Storms can present a considerable risk to your home, and your roof is far from the exception. Coastal areas can experience high winds that can damage your home. And because the surrounding air has more salt content, corrosion can affect its performance. Your roof’s materials, fasteners, and other structural systems can be weakened by corrosion. And roof systems often fail when they get hit by winds at a force that’s greater than they’re designed to withstand. Roof coverings and even decks can get torn off the frame, and wind-borne debris can punch a hole through any part of it. While it’s less of a problem than other risk factors, it’s something that needs to be considered.
