For most homeowners, the roofing system is not always the first thing on their minds. Certain instances, however, make them care for the entire structure, like when a tree limb hits the roof hard and cause shingles to either break or come loose. In an area where strong winds and hail storms are common, you can’t afford to leave your roof neglected and get it exposed to further damage.
In today’s blog, local GAF roofer Deschutes Roofing shares important tips to consider to ensure the protection of your roofing system against hail and wind damage.

Serious damage may occur if one of the limbs fall and hit the roof hard. To prevent this from happening, be sure to saw off the branches from the trees. Exercise safety, however—you may have to call a pro to do this.
