Common Roof Issues After A Hail or Windstorm

Hail on a shingle roof

If a storm rolled through your neighborhood in recent days and you believe it may have done damage to your home, it is important to inspect it as soon as possible.

While it is always suggested to have an experienced roofing company to your home to give it a professional inspection, there are certain things that you can see from ground level that may indicate your roof has been damaged by strong winds and hail.

Should you notice shingles are missing from your home’s roof or are strewn about your yard, fallen branches or trees have hit your homes roof, there are noticeable holes in the roof or anything in between, it is essential that you schedule an inspection as quickly as possible to have the problem areas properly repaired.

When left for too long, it can open your home up to further damage the next time there is a storm and can create greater repair fees down the line.

Missing shingles

If you walk out into your yard after a storm and notice shingles missing from your roof, it is time to give a roofing team a call.

This is typically the easiest way to tell that your roof has been damaged. If you’re having trouble telling if shingles are indeed missing, take a walk around your yard and check for missing shingles that may be laying in your lawn.

Damage from fallen branches

Since you’re already outside and looking at your roof, you might as well check for any fallen branches that may have landed on your roof. Be sure to see if these branches have damaged the exterior of the roof in any way or the roof’s accompanying gutters.

Whether you notice the branches on the roof itself or on the ground next to your home, it may be a good idea to have it inspected for damage.

Holes in your roof

If you can see holes in your roof from ground level, there is definitely a cause for concern. When strong winds and hail beat down on your home’s roof, they can leave their mark, and many times leave certain areas of the roof exposed to the elements.
