Signs of Roof Damage After a Storm
Storm damage can compromise your roof’s structural integrity, which is why it’s important to take the time to carefully inspect your roof after a storm. While some damage might be immediately obvious even to the untrained eye, other types of damage are harder to spot. Read on as Sprague Construction Roofing, the go-to roof repair contractor, shares some signs to look out for:
It doesn’t take golf-sized hail balls to damage your roof; wind and rain can cause damage all on their own. Start checking for obvious signs of damage like broken, buckled, or curling shingles, as well as missing shingles. If you have a tile or slate roof, check for cracks on the surface. These all present an opportunity for water to enter your home and spread damage.
We recommend inspecting your roof from the ground, as climbing onto your roof after a storm is dangerous. For a more comprehensive analysis of your roof’s condition, turn to Sprague Construction Roofing. Once we assess the extent of the damage to your roof, we will offer our restoration services to ensure your home’s continuous protection.
Inspect your roof for debris. It’s best to remove debris from your roof immediately, even if it didn’t cause obvious damage, as it can lead to mold and mildew growth and the weakening of your underlying roof structure. Turn to the experts for this job.
Look for any dents on your gutters and for asphalt shingle granules that might have collected in the system. Wind and rain can cause the granules to separate from your shingles, leaving them and your home vulnerable to harsh UV rays. Call us for immediate gutter repair if you notice these signs of damage.
