Do You Have Outdoor Evidence of Roof Damage?
The first thing you should do is take a walk around your home’s perimeter to inspect for pieces of shingles and visually take a look at the roof:
- Look for areas where shingle edges look slightly raised or abnormal, which tells you the seals may have possibly been broken.
- Specifically inspect for narrow lines near the edges of the shingle which can indicate they could have been flipped up and creased.
- Scratch marks are common from wind damage across the roof field where wind-borne debris has been carried across the roof.
- Obvious damages soffit vents and ridges.
- Chimney flashing could be cracked or gaping.
- Torn, curled, or raised shingles along the roof edges are another sign of high-velocity wind damage.
- Deposits of debris such as tree branches, foreign objects, or broken glass in the gutters or on the roof.
