Storm damage on your roof can manifest in ways that may not always be obvious. Here are eight surprising signs of storm damage that you might overlook.
- Indoor Paint Peeling:
Water leaks from roof damage can lead to peeling paint inside your home. If you notice unusual peeling or blistering of your interior paint, it may be a sign of a leaking roof.
- Unusually High Energy Bills:
If your energy bills have spiked suddenly after a storm, it might be due to damaged insulation caused by a leak in your roof.
- Dented Gutters or Downspouts:
Dents in your gutters or downspouts might not seem like a big deal, but they can indicate hail or wind damage that could have affected your roof as well.
- Door and Window Malfunction:
If your doors or windows suddenly start sticking or are difficult to open, it could mean that a leak in the roof has affected the home’s structure.
- A Spike in Pests:
An increase in pests, such as insects or small mammals, could be a sign of openings in your roof caused by storm damage.
- Sagging Ceiling or Walls:
Sagging ceilings or walls inside your home can indicate water damage from a leaky roof.
- A Musty or Moldy Smell:
This smell could be a sign of water damage or even mold growth due to a roof leak.
- Cracked or Decaying Shingles:
This might be more subtle than missing shingles, but if your shingles are cracked or decaying, it could be a sign of storm damage.
