Shingles are designed to protect against the weather, but the wind, rain and hail that often accompany a storm can cause damage. It’s also important to remember that not all storm damage is obvious and that hidden damage can cause problems weeks or even months after a storm. To be sure you don’t have hidden damage, have your roof inspected by a contractor you can trust to provide an honest assessment.

High winds can tear and remove shingles, leaving the roof deck, underlayment or old shingles from a previous roof exposed to the elements.

Wind can also lift and curl shingles by breaking the seal that bonds them together, leaving your roof vulnerable to wind-driven rain.

Hail can leave dents or pockmarks in shingles, dislodging the protective granules that protect against rain and sun damage.
