When a storm passes through your area, you would think that the signs it leaves on your roof would be very obvious, but that’s not always the case. Damage from a storm, whatever kind it is, can be very subtle and might need the keen eye of an experienced roofer. With that said, here are three easy-to-miss signs of storm damage that might go unnoticed if you don’t know what to look for.
After a storm with high winds, you’ll likely see a good amount of blown and fallen debris, especially if you live in a wooded area. When it’s safe to go outside, walk around your property and look for any fallen tree branches. If you find a lot of debris scattered around, it’s a pretty safe bet that some also landed on your roof. If you see heavier objects such as lawn furniture and construction materials scattered around, you can get a good sense of just how strong the wind was.
If a recent hailstorm was particularly destructive, it will be easy to tell if there’s damage as you will likely have dents on your siding, gutters and roof. However, hailstorms are not always so severe. What you can do to make sure is check to see if there are any granules that have been knocked loose in your gutters.
A lot of times, hail damage can be difficult to spot on an asphalt shingle roof due to its texture and color. This is why you should check the flashing. Seeing as flashing is made of thin pieces of metal, damage to them will be more obvious.
