How do you know if your roof has been damaged by severe weather such as wind or hail? Until there is a leak, most property owners do not realize that their roof has been damaged by a storm. If your roof is over ten years old, the chances are very likely that it has undergone some weather related damages. Below are a few tips from MESSTX.com to help you determine if your roof has undergone some damages due to severe weather:
- Regularly examine the roof so that you can recognize when the condition has changed following a severe storm. This will enable you to prove and accurately document the damage when it happens and will also prevent a more costly leak.
- Take photographs of the condition of the roof in its normal wear state and after damage has occurred. This will prevent any debate concerning whether or not the roof was damaged due to severe weather. If an insurance claim is warranted, the photos will provide proof in support of your claim.
- Identify the damage. The three major signs of hail damage include bruising, cracking, and granules missing from the asphalt. If the rain gutters were clean before the storm and are filled with mineral granules afterward, there is strong evidence of roof wear and damage due to the hail. Wind alone can also damage a roof.
