Have storm damage?
Face it, a Cincinnati roof faces strange weather! We have tormenting heat one day, torrential rains the next, and wind and hail the day after that. Not to mention that UV rays from our hot sun breaks down the metallic granules on the shingles which retards their water resistance, and then they end up in your yard.
When the Ohio Valley gets the occasional hail storm, your asphalt roof can form bruises, or dark looking spots where the granules have been knocked away. You may also find holes, missing shingles and cracks in the roofing system. After high winds or a tornado homeowners might see whole sections of shingles that have been torn off or split seams.
If these are not repaired right away, water leaks might occur, which can lead to mold formation and wood rot. These can eat away at the structural integrity of your home, which in the end could lead to a roof collapse.
If you have a tree fall on your Cincinnati Roof, ask for an inspection for structural damage right away.
No matter the type of roof system that you have (metal, copper, wood, slate, or shingle) after a major storm you should have your roof inspected for hidden damage.
Some signs to look for that will signal storm damage:
- Missing shingles or other roofing materials
- Dark spots or dented asphalt shingles
- Cracked or broken tile, concrete or slate shingles
- Dents on gutters, flashing, or vents
- Water damage or leaks inside the property
- Check the gutters or downspouts for metallic granules
