Storm Season In The DFW Area: What To Expect

Feb 9, 2022Blog, Dallas, Fort Worth, Roofing

Your home is your castle, so when your castle is subjected to an onslaught of unpredictable, volatile weather, you’ll want to know someone with the determination of a knight to help repair the walls of your domain.

All goofy metaphors aside, weather damage is no joke, and it certainly isn’t “goofy.” When you live in the DFW area, torrential downpours, speeding winds, rock-hard hail, and even catastrophic weather events such as tornados are all par for the course.

With such an assault taking place on your home for much of the year, your home will surely sustain serious damage, but what kind of weather inflicts what type of damage? In this article, we’re going to give you some of the most crucial information on what to expect during storm season in the DFW area.

Storm Season In The DFW Area What To Expect

Weather, Damages & Post Storm Repairs

Heavy and nasty storms are commonplace in the DFW area, and if you don’t have the number of a professional roofing contractor, things could get messy faster than you’d ever expect.

However, there’s always a calm before the storm, so why not take advantage of this head start and learn about the common types of damage that you can expect your home to receive during a serious storm?

  • Broken or missing shingles due to strong winds

  • Damage to your roof and siding inflicted by hail

  • Rain leaking through your damaged roof and causing wood rot

These are the most frequently experienced damages during some of the worst storms in the DFW area. If you’re not privy to how severe the weather can get in the DFW area, plus how much damage these conditions can do to your home, then allow us to list off some of the worst conditions that you will eventually experience.

  • Heavy rainfall

A little bit of rain may not seem like much, but if your roof has been damaged in some way in the past, the chances are likely that there is a hole somewhere in your roof, which leads to leaking and wood rot.

Now imagine if your forecast called for heavy rain; that can’t mean anything good for the health of your home. Indeed, heavy rain could wreak pure havoc on the structure of your house, and this is due to more water pouring into the hole of your roof and causing a terrible amount of leakage that can easily bring about the dreaded wood rot.

Oh, and we cannot forget to mention the air quality of your home runs a heavy risk of degrading over time, as damp conditions can bring about the formation of black mold, which could lead to hospital trips for you and your family after prolonged exposure to the black mold’s spores.

  • Devastating winds

Wind may not seem like much of a threat outside of possibly bursting windows in the worst cases, but what you may not be thinking about is the possibility of strong winds blowing away your roof’s shingles. In the case of your shingles being torn away from your roof, this can render your roof vulnerable to further damage from the elements, debris, etc.

Like we’ve previously stated, if your roof is damaged, this increases the chances that your roof now has a hole in it. This type of damage can lead to the risk of wood rot from the overexposure to moisture, which can also lead to the development of black mold.

  • Debris thrown by strong winds

One of the most dangerous weather hazards are objects and other forms of debris being thrown by strong winds. Objects as small as lawn chairs and as large as family-sized trampolines can be hurled by these winds, especially in the case of a nearby tornado.

These projectiles can decimate your roofing, but also the siding of your home. If this were to happen to you, your home could possibly be rendered unlivable for a period of time, and without previously knowing a professional roofing contractor, this process could be even more long and painful than it needs to be.

Taking these potential damages into consideration, you can see how things can easily go from bad to worse in the blink of an eye during storm season in the DFW area.

With all of the destruction that such weather can cause, you must be wondering if there’s a way to set things right again, to get the damages repaired efficiently and affordably.

Leak repair

A leaky roof may not seem like a big deal in the beginning, but when the dreaded roof rot begins to take hold, you will regret that you didn’t act sooner. When you suspect any damage has been inflicted upon your roofing, calling a professional is considered to be a very wise decision.

If a hole is found in your roof by one of JL Moore Construction’s professionals, the fix could take as little as 20 minutes, so why wait until this rather insignificant leak becomes a massive problem? The answer is simple: you don’t wait. Instead, you could get peace of mind now.

Roof rot repair

Roof rot is one of the most serious problems when it comes to damages to your home. Roof rot not only compromises the integrity of your home, but also gives way for the growth and spread of black mold, both of which heavily impact the health and safety of you and your family.

Depending on the spread of the rot, repairs could take anywhere between a few weeks to a few months to fix, so don’t hesitate to give JL Moore Construction a call if you suspect any amount of rot is invading your home and compromising the health and safety of you and your family.
