How to Identify Storm Damage on Your Roof
It doesn’t take a giant tree falling onto your roof to cause storm damage. Some signs of storm damage are far more subtle, yet still destructive. Regardless of the extent of damage, Sprague Construction Roofing is here to provide expert restoration services for your roof. Here are the signs to look for after a storm passes through your area:
Strong winds can lift or blow off your roofing shingles, creating an entry for water infiltration. Winds can also rip off tree branches, which can scratch and puncture your roofing materials. This can be more damaging than the wind itself, so be sure to seek the help of a professional to prevent further harm. You can help prevent this from the start by trimming your trees.
After a heavy downpour, check your attic for water spots and peeling paint on the ceiling or walls. Severe leaks can cause water to puddle on the floor. This can is a health risk because it creates a breeding ground for mold growth. The source of a roof leak is often hard to identify, which is why it’s best to turn to pros like Sprague Construction Roofing to perform the necessary inspection and roof repair.
