After a strong storm passes, it’s important to go outside and assess the possible roof damage it could have possibly caused. Knowing what to do after storm damage occurs is the first step in keeping your roof in good condition as even a small leak, which can grow fast, can cause big problems for you and your roof in the future.
Wind Damage is another thing to watch out for. Wind storms and lead to the deterioration of your shingles and the possibility of debris falling onto your roof and damaging it. Shingles can actually lift up, come off, be punctured and even leave spots open for leaks, when the next rainstorm comes. You may not notice roof damage from wind storms, considering it isn't always obvious, especially in the case of missing flashing in the crevices in your roof. That is why we recommend that it’s important to do a thorough inspection after strong winds rattle your home.
Another part of storm damage can be from Hail damage
Hail is one of the the leading causes of roof damage in the spring and fall. It is a major threat to the integrity of your roof. The dings and holes created by hail can cause problems right away if they’re bad enough and can go undetected for the next few storms until the true extent of the damage is truly seen. Having a thorough inspection after a hail storm and knowing what to do after storm damage does occur can help you truly help you avoid the common pitfalls that come along with hail roof damage.
Rain damage seems to be the biggest problem of all roofing issues. It is the most common and of the most noticeable of all the types of storm damage that happens to your roof. Basically, Your roof’s lifelong enemy is always water, and when leaks caused by other types of storms or just the old age your roof can start to expose the internal layers of your roof to moisture, problems start to happen. This can cause mold, rot, leaks and structural damage, which are all signs of rain damage as well, and indicators that your roof may need to be replaced.
