What can a storm do to your roof?
Storms can be incredibly damaging events for homes throughout the Western New York region, and one of the major flash points for damage is the roof.
Your roof is built to withstand the elements on a routine basis. But a storm is anything but routine. High winds, huge volumes of precipitation and falling debris can all cause serious damage to your roof.
After a storm, you should keep a look out for common forms of damage.
Water stains, for instance, can begin to form on your ceiling and are sometimes the first indication that your roof has been damaged and begun to leak. If they show up quickly, that means that the leak is probably pretty serious and you need to deal with it right away.
Shingles are also a telltale indicator of roof damage. If you notice missing or loose shingles, you've obviously got a problem. But even discoloration can be a sign of an issue, as it often indicates damage from hail or debris.
