Roof Storm Damage

Did you recently experience a storm in your area? As a homeowner, you are likely wondering if the harsh weather event left lasting damage to your property's roof. 

If you are wondering what you should do after a storm, the first thing you should do is check your property for damage. This article will cover some ways to identify damage and what you should do after spotting storm damage. 

The Different Types of Storm Damage

Depending on the storm event, there are numerous effects that harsh weather can have on your property's roof. Before correctly identifying storm damage, you should understand the differing styles of weather damage.

The primary types of storm damage are:

High-speed winds will have a different impact than hail, so it's best to know what to look for on your roof. After understanding the type of damage to locate, you are equipped to confirm if you have storm damage. 

Spotting the Signs of Damage

After the storm, you should walk around your property looking for signs of damage. The first thing you should notice is the condition of the roof's shingles and if any are missing. 

Shingles are crucial in protecting your roof, but strong winds can remove them and leave spots on your roof bare. Once the shingles are removed, there can be water damage that affects your home. 

Additionally, hail can leave dents in the shingles and the metal features of your roofing system. If there are broken shingles on a roof, they should be replaced as soon as possible. 

How to Address Storm Damage to a Roof

Once you have spotted signs of roofing damage, your next step is to work with a roofing company. A roofing company will inspect and fix the damaged sections of your property's roof.

For the best results, you should work with an experienced storm damage restoration contractor. Experienced roofers will know the best ways to address the specific damage to your home in an efficient manner.
