Signs of Roof Damage
If you hope to protect your property by preventing roof damage, it’s crucial that you learn to recognize the red flags that signal potential problems. There are several indicators:
Roof leaks or water stains after heavy storms.
Shingles that are missing, curled, torn or discolored from high winds.
Wear and tear around vents and other roof structures due to age.
Shingle granules in the gutters from rain and weather.
Regular maintenance is key in roof damage prevention. Routinely inspect your roof from the ground for signs of damage. Especially after inclimate weather and storms. Look for missing or damaged shingles, holes and leaks, and sagging. If you suspect that your roof needs a shingle repair or other solution, call a roofer immediately.
