Signs of Storm Damage on Your Roof

Signs of Storm Damage on Your Roof

Your roof plays a vital role in protecting your home, especially during storms. Depending on the severity of the weather, it may sustain various types of damage—some may become visible immediately, while others may hide beneath the surface. However, remember to schedule a professional roofing inspection after each storm. The trusted team at American Roofing & Construction, LLC typically searches for the following indications of storm damage.


Hail Storm Damage

Hail damage often manifests as broken or missing shingles, shingles with round-shaped cracks and dents, and clogged gutters. Experts usually prioritize gutter cleaning after a storm and also inspect for bent or dislocated downspouts and gutters.


Wind Damage

Strong winds, exceeding 50 miles per hour, can cause significant roof damage. If your roof shingles already have cracks or are peeling before the storm, the wind is likely to blow them off, potentially leading to more extensive issues. To prevent this, it’s crucial to ensure your roof is in top condition through regular roof repairs and maintenance before an expected storm.


Water Damage

Roofers typically examine the flashing around chimneys and vent pipes, along with the attic and roof supports, for signs of leaks or water damage. They also assess whether there are areas on your roof where water might have pooled during or after the rain. Identifying and addressing water damage promptly is essential to preventing further deterioration of your roof and potential interior damage.
