Roof Storm Damage: What You Need to Know

If you have ever sat through a terrible storm that involved crazy amounts of wind, or even hail, you know the havoc that it can wreak on your home or business. Wind can be strong enough to rip off shingles, gutters, and siding. Hail or even heavy rain can cause some major damage too considering we have seen hail as big as a softball before. If a storm happens and you need to determine if your roof or siding should be repaired or replaced, call a reputable local roofing company.

What to Look For

You should periodically check your roof and siding especially after a storm has come through the area. Look for missing shingles and siding, missing or damaged gutters, warped siding and shingles, and even lifting. While external damage can be seen, sometimes you notice a dramatic change in temperature indoors which can also be a sign of storm damage.

Unfortunately, most of these damages can only be seen when you are close, and sometimes not even then; so if you are uncomfortable with looking on your own, you can get a professional roof inspection instead. The roofing company can determine if you need a full replacement or you can simply do a repair.
