Roof Damage From Storms

Most roof damage will commonly occur during and after a storm. Between wind, hail, and other debris, your roof can go through quite a bit. That’s why it is so important to schedule an inspection quickly after a major storm. Licensed roofers will be able to check for any substantial damage that your roof may have suffered. If you’re wondering why you can’t do the inspection yourself, it’s because roofers are trained to look for the hidden damages. Any homeowner can look for the clear and obvious signs of damage like missing shingles or dented gutters. But there are certain things that aren’t visible to the naked eye and those the things that most roofers are trained to look for.

Leaks are tell-tale sign that there is some amount of damage to your roof.

Signs of Roof Damage

After any major storm, it is highly encouraged to contact a roofing company to schedule an inspection. The inspection is to look for any potential damages. Doing so can make sure you stay ahead of small problems so they don’t become costly damages. That being said, any roof damage effects are different for every home. For your roof, contact OnePro Roofing to complete a roof damage inspection to look for things like:

  • Cracked/curled shingles: Older or damaged shingles will appear dry and cracked or will be curling away from the roof.
  • Wet or soft shingles: Damaged shingles can’t effectively keep moisture out which means that it can get trapped and cause water damage.
  • Granules everywhere: A tell-tale sign for new shingles is in the granules. If you find piles of them in your gutters or around your home, your roof is in need of an update.
  • Splits: Areas around protrusions like chimneys, vents, and more can crack and split with time. They are easy fixes, but can also be easy to miss.  
  • Blistering/peeling paint: Poor ventilation means that water and condensation can build up. This can result in exterior paint peeling or blistering.
  • Water stains: Discoloration and stains on the interior of your home could suggest a leak or roof damage of some kind.
  • Sagging: Roof decking or fascia that is sagging is a clear sign that somewhere, part of the structure is damp from moisture.

It’s important to schedule regular maintenance check for your roof throughout the year. Regular maintenance can help protect your roof from serious damages during a major storm. Don’t neglect the other parts of your home though! Make sure to have regularly scheduled AC maintenance in FL as well. Maintaining your property will make sure that you don’t have to pay for costly replacements.
