Looking out for Storm Damage

If you’ve lived in Florida for any amount of time, then you know just how severe the weather can get, especially during the summer months. The frequent rains, hail, wind and even the occasional hurricane can really take a toll on your roof.

 

Whether you have a metal, tile, or asphalt shingle roof, being able to assess any damage that may have occurred during a storm is important to the health of your home. Common forms of storm damage include:

  • Missing or curled up shingles – High winds from thunderstorms or a hurricane can lift shingles away, leaving your home vulnerable to leaks
  • Bruises and dents – Hail often creates pockmarks or dents in shingles which can dislodge the granules that protect your roof against sun and rain damage. Metal roofs are also in danger of becoming dented up by hail, significantly shortening their lives.
  • Cracked or broken tiles – Though a less common occurrence, hail has the potential to damage roof tiles, causing leaks and other damage
  • Leaks – Roof damage can allow water intrusion into your home, causing costly structural damage and drywall rot.
