Usually, after a storm in your area, the first thing that you should do is check your roof for any possible damages. It doesn't matter whether you have water leaking inside your house or not, the damage might still be there. While it is better to climb the roof and see for yourself we recommend avoiding doing such, especially after the storm. You can try to see for the damage yourself from the ground level. Rain it's not alone a reason to cause any further damages. You can either look at the roof with binoculars or use a ladder to try to inspect it. If you add wind, hail, snow, or flying debris and then your roof might have taken some serious damage. If you cannot tell the roof damage yourself you can hire a company like ours to inspect it.
If your roof had shingles that were already cracked or coming off and last night you experienced strong wins chances are that they have tared apart. It doesn't matter whether the roof is new or old since during strong winds especially during a catastrophic event such as tornado the roof can only take so much damage until it gives up. You might tell that the roof is damaged straight from looking at your yard waste. If you go outside and you look at broken shingles on the ground then your roof is probably damaged and you need to hire a company to try to fix it.
Hail or snow that falls during thunderstorms can cause some serious damage to the roof especially when it's combined with strong winds. Hailstones are usually the ones that caused most of the damage since they can come to diameters as large as 1.75 inches. On impact, they can cause a whole on the roof and whatnot. One of the ways to tell if your roof has suffered snow or hail damage is to look for clogged gutters. Another way to look for broken gutters is water draining directly into the foot of the building. If this is the case then you need to call our company immediately because water can ruin the foundation and make your building unsafe.
Water damage on the roof is not always obvious but it doesn't mean that it's not there. Sometimes those shingles on your roof might appear completely normal and intact however there might be areas where water has started gathering during heavy rain. So it is worth it to check your chimneys, your van pipes, and other spots.
Your attic and the roof work together in a combined way to keep the house safe. You need to check the attic for any possible moisture signs such as mold or mildew that has gathered there. In such cases, this is a clear sign that there's something wrong with the roof either leakage or a possible sign of water gathering.
