Strong winds, flying debris and hail can do the most damage to the exterior of your home. Some of the most common issues can occur with your siding; some of these include cracking, chipping and breaking or even holes. If any of these issues affect to your siding, your home is no longer completely protected from the elements. That is why you should have any storm damage addressed by professionals in home exteriors as soon as possible. The damaged siding will need to be replaced in order to adequately protect your home against moisture and additional damage.

When it comes to your roof, winds from a storm can tear and remove shingles, leaving the roof underlayment or old shingles exposed to the elements. Wind can also lift and curl shingles by breaking the seal that bonds them together, leaving your roof vulnerable to rain and wind. Hail can also be a huge problem for home exteriors and especially roofs; leaving dents on shingles and dislodging the protective granules needed to shield them from sun and water damage.
