With spring in full bloom, we’ve already experienced the power of several thunderstorms rolling through Ohio. While most of us watched the drama unfolding outside indoors, our roofs had to take the full brunt of Mother Nature’s fury.
For the most part, when roofing materials are in good condition, they’re well able to withstand the stress of a major storm. Over time, however, natural wear and tear from the elements will weaken these materials and leave them susceptible to damaging hail, powerful gusts of wind and heavy rains. For this reason, it’s extremely important to have your roof checked out by an experienced roofing contractor like Muth & Company Roofing.
Common Signs of Storm Damage
Here are the most common types of damage you should look for after a particularly severe storm, or when a roof is aging or improperly maintained.
- Missing and displaced asphalt shingles
- Impact damage to shingles
- Stripped roofing
- Water leaks
- Lightning damage
- Damage or destruction caused by fallen trees or other debris
The Importance of Quick Action
After a severe storm involving hail and strong winds, it’s imperative to have your gutters, roof and siding inspected for damage by a professional. Storm damage is not always immediately obvious to the untrained eye, and without prompt roof repairs, the problems listed above can compromise your roof’s protective ability, opening up your home and all your belongings to the potential for costly water damage.
