Roofs create an important barrier between the structure of your home and the elements. They also protect the physical items and furniture kept within your home. Roofs are made to withstand daily sunlight, wind, rain, and snow and offer protection for many years. In the event of heavy storming, including hurricanes, tornadoes, strong winds, hail, heavy rain, or thick snowfall, it is important that storm damaged roofs be inspected immediately. It is better to be overly cautious and to fix small repairs than to miss something small and have it result in more significant damage over time.
Here are some tips for recognizing storm damaged roofs following inclement weather.
- Check the insulation in your attic; wet spots could indicate roof damage.
- Inspect your walls and ceilings thoroughly, and be on the look out for pealing paint or unexplained leaking.
- Look to see if roof tiles are curling up on the corners or if pieces of roofing are missing.
- Also examine the gutters to see if there is any buildup of roofing debris.
