After a severe storm passes through, its important to go outside and assess the possible roof damage it might have caused.
Hail is a major threat to your roof’s integrity, and is a leading cause of roof damage during spring/summer seasons. The dents and holes created by hail can cause problems right away if they are severe, but sometimes, they can go undetected for a while until the true extent of the damage is realized.
Performing a thorough inspection after a hailstorm and knowing what to do after storm damage does occur can help you avoid the common pitfalls that come with roof damage.
What to look for:
- Water damage in the attic or along the ceiling
- Shingle condition: Missing shingles are one obvious sign, but you may also have buildup on your shingles. Hail storms can cause dents and holes in asphalt shingles and should be addressed.
- Missing flashing along the edges of the roof and along skylights, vents and chimneys.
- Loose pealing sealant along those same penetration points
Knowing what to do after storm damage occurs is the first step in keeping your roof in good condition as even a small leak caused by heavy winds or rain can cause worse issues in the future.
