Of course, it’s easy to know you have storm damage when part of your roof or strips of shingles are ripped away. However, we are fortunate that we rarely get weather events that do such damage in the Winston-Salem area. That makes identifying storm damage difficult for most home owners. That’s why if you even think that you have damage to your roof, siding or elsewhere on your home, you need the help of storm damage experts.

Why Storm Damage Isn’t Always Easy to Spot

The most common storms in the Triad sees that damage roofs are wind and hail. One big misconception is that it takes large hail to damage your roof. Virtually any size hail can leave damage behind. However, it takes a fairly significant size hailstone to make a dent big enough to spot by the average homeowner. As for wind, we don’t need hurricane strength winds or high-speed sustained winds. Just one gust can blow shingles up leading to damage. Because of gravity, they often lay back down and homeowners are then unaware of the damage. Rarely is that something easily seen from the ground level even by storm damage experts.

Common Signs of Storm Damage

We’ve already mentioned missing shingles and dented shingles, however, they’re not the only signs of storm damage. Other common signs of storm damage include:

  • Dented gutters
  • Misaligned or crooked looking shingles
  • Loose or missing siding
  • Dented gutters
  • Shingles that no longer appear affixed to your roof or lying flat on the roof
  • Water under your baseboards or around your fireplace

Rarely is water in your home the first sign of storm damage. It usually takes some time before there is a roof leak that leads to water in your home.
