10 Crazy Photos of Roofs Damaged by Storms

Between the hurricanes, tropical storms, and blizzards in the last year, our homes have weathered a lot, especially our roofs. Here are 10 of the hardest-hit.

#1) How Long is That Going to Last?Tarp on a roof.

Sometimes it seems like one storm just follows another. In this photo, you can see that the roof, damaged from a previous storm, is covered with a blue tarp to temporarily protect it. But you can also see from the sky that another storm is on its way – will the tarp stay effective in the rain and wind?

#2) I Didn’t Need Shade That BadlyFelled tree on a house.

Have you ever wanted to sit outside, but wished you had some extra shade right near the house? After a monsoon, the family that lives in this house will probably never wish that again. In fact, they might opt to ensure that trees are far away from their home going forward.

#3) At Least You’re Not AloneDowned trees in a residential neighborhood.

In this photo, taken in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura, you can clearly see the patches on one roof where shingles have blown off, but you can also see that the rest of the street is a mess. There will be more than one homeowner dealing with roof issues after this.

#4) A Painful SplitDamaged roof on a home.

This is a photo of storm damage taken near Anniston, Alabama. The roof has just undergone a serious separation. And the tree isn’t doing so well either. Hopefully, the people who own the home are doing better.

#5) Cleaning up the MessDamaged roof on a home.

It’s not just the destruction, it’s the mess. This is another photo made possible by Hurricane Laura and taken in Lake Charles, LA. The hurricane has destroyed the roof of the home pictured, and that’s absolutely the biggest problem, but you can also see by the pile in front what a mess the storm has left to clean up. Imagine having to go around picking up pieces of your own roof from your property!

#6) Maybe it Will Wash Away?Beach front home damaged by water.

This is a beach house in Guardamar, Spain, damaged after a storm. The roof – what’s left of it – seems to be sagging inward, and large portions of the home appear to have crumbled into dust. On the other hand, it looks so close to the water that you wonder whether the ocean will simply wash the mess away.

#7) Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

Building construction

Oregon fires didn’t get as much press as the California fires, but a disaster is still a disaster. In this burned-out home, the smoke damage to the roof structure has done damage along with the flames.

#8) That’s Not How Santa is Supposed to Get in

Snow on a roof with a large hole.

The disaster that damaged this roof left behind a hole right around the chimney. With the snowfall on top, it looks sort of like what might happen if Santa had fallen through the roof instead of making it into the chimney.

#9) Is This Really the Time?

Repairing a roof.

Sure, you can definitely understand how a flood could damage the roof, and of course, you should fix it as soon as possible. But… while the rest of the house is still submerged?

#10) Look at the Shiny Stuff

Home damage.

Ever wanted a good look at what’s under the roof structure? Here, tornado damage has offered a good look at all of the bright silver ductwork under the surface.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
