It’s a well-known fact that your roofing system is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Without it, your home will be vulnerable to leaks, pest infestation and even structural damage. Therefore, you’ll want your roof to remain intact for as long as possible. For you to accomplish this, experts say that you need to know the signs that your roof is facing problems, such as wind damage.
These signs include:
According to experts, leaks are one of the signs that indicate your roof has sustained wind damage at some point in its lifespan. In fact, it’s the easiest indicator to spot because water is coming into your home. With that in mind, if you begin to notice leaks around several areas of your home, it’s best that you call a professional to help you repair or replace the roof to prevent further leaks from occurring.
Granules in the Gutters
On the other hand, if there aren’t any leaks around your home, but you still want to check if your roof has sustained wind damage, consider checking your gutters. If you spot any shingle granules in your home’s gutter system, it’s possible that a combination of strong winds and heavy rains have washed away the granules from your roof and into your gutters. As excessive granule loss can significantly reduce your roofing system’s lifespan, it’s highly recommended that you call an expert roofing company to help you replace your damaged shingles as soon as possible once it’s clear your roof is suffering from shingle granule loss.
Finally, if you notice that you have curling, lifting or missing shingles, call a professional to help you repair or replace your roof immediately as these are clear indicators that your roof has sustained wind damage.
