Preparing Your Roof for Storms Starts by Identifying the Roof Type

With the storm season lurking around the corner, many homeowners realize that the time to repair any roof damage and make storm preparations is now. At Paradigm Roofing we see the importance of preparing your roof for storms on a daily basis. Preventing serious roof damage and further home damage is often as simple as making a few basic preparations before a storm hits. As you look to protect your roof against wind, rain, snow, and other stormy conditions, it is important to start by identifying your home roofing materials.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofing is typically a great choice for storm resistance. While it can be more expensive, and some find it visually unappealing, it can offer great protection in the case of a large storm–that is, if it is in good repair. Metal roofing is a great durable material, but does need care over the years. Our roofers will be able to assess your metal roof to tell you whether or not recoating is needed in preparing your roof for storms. If you are looking to install a more durable roof than you currently have, talk to our roofing team about the benefits of installing a new metal roof.

Asphalt Shingles

One of the most common and affordable roofing options, asphalt shingles can be a great defense against a storm if properly installed. Improper installation practices such as poorly stapled shingles or a lack of adherence to roofing tar can lead to a weak and flimsy roof that is unprepared to brave a storm. Our home roofing experts can not only help you to assess the current state of your asphalt shingles, but can repair, replace or upgrade your current shingles in order to help you prepare for the storms ahead.

While these are just two common types of roofing materials, our Paradigm Roofing team can work with many different roof types to help you in preparing your roof for storms. Call our team of roofing experts at 972-542-7774 to see how we can help in preparing your roof for storms.
