For many homeowners, having no leakage means no storm damage. Unfortunately, diagnosing damage is more complicated than that. In fact, storms can wreak havoc on your home without causing leaks. The absence of serious water infiltration doesn’t necessarily indicate your roof, siding and other exterior features are still in one piece. If you just look for leakage, you might fall into a false sense of security that your home is in good shape when it’s not.
To avoiding missing storm damage, Timberline Roofing and Contracting talks about its most common forms in today’s post:
If your roof looks like a big checkerboard from the ground after a ravaging storm, there’s a good chance strong winds have blown them off. The missing shingles should be everywhere. Any pieces displaced from your roof must be replaced with new ones right away. The longer you wait, the longer your roof will be vulnerable to the elements.
Gutters and downspouts usually get bent out of shape when taking a beating from hailstones. Worse, they might develop cracks, which will compromise their function. Regardless of your gutter system’s age, look for a company specializing in storm damage services to replace the affected ones. Deal with it urgently because faulty gutters and downspouts can flood your basement, ruin your landscaping and more.
Dimpled Siding Panels
If your siding doesn’t resist impact well, it might develop damage after a hail storm too. But even without hail, visually inspect every siding panel when the inclement weather subsides to look for red flags. Call in professionals right away to fix the problem before the next storm arrives.
