Spotting Signs of a Storm Damaged Roof

As soon as the storm has subsided, our professionals at Ridge Valley Exteriors will visit your property and inspect the damage that occurred to your roofing system. 

 We will offer you emergency storm damage services immediately to prevent any further damage. Our storm damage specialists will handle all your roofing repairs and insurance claims promptly and efficiently. 

We will perform the following steps to determine the extent of your roof storm damage from wind, hail, or a broken tree. After assessing the damage, we will take the necessary steps to stop and repair the damage immediately.

1. Roof vents caps — By simply inspecting the roof vent caps, our experts can determine if your roofing damage is caused by falling tree limbs or hailstones. In general, dents do not hinder the proper functioning of roof vent caps but damaged or dented roof vent caps usually indicate that your roof got strut by a weather hazard. 

2. Downspouts — Professionals will check your downspouts for the presence of any shingle granules. While some level of granule loss is common especially when the roof is brand new, a significant amount of loss is an indication that your roof has been seriously damaged by the weather elements.

3. Shingles — Storm damage to your roofing shingles can vary greatly depending on several factors. In case, the damage to the roofing shingles follows a pattern, then storm damage is not likely the cause. Hail damage, on the other hand, is random. It bruises your roofing shingles that you can feel by touch. Besides surface bruises, it can create holes in your shingles. 

Missing, lifting, or ceased shingles are a sign that your roof has sustained high wind damage. In such cases, you need to repair your shingles immediately to prevent any further damage or water infiltration. 

Tree damage to shingles can be detected quite easily, but it is complicated to fix. Depending on the impact, your roof’s plywood decking, structural support, or roof underlayment can be damaged. In this case, the roof should be tarped immediately until permanent repairs are completed.   

4. Leaks — If you’re experiencing roof leaks in your home after a wind storm or hailstorm, it is almost a certainty that your roof has been damaged by the storm. Most often, roof leaks do not show up right after the storm. That’s why it is critical to conduct a roofing inspection immediately after a storm to determine the extent of the damage.

How to Determine Roof Storm Damage? 

The impact of roof storm damage or hail damage to shingles depends on the precise weather conditions during the storm. For instance, if the hailstorm is accompanied by rains, the water will make the asphalt roof harder by cooling down the shingles. In this case, the harmful effects of hailstones can be much more severe as the rain-cooled roof is more likely to displace or lose granules. 

On the other hand, in absence of rain, hailstones may hit the hot, soft, or dry asphalt. If that happens, the granules will embed deeper into the roofing material. That’s how the conditions during a storm or other weather hazard can affect your roofing damage.
