Storm season is upon us, and recent outbreaks have left many homes in Dallas and Rockwall, TX with minor to severe roof damage. Even if your home and roof look unharmed, it is important to inspect and repair your roof as soon as possible after a storm. Watch for these signs of roof damage during storm season.

Debris and Property Damage
After the storm has cleared and it is safe, walk outside and check your property for signs of damage. If you see split tree limbs, hail dents on your car, fallen fences, or wind-torn shrubs, there is a good chance that you roof took some damage. Because it is usually the highest point of your property and covers a large surface area, there are more chances for your roof to sustain damage than others parts of your home. If you see damage on the ground, it’s a good idea to check the roof.

Missing, Peeling, or Cracked Roofing Materials
Before pulling out the ladder, walk around the perimeter of your home and look for any signs of roof damage. Some problems like missing shingles or a downed tree are obvious, but other issues may be difficult to spot. Make sure the forecast is clear and there is no lightning before climbing up on your roof for a closer look. Check for cracks, dents, asphalt granules in the gutters, and soft or spongy areas. You can also check your attic for signs of a leak.

Hail Damage
Hail damage can be especially difficult to identify, particularly to the untrained eye. However, there are some signs of roof damage keep in mind. First, hail damage will appear differently on different roofing materials. On asphalt shingles, you might see random damage, dents, bald or shiny spots where the granules have worn away, or excessive granules in your gutters. Metal and tile roofs have excellent hail resistance and rarely take damage, but if you see dents or cracks, call a professional.
