Roof Storm Damage

One of the first tasks you have after a storm is inspecting the condition of your roof. Since your roof is your home’s primary defense barrier, checking in on your roof after a storm hits is one of the best ways to ensure your roofing system is still in safe condition. Some of the most common types of storm damage are:

  • Rain Damage
  • Hail Damage
  • Snow Damage
  • Wind Damage

Heavy Rain Roof Damage

Heavy rain can quickly get into your home, especially if your roof is already damaged. Damaged shingles will appear cracked, curled, or loose, but severe damage can appear throughout your home. Gutter buildup, ceiling discoloration, and wall bubbling are just a few signs of water damage. It’s crucial to spot signs of heavy rain damage immediately to avoid severe leaks or hazardous mold growth.

Hail Roof Damage

Hail damage can hit your home hard, causing noticeable signs of roof damage. Signs of hail damage often appear throughout your roofing system, with no distinct pattern. You’ll notice dark spots of various sizes on your roof. Oftentimes, these bruised spots will feel soft. Some other signs of hail damage include:

  • Chips or Cracks
  • Loose Granules
  • Dents from Impact
  • Shingle Splitting

Snow Roof Damage

As snow piles up, its weight can cause damage to your roofing system. It’s important to clean off your roof after heavy snowfall to avoid cave-ins. Signs of snow damage can appear throughout your home causing unusual sounds stemming from your roof, sagging roofs, and cracks in your drywall.

Wind Roof Damage

Strong winds will quickly pull up your shingles, exposing the rest of your roofing system to storm damage. Signs of wind damage will appear differently depending on the type of roof material you have. Some signs of wind damage include:

  • Missing or Curled Shingles
  • Shingle Granules in Your Gutters
  • Wood Shingle Rot
  • Bubbling Flat Roofs
  • Loose Chimney Bricks
  • Damage to Gutters or Flashing
