Summer is in full swing here in Lynchburg, and despite Covid-19, most of us are able to enjoy the warmer weather. However, with summer comes the intense thunderstorms that seem to come from nowhere. While most of the time these storms pass with few lasting effects, occasionally they leave their mark, to the frustration of many homeowners. If you’re concerned about the condition of your roof after an intense summer storm, read on for the top 3 things to check for!
The first step in checking your roof for storm damage is to check inside your attic or second story for any leaks or stains. Both of these scenarios indicate that water is seeping through your roof, and you’ll need a professional inspection by a roofing contractor to diagnose the problem and fix the issue before it becomes any worse.
The next step in checking yoru roof is to inspect the outside of your roof to see if there are any cracked or missing shingles. Cracks in your shingles, or shingles that are missing altogether open your roof up to water damage, as water can seep through these parts of your roof and cause issues all over your roof. When cracked or missing shingles are present, a professional inspection and repair is necessary as soon as possible in order to minimize the damage as much as possible.
The final step in checking your roof for summer storm damage is to inspect your gutters for any signs of damage after the storm. Missing, clogged, or dented gutters are a tell-tale sign that your roof needs some attention. Additionally, check for signs of puddles of pooled water at the base of your gutters and around the base of your home. All of these scenarios are signs that your gutters are not working properly, and need some attention from a professional contractor in order to be restored to their functioning condition.
If any of these signs of summer storm damage are present on your roof, a professional roofing inspection is in order.
