How to Spot Roof Damage After Strong Winds

Wind damage from strong thunderstorms or tornadoes can do a number on your home’s roof. In an average year, Colorado gets about 53 tornadoes—sometimes mild and other times disastrous—so you’ll want be prepared. Here, we’ll break down how to spot roof damage after experiencing strong winds and what to do next.

How Can Wind Damage Your Roof?

You might think wind can’t do much damage to something as tough as an asphalt roof, but you’d be mistaken. Strong winds from thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes can barrel through your neighborhood and leave behind a bit of destruction. Flying debris, tree limbs, and shards of glass can be carried by strong winds and make their way onto your roof.

Most roof damage, however, occurs when the wind peels up loose shingles. Exposed surfaces, then, can be subject to rain, sleet, hail, or other elements—and, in turn, can cause your home to experience water damage in the attic or upper rooms.

3 Ways to Spot Roof Damage After Strong Winds

1. Perform a visual outdoor inspection.

Once the wind event has passed, you’ll want to take a quick look outside. From the ground, check your roof for any debris or missing shingles. If you just see a small amount of damage, a roof repair may be all that’s needed. If more significant damage has taken place, you’ll want to call a professional for replacement. We kindly advise homeowners not to climb onto the roof themselves. If you are not a construction or roofing professional yourself, you might not know the correct safety measures to take to keep yourself out of harm’s way.

2. Check inside your attic.

As we mentioned before, serious roof damage from strong winds can result in the shingles being blown away and water seeping in. Serious water damage can be seen from the inside out. Head up to your attic or upper rooms—wherever is closest to the roof damage. Check for moisture marks, brown, yellow, or grey stains, and peeling paint on walls. Any of these signs would indicate a damaged or leaking roof.

3. Call in a professional restoration or roofing company.

Not sure what to look for? Call a professional roofing or restoration company to assess your situation. A professional will inspect your property and give you a better idea of what you’re dealing with—plus, you can avoid any personal injuries from climbing on the roof!
