What Kind of Roof Storm Damage Do You Have?

Different types of storms can cause different levels of damage to your roof. Here are three of the most common forms of roof storm damage.

Hail Damage
The defining feature of hail damage is dents or dings all across your roof in a random pattern. The dents can range in size from small to very large, depending on the size of the hail stones. Other signs that your roof has been damaged by hail include cracked shingles or asphalt shingle granules built up in your gutters.

Wind Damage
Strong winds can peel the roofing materials right off your roof. Winds can also damage your chimney, causing it to crack or lean to one side. You may also experience damage to your home’s siding, which is caused by debris flying through the air.

Fallen Trees
The most significant roof storm damage is caused by a tree falling on your house. This is actually considered a roofing emergency, and it is recommended that you evacuate your home. Repairs for a fallen tree on your roof are extensive and may involve structural repair to the framing of the roof.
