Roof Experts wants you to have all the information you need. Whether you’ve been home or away, your roof could be getting the brunt of foul weather without you knowing it. Let’s take a peek at what some common weather damage looks like.



1.Wind-Damaged Shingles

The above photo shows very obvious wind damage, but there are other things to look out for. Even if you can’t see missing shingles, keep an eye out for shifted shingles. Shingles that suddenly look crooked may be lifted in some places, allowing for water and debris to damage your home.

2. Water Damage

Water damage is sometimes visible on the inside of your home in the form of leaks. Don’t wait until then! Here are some visible signs of water damage before it shows up inside. Black streaks on your roof aren’t necessarily indicative of damage. However, your asphalt shingles are prone to algae growth with frequent rains. Over time, this algae growth can wear away the protective coating on your shingles, making them more susceptible to wind and hail damage.
