Hurricane season is a scary time for many reasons in the Columbia and Lexington areas. One of those reasons is the

potential for property damage which includes extensive roof damage from excessive wind and rainstorms. While the

need to get a professional roof replacement increases significantly after a hurricane, it is important that homeowners

not wait for a natural disaster to consider a roof replacement from a professional, local roofer.  An old or damaged roof

will not protect your house from the severe weather ushered in with a storm.  After all, one of the main functions of

your roof is to protect your home. Waiting for the aftermath of a storm to inspect your roof for damages increases the

potential for extensive interior damage to your home during a natural catastrophe. Lexington, Columbia and the

surrounding areas receive blistering heat which over time can weaken your roof shingles and make your roof

susceptible to storm damage. Ignoring roof damage until the storm hits could end up costing you in

many ways that you would never anticipate. If your roof is already damaged, the possibility of extensive interior

damage to your home grows exponentially when the high winds and heavy rains hit the Columbia and Lexington areas.

Flooding is a major side effect of a faulty roof during a storm. Leaking roofs, brittle or curling roof shingles, missing

roof shingles, old, weathered roofing shingles, interior ceiling stains and wall stains, or a sagging roof are telling signs

that your roof will not sufficiently protect your home during a storm.

Your first and best line of defense in a storm is a healthy roof. Your local, professional roofer in the Columbia and

Lexington areas is your best avenue to a healthy, functional roof that will protect your home during a catastrophic

windstorm or rainstorm decreasing the probability of internal home damage.  Sands Roofing and Construction serves

the Columbia, Lexington, and surrounding areas.  1.803.520.6154
