4 Signs You Need a Roofing Inspection After Extreme Weather

Owning a home comes with its fair share of challenges, many of which are out of our control. A damaged roof is grounds for a damaged home if not taken care of properly. You should get your roof inspected once a year, according to Zillow. Roofing inspections are also best practice after severe hail, snow, or wind. If you notice any of the following, it would be wise to consider calling a professional for a roofing inspection.

1. Damaged Shingles

Damaged shingles are relatively easy to spot, especially for the experts. Things like cracked, damaged, or missing shingles may be a sign that your roof is losing stability and may begin leaking soon. A roofing inspection after any kind of severe weather event can help you spot this type of damage early on and take measures to repair it.

2. Gutter Issues

If your gutters are damaged by extreme weather, then you need to identify this issue and replace them in a timely manner. Without proper gutters, your roof could sustain damage from rainwater and other debris. An inspection will ensure that your gutters are in good working condition and not damaging your roof or confirm that they need to be fixed.

3. Cosmetic Blemishes

Roof not looking so pretty? Besides not being aesthetically pleasing, dents and scratches can be signs of a bigger issue developing. Make sure you call for an inspection as soon as you notice something “off” about the appearance of your roof. It’s a safe call to make even if the issue turns out to be cosmetic and nothing more.

4. Moisture in the Upper Level of Your Home

If you go into your attic and find that there is an exorbitant amount of moisture or warped rafters, you can be sure that damage from the roof has begun to make its way into your home. Water stains on your walls or ceilings can also be a telltale sign that there is already damage that needs to be repaired.

Even just one of these problems may be a sign of a worsening issue. The damage can continue to quickly decline, so it’s important to act with urgency when it comes to your roof. If you’re worried about your roof, don’t hesitate to get an inspection. Contact our team at Roof Rescue today for more information.
