Storms and tornadoes are wonders of nature. Then again, they also embody nature at its most violent, and present a very real threat to life and property. Springtime is the most common season for tornadoes, and although the spring months are when tornadoes commonly strike, they have been observed to occur all year round in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Now that spring is almost here, that means it’s time to have your roof checked for readiness. While you can only do so much to prepare for an F5 or even an F3 tornado, it is best to ensure that your roof is well-built and structurally sound. If not, even a regular storm can cause your roof to come apart easier than it should.
If the roof is properly installed, it would greatly contribute to your roofing system’s overall durability and longevity, more so if you are able to invest in a thorough professional inspection of it once or twice a year. That being said, it can take some time to establish a continuing roof maintenance program that involves inspecting the roof before the onset of a storm or severe weather disturbance and repairing it once a storm or tornado has passed.
A roof inspection basically involves a few easy-to-manage steps. Such procedures reveal the necessary details regarding the condition of your roof. At the same time, they will let you know what roof problems typically look like, and how to deal with existing or potential roof issues.
The main reason to perform regular inspections is to catch problems before they turn disastrous. Once you’ve established a regular inspection schedule, it would do you well to have one of the leading Dallas roofing companies do a once-over prior to “tornado season”, which usually starts in March and ends in August. Apart from ensuring that your entire roof structure is intact, they’ll be able to remove anything that’s clogging your roof drains and gutters so that rainwater (in case of storms) can flow freely.
Roof maintenance and repair should be one of your top priorities as a homeowner. Don’t make the mistake of letting your guard down—have a professional Dallas roofing company like G&G General Contractors inspect your roof as a preventive measure and carry out prompt repairs in the aftermath of a storm or tornado.
