Extremes in weather conditions can cause your roofing materials to split, crack, buckle or blister. This can cause leaks in the roof and it is possible for water to seep through.
Sometimes the roof can be damaged by falling objects such as tree branches or something blown by a gust of wind. It is recommended that you trim all trees that overhang your roof, but in wind storms damage from falling objects sometimes cannot be prevented.
Some roofing materials can be prone to corrosion, especially in parts of the roof where there are vents, chimneys and roof flashings. This can cause damage to the roof and can also result in leaks.
The roof can be damaged with extreme wind conditions, especially during hurricanes and storms. Sometimes these gusts of wind can lift roofing materials right off, causing major problems and the need for repairs.
Birds and Animals
Small animals walking across the roof such as squirrels and mice and birds landing on the roof can cause damage over time. If animals or birds make nests in the roof or try to burrow into it, leaks can result. When animals make their way into your attic, they can damage roofs from the inside as well as the outside.
Inadequate flashing or caulking around the chimney can cause leaks in the roof that would also necessitate a repair. Make sure to inspect your chimney and have it repaired if necessary.
