When bad weather hits, your roof keeps you and your family safe from the elements. From high winds to sudden temperature changes, your roof undergoes a lot of wear and tear. After bad weather, be sure to inspect your roof for signs of storm damage.
Missing or Peeling Shingles
Hail Damage can Leave Small Dents or Large Holes in Your Roof, which can Lead to Water Damage
Are there missing shingles on your roof, or pieces of your roof laying in your yard? Have high winds lifted flaps of shingles or flat roofing membrane? These problems call for quick repair to prevent extensive water damage. When the outer layer of your roofing system gets damaged, it opens up the more vulnerable lower layers to a higher risk of damage.
Dents, Dark Spots, and Missing Granules
Hail can cause all sorts of problems, and they are easy to overlook if you aren’t sure what you are looking for. You might see a random pattern of dents or even holes if the hail was large enough. Hail can also leave behind dark, bald or shiny looking spots on asphalt shingles. It can bruise your roof, like a bruise on an apple, leaving behind a weakened spot where the asphalt granules were worn off. If not repaired, this can contribute to premature roof failure and leaks.
Once it is safe to go outside, look around your yard for signs of damage. If your car, shrubs, or anything else looks unusual, there is a good chance that your roof took damage too. You can also inspect the inside of your home for water leaks. Checking your roof for signs of storm damage is always a good idea!
