After a storm, it’s crucial to check your roof for any possible damage. Here are five quick checks you can make to spot potential storm damage right away.

  1. Visual Inspection:

From the ground, use binoculars to look at your roof. Look for missing, curled, or damaged shingles, as well as any damage to your gutters, flashing, or chimney.

  1. Check Gutters and Downspouts:

Inspect your gutters and downspouts for excessive granule accumulation. Granules can be knocked loose from your shingles during a storm and end up in your gutters.

  1. Check Around the Property:

Look for shingle fragments or pieces of metal around your property. These can be ripped off your roof during a heavy storm.

  1. Check the Attic:

If possible, check your attic for signs of leaks. This could be wet spots on the floor, water stains on the walls, or a musty smell.

  1. Check Interior Ceilings and Walls:

Finally, inspect your ceilings and walls for any signs of water staining, bubbling paint, or discolouration. These are clear signs of water damage and could indicate a leak in your roof.

Remember, these are just quick checks you can make yourself. It’s always recommended to have a professional inspection after a storm to ensure all damage is identified and properly addressed.
