Shingles are made to protect against weather, but wind, rain and hail that accompany a storm often cause damage. Remember that not all storm damage is obvious and hidden damage can cause problems after a storm. To be sure you don’t have damage, have your roof inspected by STA Enterprises, Inc..
Common Problems Caused by Storms
High winds can tear and remove shingles, leaving the roof deck, old shingles from the previous roof exposed.
Hail can leave dents in shingles, freeing the protective granules that defend against rain and sun damage.
Leaks and water marks in your attic and ceilings. Your roof may appear undamaged from the outside, wind and hail can cause leaking that will create issues later. Check ceilings lights for signs of water and inspect your attic closely.
Check gutters and roofing accessories. Your shingles may look undamaged, but dents in gutters and roof vents may point to overlooked roof damage. Also be sure to inspect windows for loose weatherstripping and torn screens.
