  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis



    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.

Signs That Your Roof Has Storm Damage

Bad weather is inevitable and so is a roof defect. This is proof that protecting your home by maintaining it effectively is a top priority. Roofs are designed to weather the elements, but during typhoons, your home may be damaged by different factors. Since it’s important to identify these defects quickly to save both time and money, here are specific signs that you can look for:

Signs That Your Roof Has Storm Damage

  1. Missing shingles and thin horizontal lines after wind damage. Look for cracks and dents and be keen whether granules have been worn off beneath the shingle. This could indicate that the shingle seal was broken and was flapping in the wind. Remember that missing shingles can cause leaks and other interior defects.

  2. Loose debris. Keep in mind that any loose debris you notice around your home could indicate something struck your roof during high winds. Clear debris away as soon as possible to minimize risk for further deficiencies and a costly roof repair.

  3. Attic concerns and moisture. To avoid leaks, check your attic for any signs of moisture penetration. Inundated surfaces and insulation may be required to be replaced to stop the development of dangerous mold or mildew.

  4. Clogged gutters and downspouts. Following a storm, gutters should be tidied out immediately. Water drains from a broken gutter directly down into the foot of the building. In time, this can erode the foundation and make the structure unsafe.

  5. Other collateral hail damage around the house. If you see dents on your mailbox, fence, cars, and other items in your yard, call a professional contractor to have your gutters and roof checked.
