Did a strong storm pass through your neighborhood recently? If so, you need to check your roof for signs of damage. While some types of damage are obvious—like a tree that crashed through your roof—other types of damage would likely go undetected by the untrained eye. In today’s post, A-TEX Roofing and Remodeling, emergency roof repair services expert, explains what to look for when inspecting your roof for storm damage:
- Granules Collecting in Your Gutters: Heavy rains can wash away the protective granules in your asphalt shingles, particularly if you have an old roof. Granule shedding is a sign of a roof’s age, and excessive granules in your gutters after a storm can indicate that you need to start planning a roof replacement. Without granules, your asphalt shingles can’t adequately protect your home, so you need to call us for an immediate inspection.
- Missing Shingles: If you spot many missing shingles on your roof, you need to consider starting your roof insurance claim process as soon as possible. Missing shingles expose your roofing system’s underlayment, making it vulnerable to rain. Strong rains can cause the underlayment to deteriorate, which can lead to roof leaks and costly water damage. You need to call us, so we can start assisting you with the insurance claim process and handling repairs.
- Dented Shingles: During a storm, tree branches and debris can fall on your roof and dent, bruise or even crack your shingles. This damage leaves your roof more vulnerable to moisture because rain can seep through the gaps and cracks. Left unattended, this can lead to chronic roof leaks. Fortunately, we can replace your damaged shingles and repair any leaks that may have formed during the storm.
