Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the holiday season gets under full swing, Northern California is also preparing for its first major weather system of the winter. Over the holidays, many homeowners will therefore get to discover new leaks and damage that may have occurred over the past few months.
That is why it is important to periodically inspect your roof for potential damage or leaks, especially if you have a flat roof. Flat roofs may collect leaves, dirt, and other debris that can accumulate in piles and trap standing water, resulting in leaks. Periodic check ups in the dry season can help you avoid wet season surprises, especially if you live in an area with many nearby trees. Doing this before the rain starts is especially important.
Because of our regional weather patterns, damage can occur to your roof by winds right before the first seasonal storms. In California, our fall “Diablo” winds that often blow through the Bay Area between October and November frequently reach as high as 40 miles per hour and have even recently reached as high as 80 miles per hour, which can cause sever damage. According to the National Weather Service, these winds can send tree branches and debris flying and can potentially damage your roof. The worst of these winds can uproot trees and down power lines, but even if they don’t seem that strong at street level, tree branches and small objects can easily land on and accumulate on your roof.
