Even in the summer, Texans can face some pretty serious storms. If your home was recently hit by mother nature, there’s a good chance that your roof’s integrity could be compromised.
Finding the red flags that you need a roof replacement is simple and doesn’t even require you to get up on your roof. After a storm, run through this quick checklist and get ready to call out roofing professionals if you find that your roof is out of order.
How’s The Exterior of Your Roof?
Trees and shrubbery often compliment the exterior of a home. However, if it’s been a minute since your arbors were last trimmed, your home’s exterior can take a beating in a storm, starting with your roof.
After the storm, check out your roof from the ground level. During observation, ask yourself these questions:
- Are there fallen branches on your roof?
- How big are they?
- Is there any clear physical damage to your roof?
If you see large branches on or embedded into your roof, reach out to a professional roofer to properly assess the damage.
Is There Debris on the Ground?
Sometimes you may not even have to look at the roof to realize that it’s got something wrong with it. All you really need to do is examine the ground directly below your roof. If you notice bits of shingles on the ground or flashing cluttering up your driveway, you have a roof repair on your hands.
Check Your Attic
The extent of your roofing damage can safely be assessed through the attic. If you get up there and find leaks or holes in your roof, getting the damage fixed as soon as possible is imperative.
Should the problem go ignored your roofing problems can lead to ceiling stains and leaks that make their way into the home.
Hire a Roofing Professional to Go Up on the Roof
Whatever you do, don’t attempt to get on top of the roof and try to solve the problem yourself. Especially after a storm, your roof can be a very dangerous place. Slips, falls, and serious injury are all possible results of a DIY attempt. Another negative possibility with a DIY job is doing it wrong and creating more problems in the long run.
