As soon as the weather clears up after a storm, the first step to ensure your roof hasn’t sustained serious damage from a recent wind or hail storm is to schedule an appointment for an inspection with your local roofing company. Any storm can be problematic for roofs, but wind and hail storms are particularly tricky. The damage they cause can often go unnoticed without a thorough, professional check-up. What’s more, neglecting to repair damage caused by these weather conditions can often lead to bigger, more serious issues in the future.
Thankfully, there are steps you can take to minimize the problems caused by extreme wind and hail. Let our roofing experts at Glam Roofing & Contracting, LLC show you how to deal with these kinds of roofing issues to avoid further damage to your roof.
Assessing Wind Damage
While you wait for your roofer to inspect your roof, walk around your home and do a quick visual check of your shingles. Corners and edges are the most prone to wind-related damage, as these often experience the highest levels of pressure when there are strong winds. Keep an eye out for missing shingles as well as lifted tabs, which could indicate further damage to your roof.
Hail Storm Damage
High-impact hail can cause shingles to crack and break. Small signs of damage can be difficult to spot, however, so take a close look at your gutters and the channels that lead away from them. If you see any granulation, it may be a sign that your shingles have been damaged by hail impact. Schedule a proper inspection with your local roofing contractor immediately if this is the case.
Why Prompt Repairs Are Essential
You don’t necessarily have to ask for a full roof replacement estimate immediately after the storm passes, but it’s important to avoid delaying repairs as much as possible. If left unchecked, wind and hail damage on your roof can cause major problems both on the inside and the outside of your roof. Contact your roofing professional immediately if you suspect your roof has been damaged by a recent storm.
