damage. Texas sees hailstorms often. Just earlier this month, parts of East Texas were hit by hail as a line of powerful storms pushed through the area. It’s those prior storms that set your home or business up to be damaged by light rain.

Hail can leave bruises on a roof’s surface. The experts at Stonewater Roofing can help you identify these dark spots or dimples on your roof. A hail strike leaves these areas weakened and creates divots where rainwater can accumulate. In time, the divots erode to become holes. Now, instead of collecting rainwater, you will start to hear the ‘drip, drip, drip’ of a leak — even when there’s just a light shower.

A single leak may not seem like a huge problem, but it should not be underestimated. Soon, that leak could become significantly larger, ruin the insulation in your home or business, create discoloration or weak spots in the walls and ceilings, and wreak havoc on the living space or work area below.

Many things happen under a roof. Meals are shared. Business is done. Memories are made. Don’t let a small leak become a big hassle and interrupt the things that matter most. Let the highly trained experts at Stonewater Roofing take a look at your home or business and make sure that you’re safe from the next storm, no matter how small it may be.
