How Do I Handle Wind Damage to My Roof?

What to do if your roof is damaged by the wind.

Wind Damage to My RoofSevere weather can cause damage to everything in its path, but sometimes, the damage isn’t easy to see. If you notice storm damage to other homes, your siding, or vehicles, it is always best to make sure that your roof was not affected as well.

The first thing you should do is inspect your roof, if possible. (You can do this with binoculars from the ground.) Be sure to look out for the following signs of damage:

  • Cracked or missing shingles
  • Dented flashing, vents, or gutters
  • Asphalt granules collected in gutters or missing from their shingles
  • Branches and debris collected on the roof

If you see damage, make sure to contact a professional for repairs right away. Over time, seemingly minor damage can lead to roof leaks, further deterioration of the shingles, and other problems. You should be especially cautious if you see branches or other debris on your roof. If that is the case, do not go onto the roof yourself. Always contact a professional.
