How to Protect Your Roof from Storm Damage

As spring unfolds across Northeast Georgia, we revel in the return of warmer temperatures and blooming landscapes. However, along with the beauty of the season comes the inevitability of spring storms.

At United Contracting & Roofing, our experienced team is here to help fortify your home against the unpredictable weather.

Understanding Climate in Northeast GA

Northeast Georgia boasts a varied climate, from more subtropical weather near Atlanta to milder winters and cooler summers near the northern tip of the state. However, spring inevitably brings an increase in rainfall and occasional strong thunderstorms. The region experiences an average annual rainfall of approximately 45 inches, with the spring months typically contributing a significant portion to this total.

Preventing Spring Storm Damage

Thorough Inspection- Before spring storms arrive, schedule a comprehensive inspection of your roof. Our expert team at United Contracting & Roofing can identify any vulnerabilities such as loose or damaged shingles, deteriorated flashing, or compromised seals around vents and chimneys. Addressing these issues before the storms hit can mitigate the risk of damage during severe weather events.

Reinforcement Measures- Consider reinforcing your roof to enhance its resilience against spring storms. This may involve installing impact-resistant shingles, upgrading to a higher quality underlayment, or adding additional fasteners to secure your roof components more effectively.

Gutter Maintenance- Ensure your gutters and downspouts are clear of debris to facilitate proper drainage during heavy rainfall. Clogged gutters can lead to water pooling on your roof, increasing the risk of leaks and even structural damage from prolonged exposure to water.
