If your Northern Virginia home has been hit by hail, high winds, or other severe weather, immediately contact a professional roofing company for an inspection. Even if there are no obvious leaks, your roof may have been weakened or suffered minor damage which can later lead to major problems. For many homes, a visual inspection can be performed by a homeowner by using binoculars or looking out windows. Climbing onto your roof can be dangerous, and isn't recommended for anyone except roofing professionals. Here are a few things you can check for yourself that may be warning signs of damage from hail or high winds.
- Damage to roof flashing. Roof flashing is a seal to keep moisture out of the joints on your roof. You can commonly see flashing around chimneys, cupolas, and vents. If the flashing seems to be coming loose, or appeared to be cracked or damaged, call a roofing contractor immediately.
- Leaks or dark spots on your ceiling. If there is any moisture or discoloration on your walls or ceiling, it may be a sign that water is leaking in through for roofing, siding, or flashing.
- Missing, cracked, or damaged shingles. This one may seem obvious, but shingle damage can be subtle. Look for any places where shingles look out of place, or pitted.
- Dampness in the rafters or insulation of your attic. If you can access your attic, check for signs of moisture. If water is entering your attic through your roof, call a roofing contractor immediately.
If your roof has seem severe weather, don’t hesitate to call a qualified contractor for an inspection. Damage or weakening of your roof can mean serious problems down the road. The sooner storm damage is caught, the better it is for you and your home.
