How to Tell If Your Roof Has Storm or Hail Damage

It’s summertime in the Midwest, and that means we will see plenty of severe storms that could bring hail and even more extreme weather. After the storm passes and it’s safe to go outside again, one of the first things you should look at is your roof. But if you cannot get on your roof for one reason or another, what are some red flags that you need to hire a roofing contractor for your Eagan home? Here are a few tips.

  • If it is safe to leave your home, walk around the perimeter. Keep your eyes on the ground and look for roofing materials like shingles, nails and other items. If you see even just a few, call a roofing contractor from Eastern Roofing to give your roof a closer inspection and to make any necessary repairs.
  • An obvious sign that your roof needs a roofing contractor is if any trees or tree limbs fell on your roof. Even if you are not noticing any leaks inside of your home, you need to get the tree limbs off of your roof as soon as possible so no further damage happens and so everyone remains safe.
  • Take a close look at your home’s gutters too. Do you see any granules collecting in your gutters or downspouts? Are your gutters or downspouts detached from your home? Do you see any noticeable dents or other problems with them? If you spot any problems, call a roofing contractor like us. We can come out and take a closer look and make any necessary repairs. That way, you know any water that gets on your roof will drain properly so you won’t have to worry about any roof leaks.
  • If you are comfortable and feel safe, get on a ladder and take a peek at your roof. Even if you can only see the edge of your roofing, you can still take a closer look to see if there has been any damage. The more information you can give your roofing contractor about the potential problems, the better.

Of course, if you are unsure if your roof is damaged or if you cannot spot any signs of damage but you still want it inspected, call us and we can send a roofing contractor out.
