If your home was hit by severe weather this winter, who knows what might be lurking up on your roof? Blisters, punctures, curling, or missing shingles… if left unrepaired the damage might come back to haunt you. If you have not yet scheduled a yearly roof inspection, now’s the time.
The only real way to know if your roof is safe from damage is to request a professional inspection. However, some warning signs can be seen from the ground level of your home.
If you see any of these warning signs, it could mean your roof is damaged.
Your roof is your home’s primary defense against the elements. When hail damages a roof, it weakens its ability to protect your home from water, wind, snow, etc. If left unrepaired, hail damage can lead to more costly problems like roof leaks.
Insurance companies understand how important a fully functional roofing system is, which is why hail storm damage is covered by most policies.
Waiting to get a proper inspection after a storm is never a good idea. Most insurance companies believe it is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain their homes and take steps to prevent leaks. Therefore, if you wait until your roof is leaking to make a claim, you could be footing the bill for all the major repairs.
