Severe storms are serious business. These storms are typically at their most intense during the spring months and can cause a lot of damage to homes and businesses. Many times, unfortunately, this damage is caused by tornadoes, high winds, and heavy rains, and is easy to spot. Other times, however, storm damage can be relatively minor and difficult to spot on your roof, home, or business. Even minor damage should be dealt with as quickly as possible, so here are a few tips on what to look for following a storm.
Hail damage is a very common cause of storm damage in Oklahoma and can range from minor to severe. One way to tell minor damage has been done to your home is to check if your gutters are dinged. If your gutters are dinged and dented, it is likely that there is some hail damage on your roof as well.
Next, take a look at your roof. Hail damage can often look like small divots in your shingles. Hail damage can also knock granules off your shingles. Take a quick peek in your gutters to look for granules, as this may indicate hail damage. Worn-down shingles should be replaced as soon as possible. Bald shingles can easily be damaged by the sun and other elements and can shorten the life of your roof.
If you believe you have spotted storm damage on your roof, home, or business, call a professional to come to take a closer look.
