Assessing Roof Damage Due to Storm

Storms, whether they're hurricanes, tornadoes, or even just a typical thunderstorm, can cause significant storm damage roofing issues.

The straight-line burst of wind from a common storm can cause roof damage, along with the accompanying hail and potential debris.

While some roof damage is immediately obvious, such as massive holes or leaks, other damage might be more subtle, like granule loss from asphalt shingles or minor damage to the roof's edge tiles.

If your home recently withstood a storm (or even if it has been a while), here are a few steps you can take to assess storm damage to your roof.

Look For Any Signs Of Roof Damage Visible From The Ground

After a severe weather event, it's crucial to check for any visible signs of roof damage from the ground. Loose or missing shingles can indicate wind damage, especially if you find them around your property.

Metal flashing around chimneys should be intact, and vents, exhaust piping, or other roof protrusions should be free from obvious damage. These are common signs of storm damage that can compromise the integrity of your roofing materials.

If you can't see your roof or climb a ladder to inspect it, you can contact professional roofing companies for an inspection.

Check Inside For Any Signs Of Leaks

Water damage inside your home, especially in the attic, is a clear indicator of roof damage. Leaks are often the result of severe weather events compromising the roofing structure, leading to water spots and potential structural damage. Signs of water damage or dark spots on your ceiling can be an indicator of a roofing issue.

Check For Hail Damage

Hail storms, a type of severe storm, can be particularly damaging to roofs. Hail damage commonly results in dimples or dents in your shingles. It can also cause bits of roofing materials to break off, affecting the roof's protective layer. If you suspect hail damage, it's essential to contact roofing professionals for a roof inspection.

Be Safe

Safety should always be a priority. If you suspect damage, resist the urge to climb onto the roof, especially if conditions are wet or slippery. Instead, contact professional roofing contractors like TK Roofing for a detailed inspection. They have a team of roofing experts trained to identify all types of storm damage, from minor repairs to extensive damage.

Signs of Storm Damage

When it comes to storms, there are three main forces at work against your roof and home – wind, debris, and rain/hail. Here are a few signs of damage after a storm:

How Wind Can Impact Shingles and Flat Roofs

Strong storm winds are not the gentle breezes we enjoy on a sunny day. Strong winds can lift, tear, or even blow off shingles, leaving your home vulnerable to water damage and other types of storm damage. Wind damage can also affect flat roofs, causing perimeter metals to lift or crease, leading to leaks.

How Wind Can Impact Shingles

Wind can tear shingles, lift them, cause them to blow off your roof, and break shingle seals. Check for a leaking roof or significantly creased shingles.

How Wind Can Impact Flat Roofs

Look for perimeter metals lifted or creased, a complete or partial blow off, unattached insulation, and exposed fasteners. Again, a leaking roof is viable here.

Previous Next

Debris Damage

Nearby trees and electrical wires can become hazardous during storms. Falling tree limbs or other debris can cause visible damage to the roof deck, missing shingles, or even cracked shingles. Debris damage can also lead to moisture intrusion, which can further damage the interior of your home.

Examples of Debris Damage

Debris damage can include visual identification of debris on the roof deck, missing shingles, and cracked shingles. If a tree limb or other large object was blown onto your roof, it could be vulnerable to moisture intrusion.

Hail Damage

Hail can cause significant damage to your roof, from dents in metal roofing to cracks in shingles. Ignoring signs of hail damage can lead to more severe problems in the future, such as a complete roof replacement, voided manufacturer warranties, or premature roof system failure.

Common Signs of Hail Damage

Common signs of hail damage include dents in your metal roof, cracks and marks in the roof or siding, and loose shingle granules.

Long-term Impact of Hail Damage
