Checking Your Roof for Storm Damage

Storms come and go all year long. They’re usually normal, and so you might not think much about them. They can inflict unseen storm damage on your roof, however. When a storm comes through your area, don’t assume there’s no roof damage. Check your roof, anyway.

Check Your Roof for Rain Damage.

Even if you don’t see any tiles out of place, or noticeably broken shingles, there can still be small cracks and tears not visible from the ground. These little faults leave your roof open to moisture. Water can makes its way into your roof and attic during future rain.

Even if you don’t have missing or broken shingles, your roof may not be watertight. Underneath your shingles is sealing. That sealing can be damaged when winds loosen your shingles. This is very hard to spot if you’re not on the roof. Leaving the seal damaged lets water into your roof.

When you look at your home for storm damage, check the eave flashing. You should be able to see any bent or distorted sections. Any parts of your system designed to move water away from your home should be in excellent shape. If not, you could be facing water damage to your home and roof.

Storm damage to your roof can seem sneaky. That’s why you should never assume all is well. If you notice any excess water, anything out of the ordinary, or it has been a particularly strong rain season, inspect your roof.
