    Roofs are solid elements designed to withstand the elements and provide the indoor comfort people need. However, they get old too, become more fragile and can be damaged by severe phenomena like strong winds, hail or significant snow accumulations.

    Storm damage on your roof is not always visible, because it may take a while for water to infiltrate in the living space or create indirect damage (e.g. mold) that affect your comfort and make you aware that there might be a problem with your roof. In order to sport storm damage before it causes bigger problems, you will have to be proactive and schedule regular roof inspections and maintenance.

    In between inspections performed by professional roofers, you can also keep an eye on your roof (you must not necessarily climb it to do this!) and look for signs that may indicate storm damage.

    Obvious wind damage generally consists of missing shingles. However, other areas of the roof might also be affected by strong winds, leaving the roof vulnerable: flashing, gutters, downspouts…

    On the other hand, hail damage looks quite different on different roof materials. You may be able to notice bruises on some types of shingles, but also round-shaped divots or round indents in wood or metal roofs.  For a thorough roof inspection look to a trusted and well know roofing company like  https://americancustomcontractors.com/ellicott-city-md/.
