Checking for damage is one of the most urgent things to do after a storm has left your area. It is possible that your roof has sustained mild to severe injuries from fallen debris, hail or high winds even if there are no visible signs from the ground.
Cracked, peeling or missing shingles are common signs of damage caused by strong, high winds. Most roofing manufacturers cover wind damage in their warranty; however, the estimated wind speed a roofing system can endure depends on how new and well-maintained it is. Get your damaged shingles patched up as soon as possible to deter water-related issues, such as leaks and mold growth.
If there is any loose debris around your house, like a yard waste or broken outdoor furniture, it may indicate that something has struck your roof during high winds. Be sure to clear debris away from the roof to minimize risk and assess patterns of impact with the help of a roof company.
Hail damage is not something that you usually miss. First, look for ground-level collateral hail damage around the house, such as dents on cars and furniture in your yard. It can be an indication that your roof has been disfigured by hailstones, too. Check for a defined pattern of small round-shaped hollows on the edges of your shingles. If you suspect that there is significant damage on your roof, call a professional storm restoration contractor to fix the problems before the problems develop into something more severe.
