How to Check for Roof Damage After a Storm

Looking up from the ground you will want to look for some or all of the following signs your roof needs repairs after a storm.

  1. Check your yard for shingles: One of the most common signs of roof damage is shingles that have blown off. Missing shingles expose the wood roof beneath and need to be replaced asap.
  2. Examine roof accessories: Soffit, fascia, and trim are all part of a roof’s structure. Damage, dents or tears in these accessories also need to be fixed after a storm.
  3. Inspect your gutters for damage–downpipes especially need to stay secured or you could end up with roof water damage.
  4. Look for leaks Inside your home–if enough shingles can be dislodged during the stormwater could already be seeping in and this alone indicates you have a roofing issue.
