Powerful storms can affect your property, including your roof. The resulting damage can be significant and extensive, but it can also go unnoticed, especially if you aren’t keeping up with much-needed maintenance. As a homeowner, you must take the time to check your roof for signs of storm damage. StormROOF Systems, LLC shares three of them below.

1. Roof Leaks

There’s an increased chance that your roof will spring a leak after a storm passes through your area. Water stains and streaks may appear on your interior walls and ceilings. The attic may also become damp with moisture, causing mold and mildew to grow and multiply. As soon as you see any of these signs, be sure to have your local roofing company check on your roof to head off potential water damage.

2. Cracks and Dents on the Roof Surface

Regardless of their size and density, hailstones can damage your roof upon impact. Following a hailstorm, make sure to check your roof shingles for signs of cracks and dents. They may be small, but they can grow bigger over time, creating an entry point for moisture to seep through the underlayment and into your home. Hail hitting on your roof may also dislodge the shingles’ granule coating, leaving the base material exposed to the elements and further reducing the roof’s weather protection. Before these cracks and dents become costly problems, get in touch with your local roof repair contractor.

3. Loose or Missing Shingles

High winds can loosen or even tear off asphalt shingles from the roof. You’ll be able to determine this as soon as you see sections of the roof surface with missing shingles. Some may still be in place but have creases going in the direction where the strong winds blew. If your contractor recommended a roof replacement, make sure your new roofing material has high wind and impact resistance ratings.
