Major storms can sometimes appear out of nowhere to perform significant damage to a roof. As a general rule, you should always schedule a roofing inspection to follow a significant weather event. If you don’t, storm damage that you’ve suffered can leave your roof highly vulnerable to the next round of hail, severe winds, or heavy rainfall. Pay attention for the following signs of roof storm damage, and call a trusted roofer should you need repair.
A water stain on your ceiling indicates the presence of a roof leak. If the leak has made it to your ceiling, then it has already traveled through your roof, decking, insulation, and attic. To prevent even more damage, make sure to call for repair.
Granules in the Gutters
Your roofing granules serve to protect your shingles from the sun and impacts. A particularly heavy round of rainfall can strip these granules and send them to your gutters, however. If you ever check your gutters and find an abundance of roofing granules, you may need an entirely new roof.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
Shingles that have gone absent from high winds will clearly need replacement. Shingles battered by hail, or lifted and creased from wind gusts, will also need replacement. You should always make sure to keep an eye on the condition of your shingles, as damage or wear will make your home vulnerable to leaks.
