Types of Roof Storm Damage

Types of Roof Storm Damage

Wind: High winds from tornadoes, hurricanes, or gale-force winds can cause visible damage to your roof. Strong winds can remove or tear shingles, exposing the underlayment, roof deck, or waterproofing material to the elements.

Hail: Hailstones from hailstorms can leave dents or pockmarks in shingles and knock shingle granules loose, compromising your roof’s protection against rain and sun damage.

Standing Water: Improper drainage or clogged gutters can lead to standing water on your roof, potentially penetrating the underlayment or the roof deck.

Debris: Severe storms can leave debris, including small branches to larger tree limbs, on your roof, causing dents or impacting the surface of the shingle, leaving the area vulnerable to moisture intrusion.

Roof Storm Damage Checklist

Schedule a Roof Inspection

The first step is to contact a trusted and professional roofing contractor to schedule an inspection and help you with damage assessment. Many contractors offer free inspections, and they will know how to safely look for roof damage.

Check Your Roof, Gutters, Vents, and Windows

Visually assess your roof by walking around the perimeter of your house, looking for any visible storm damage and taking note of dented, torn, curled, or missing shingles. Check your gutters, vents, and windows for any damage and inspect your home’s exterior for fallen tree limbs or damage to lawn furniture.

Inspect Your Attic and Ceilings

Check for leaks and water spots in your attic and ceilings, as wind and hail can cause unseen leaks that may lead to bigger problems later. Use a flashlight to see in dark areas.
