Not too long ago, powerful winds causing widespread road blockages and property damage hit northeast Ohio. This isn't new, but as a homeowner, the damage it can bring to your home's roofing is something you can't ignore.
West Side Roofing Co. discusses what you need to know about storm damage and your roofing.
Checking your roofing once a storm passes you by should be a routine, but the signs that your roof was damaged may not exactly be easy to spot. In fact, most storm damage symptoms aren't as obvious as a missing shingle or one that's lying on the ground. Our roofing contractors recommend a look at your home's interior spaces as well. What you need to watch out for are water stains on your attic or ceiling. These are signs of storm damage on your roof.
Storms and strong winds can damage more than just your shingles. For example, if you have any roof vents, flashings, or exhaust caps, inspect them as well. For these, check for any split seams or leaks. Leaks may take several days to appear after the storm, so be on the lookout. Make sure you look at your gutters as well since damaged gutters can affect your roofing, too.
As one of the leading roofing companies in Ohio, we couldn't stress enough the importance of hiring a professional to have a more in-depth look at your roofing. Sometimes, the storm damage isn't as obvious as noticeable leaks or missing shingles—the damage may actually be inside the roofing itself.
