How to Spot Roof Damage from a Severe Storm?
While it’s always best to have a roofing professional examine your home after a severe storm, there are a few things that you can look out for that will likely point to damage that needs to be addressed.
• Missing Materials – Take a short walk around your home and look to see if you notice any missing shingles, fascia or other roofing materials that may have been damaged by hail, wind or rain.
• Attic – If you have an attic, you can periodically look underneath your roof to spot any damage. Water stains on your ceiling is also another sign of roof leaks, but many times you’ll see damage on the underside of your roof before you see anything on your ceilings.
• Hail Damage – Hail can cause significant roof damage including indentations in your shingles as well as damage to siding and gutters.
• Downed Trees or Power Lines – If you notice downed trees or power lines on your roof, it’s best to immediately call your electricity provider as well as your roofer. Do not attempt to get on your roof when trees and/or power lines have fallen.
