If you have experienced a recent hail or windstorm in your community you should check the outside of your home for storm damage. Some damage can be easy to spot like a missing shingle or siding that has blown off. Other damage can be a little trickier to spot like torn tar paper around an output pipe. You can call an expert to help you spot any problem areas or you can look for these few things after a storm:
- Roof damage: missing, split or partial shingles. Tree limbs or other debris. Dents from hail can also be troublesome.
- Gutters and downspouts: blockages from roofing material or tree parts. Check to make sure all the latches are secure so they do not fall.
- Exterior structure: scratches, dents, missing or pealing siding. Check to see if the paint is chipped or if debris is stuck in between the slabs.
Damage to any or all of the exterior of your house can lead to major problems down the road. Water can seep through cracks and missing shingles. Water can also run down the sides of your house and pool around your foundation or seep through missing siding. Once the water is inside the home it can then lead to mold and wood rot or other problems.
