Trusted Roof Storm Damage
Your roof is your home’s or business’s first line of defense against inclement weather, and you need it to hold up in a storm. If a storm has damaged your roof, you need immediate roof repair to prevent structural issues, moisture damage, and internal problems with your home.
Ribbon Roofing offers professional storm damage roof repair services in Pittsburgh. We can take care of any storm damage, and we provide a supportive service to help you file a successful insurance claim.
Types of Storm Damage
Your home may experience several types of storm damage, and each one can affect the condition of your roof in a different way. In some cases, your roof only has cosmetic damage, which comes with the risk of other problems over time. In other cases, your roof may no longer function properly, and you will need a complete restoration.
During a hail storm, hailstones typically knock the granules loose that protect your shingles against UV rays and other elements. If you don’t add a new layer of granules as soon as possible, exposure to the elements can reduce your roof’s lifespan.
A hailstorm can also cause cracks in your roof or damage your flashing, causing moisture to seep through to the decking. Over time, you will encounter issues with moisture damage, mold growth, and high humidity levels.
A tornado can wreak havoc on your roof. Tornadoes create a vacuum and updraft that pulls materials such as shingles, tiles, or panels off your roof. A tornado can also pick up debris and throw it against your roof, breaking your roof tiles or shingles.
At Ribbon Roofing, we recommend installing tornado straps that secure your roofing materials to the framing. These measures help to minimize tornado damage, especially in areas more prone to these types of storms.
Windy weather can damage your roof, even without hail or rain. When wind blows in underneath your roof tiles, it can cause them to shift or lift, leaving your roof deck and attic susceptible to moisture damage.
In most cases, property owners only notice these openings after incurring extensive water damage that leaks into their home.

Storm Damage Restoration
In the case of extensive deterioration or storm damage, your roof may no longer function well as a structural component. In these cases, we recommend a complete storm damage restoration.
This service is often necessary after a hurricane, high winds, or severe hail storms. As part of our storm damage restoration, we will install new tiles or shingles, flashing, gutters, and tornado straps.
Tarping is a temporary solution to prevent further damage after a storm. For example, if you have a large hole in your roof, we will provide you with professional tarping to keep moisture, light, and wind out while helping you with your insurance claim and the procurement of new materials.
