WIND, HAIL & DEBRIS DAMAGE ON ROOF


Severe storms often bring high winds, flying debris, and pounding hail. These destructive forces of nature can severely damage or destroy your roof. During a heavy storm, your roof’s job is to absorb the force of the wind and shield your home from debris. As a result, it can really take a beating year after year as severe weather rolls through your neighborhood.


MISSING SHINGLES
Missing shingles can allow rainwater to access the unseen parts of the roof ultimately leading to leaks and water damage. Protect your home by checking your yard for loose pieces of shingle after high winds.

LEAKS
Leaks can occur after high winds because of objects that hit the roof during windstorms. You can check for leaks by going into the attic space and performing an inspection.
Signs your roof is leaking:

  • Moisture on the wood or beads of water
  • Dark colored wood
  • A hole in the roof

You may also see some signs of leaks that are from old damage that has already been repaired. If you are unsure there is damage, you can never be too cautious, contact the professionals at Clyde Nettles today.

HAIL DAMAGE
Hail damage can cause pitting and dents in your shingles that can lead to the deterioration of your shingles and/or leaks in your roof. Call our team of professionals for a thorough inspection to assess any hail damage after a storm.

COMMON SIGNS OF HAIL AND DEBRIS DAMAGE AFTER A STORM
After the storm has passed; you should visually inspect your roof as soon as possible. Even if you do not have any water damage inside the home, there can still be substantial damage to the roof due to the storm. You should look for:

  • Visible holes caused by falling limbs or flying debris
  • Dark spots on asphalt shingles, which may indicate damage from hail or missing shingles due to wind
  • Missing shingles
  • Tile, concrete, or slate shingles that appear to be cracked or broken
  • Dents in gutters, flashing, or vents, which may affect your roof’s ability to keep water out
  • Leaks in your roof
