We all wish that keeping a sturdy and long-lasting roof were easy. But no such luck — even a properly installed and maintained roof system will sustain damage, especially if a storm is involved. Roof storm damage can lead to extensive repair or restoration work and, in more serious cases, even result in a premature roof replacement. You’ll want to keep a close eye on your roofing system for this reason. After all, the telltale signs of a storm-damaged roof are not always immediately obvious. A premier roofing and siding installation company in the area, Pro Quality Construction Inc., shares some of the easy-to-miss signs of roof storm damage to know about.
But First, a Quick Word on Roof Inspection Safety
There are risks involved with roof visual inspections after a major weather event. You’ll probably be eager to get up there and check out how much damage your roof has sustained. And given how your roof is probably one of your biggest investments, that’s understandable. Still, your personal safety should always come first. Make sure to avoid climbing up on the roof (which may still be slippery from the rain) to prevent slip and fall accidents. Instead, survey the damage from the ground or another safe vantage point using a pair of binoculars.
Does it appear that nothing is amiss? It still doesn’t mean that everything is fine with your roof. As we’ve mentioned before, some of the warning signs of roof storm damage can be hard to tell. To accurately determine the overall condition of the system, you’ll want to have it checked by one of the area’s leading roofers, Pro Quality Construction Inc. No matter how well hidden the damage, our professional team will find and deal with it promptly.
Every homeowner is familiar with roof leaks. They’re an annoyance, but they can also leave your home vulnerable to water damage if overlooked. You should never underestimate a roof leak — it’s an issue that can worsen rather quickly and result in expensive repairs. After a major rainstorm, make it a priority to check for possible roof leaks. Unlike other types of storm damage, the signs of water infiltration are visible from inside your home. Here’s what to look for:
- Growing moisture stains on the ceiling.
- Water streaks along interior walls.
- Visible presence of mold and mildew, which you’ll recognize by the discoloration on surface materials and the musty odor.
- Cracking, peeling and flaking paint, indicating trapped moisture behind the walls.
- Rot and discoloration in the roof trusses and decking — you’ll need to go into the attic to check.
- Multiple leaks inside your home whenever it rains.
If strong enough, wind can actually blow the shingles off your roof. But that doesn’t happen instantly. What occurs is that high winds can slip under the shingles and lift them up, making the material lose adhesion to the roof. Once the shingles have been loosened, they become easier to blow off during the next gust. If your roof is wind-damaged, call trusted roofers as soon as possible for the necessary inspection and repairs. Otherwise, rainwater will find its way into your roof and home, causing moisture damage as it moves.
Roof shingles that have suffered wind damage can be tricky to spot. You’ll need to look for folds, tears and creases on the roofing material. Check for shingles that are bent or flipped over, as well. If your roof surface appears raised or uneven instead of flat and seamless, it’s likely that the system has sustained wind damage.
