It is common for roofs to suffer damage in hail storms or strong wind. It is important to keep your roof well maintained so it lasts for years without issue. Here are a few things you can do to quickly check up on the condition of the roof of your home after a storm hits.
Take a walk around the perimeter of your home to check the roof for any obvious debris including tree branches or trash that may have blown onto the roof. If you have asphalt shingles, check the ground around your home and the gutters for small granules that typically coat the shingles. Finding many these small particles is an indication of wear and tear on the shingles. It is recommended you have these worn out shingles replaced to prevent leaks.
After checking for debris, check for noticeable signs of damage to the shingles. Hail and debris can cause tears and holes in shingles that can cause leaks if not repaired quickly. Even if the damage seems minimal, having repairs done will prevent the damage from spreading to the structure of the roof and the interior of your home.
