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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
