Unfortunately for most Homeowners, it only becomes obvious to take action months later in the form of extensive internal damage to the home that went unchecked, costing more money to repair than it should have.

HERE’S WHAT STORM DAMAGE LOOKS LIKE EVEN WHEN IT’S NOT OBVIOUS AT FIRST
The signs of a damaged roof can be pretty obvious right after a massive storm. But it’s the condition of your roof just under the surface that can be much more costly to remedy later on than paying attention to it now.
- Shingle condition Missing, curled or buckling shingles are a few obvious signs. But the granule buildup on your shingles, as well as dings and dents in asphalt shingles are also signs of early damage.
- Missing flashing along the edges of the roof and along skylights, vents, and chimneys can cause water to penetrate your walls and roof.
- Loose or pealing sealant along those same penetration points.
- Water damage in the attic or along the ceiling, and any moisture or wet walls, however minor, can be an indication of much greater problems behind the scenes.
THE 4 MAIN WEATHER EVENTS THAT AFFECT YOUR ROOF’S HEALTH:
Hail storms are one of the biggest threats to your roof during the spring and fall months. These pellets of frozen rain can cause severe damage to your shingles and flashing. Missing granules and cracks in shingles, as well as dents in flashing, metal vents, and metal in roof valleys, are all sure signs of roof damage caused by hail and the heavy winds that can accompany hail.
Wind can tear roofing materials such as Asphalt, Wood and Synthetic shingles right off of your home. The right kind of shingles are designed to resist tear-off from win, and a superior sealant on the underside of starter shingles keeps them in place at the edges of your roof, where shingle application starts and wind forces are typically greatest.
Snow & Rain Damage
It’s no surprise that Snow and Rain in the winter months can lead to serious roof damage. Well, let’s face it, there’s not much you can do to change the weather. But you can take precautions to protect your home from ice damming, attic condensation, heavy snow and ice, all being issues that can pose threats to your roof’s health and maintenance.
Trees & Debris Damage
Keep an eye out for branches that may be scraping against your roof shingles on windy days. This activity can strip off layers of asphalt. And also, their leaves ca fall directly onto your roof or into the gutter, which can lead to mold, deterioration or leaks. Finally, if the tree is damaged or diseased, a storm can cause limbs to fall onto your home, damaging more than just your roof.
