Thunderstorms, tornadoes, hailstorms and hurricanes can tear shingles from your roof or cause more severe damage. After a storm you should always check for storm damage to your roof
• Inspect your attic for leaks or water damage. Also, if any water stains appear on your ceiling or walls, this is a sign that you have a leak and need repairs.
• Look for other signs of storm damage from the ground. Check for missing shingles, missing fascia, or damaged gutters. Also, assess the condition of your exhaust pipes, valleys, outer edges or angles of the roof.
• Some damage may be obvious, such as a tree falling on your roof. In this case, stay out of your home until a professional can determine whether any structural damage occurred. Call SERVPRO of Marine City/Romeo at (586) 336-7373 to assess any structural damage or repair work.
• If the storm produced hail, check for damage to your siding as well. Hail damage commonly comes in the forms of dimples, made by smaller chunks of hail that pound the outer layer of shingles.
• Stay safe!
