Checking for storm damage on your roof is a very important part of being a homeowner.
A storm could damage your roof in many ways, but even if the damage is minor, it is important to spot it and address it as soon as possible. After all, inspecting your roof right after a storm has passed will allow you to get any necessary roof repairs for your Houston home right away, which will prevent the problem from getting worse and becoming more expensive to repair.
How do you inspect your roof for storm damage?
At Space City Roofing, the last thing we want is for you to get hurt while you are trying to look for storm damage on your roof. Rather than physically climbing on your roof, check it out safely from the ground with a pair of binoculars. Here are a few things you should look for when inspecting your roof:
- Small dents on your shingles
- Shingles that are damaged, off-center or missing altogether
- Discoloration, especially on the flat parts of your roof
- Parts missing on your chimney
In addition to doing a visual inspection of the outside of your roof, it’s also important to look for any signs of a roof leak on the inside of your home. If you notice any dampness on the floor or discoloration on the ceiling, you may have a roof leak.
Whether you’ve found storm damage on your roof or you would like us to inspect it for you, please don’t hesitate to give the experts at Space City Roofing a call.
