Roofs are designed essentially for shelter and protection. They are built with materials strong enough to withstand different weather elements. Even with a sturdy roof, your home can get damaged by wind or hail during a severe storm. Roof damage is not always the easiest to see; this is why you need a professional roofing company to help identify the roof damage and restore the privacy and comfort of your home. There are several signs of wind damage when inspecting your roof. Here are some of the steps to identify roof wind damage.
Find a Safe Place and Assess the Storm Damage
For safety, it is important to ensure the storm or wind has passed before attempting to inspect the exterior of your home. When it's safe to do so, take a walk around your house; go as far enough as you need to see the roof and assess the damage. You must be aware of potential hazards around your home or roof. If you see downed powerlines or electrical hazards, we recommend you stay away from those areas and call the emergency helpline.
Check for Entire Shingles or Spots of Granules Missing From Your Roof
Strong winds are capable of ripping off the shingles of your roof. This is the most common way to determine if your roof has been damaged by wind. You need to call a roofing contractor when you notice shingles in your yard or around your home. Our roofing experts will inspect your roof for gaps or exposure and provide roof repair or replacement services that include;
Check for Curly Roof Edges Caused By Peeling Shingles
Roof edges and other pressure points on the roof are susceptible to wind damage. These damages will appear in curled, buckled, dented, or cracked shingles. During a roof inspection, professionals check for these damages and peel off the damaged shingles to prevent water damage.
Inspect Your Roof for Damaged Soffit and Fascia Board
Soffit and Fascia are parts of your building that keep water away from the roof, reducing the chances of leaks. There could be cracks or bent areas in the fascia, or worse, it could have been blown off. Damaged soffits or fascia need to be fixed immediately to prevent your home from opening to water damage.
Pay Attention to Leaks and Indoor Signs of Roof Damage
Homeowners often neglect to check the inside of their homes for signs of roof damage. This is a vital aspect of roof inspection, and you can easily tell by looking at your walls for wet spots, discoloration, or peeling paint.
