The full force of storm Hector hit Scotland on 14th June 2018 with gusts of wind reaching up to 100mph in exposed areas. Several roads and rail routes were blocked by fallen branches and worse still, a woman in Edinburgh was left hurt by a loose slate that had been blown from a tenement roof. High winds are extremely dangerous which is why it is always worth taking the time to check that your garage roof is securely fasten down and is not rattling around. If screws have come loose or are missing, the wind can get beneath loose panels and quickly rip them off turning them into lethal flying objects.
The weather has been very stormy recently in Scotland with flooding causing problems for a lot of areas. Strong winds have played havoc for some homeowners with roof tiles being blown off and fences down. Garage roofs have also been damaged by these strong winds. Garage roofs can be damaged by falling trees and debris in the garden. If your garage roof was already leaking and damaged then these storms may have made it worse.
Most people don’t realise that you can get your garage roof repaired under your home insurance. If the roof of your house is damaged, most people will claim under their insurance but you should also contact your insurance company about your garage roof too. This is often covered which means that you needn’t be worried about the cost of replacing or repairing it.
