3 Things To Look For If Your Roof Has Storm Damage
The weather is calling for storms in your community. Weather experts say there will be lightning, debris, heavy rains and high winds which can cause roof damage. You know all the safety precautions to take to keep you and your family safe until they pass. But do you know what to do after the storms are gone?
After a storm, you should check your roof for damage. To do this, you can look for exposed plywood, tarpaper or missing shingles. If you see any visible signs like these, your roof has been damaged and will need to be repaired. Seeing some damage may require getting on the roof itself. Sometimes there is damage that you cannot see from the ground. To be safe, you can call an experienced professional who knows what to look for and how to access the damage. You’ll want to get it repaired sooner, rather than later.
- Wind Damage may cause shingles to be damaged. Shingles may shift, seals to break or completely go missing.
- Hail Damage will look like small round divots on your shingles. This may be difficult to spot, so try looking at your downspouts, flashing or gutters to see if they have any divots, too.
- Falling Debris can look like small cracks in your shingles. You may also see tree limbs or other debris stuck between your shingles.
If any of these are left untreated it could lead to mold, rot, leaks and structural damage.
