How To Detect

Wind Roof Damage in Citronelle AL

Alabama, including the Citronelle AL area, is prone not only to the higher wind but to occasional natural disasters like hurricanes and tornados. We offer emergency storm service in Citronelle AL if needed, but let's discuss what you can do to check the state of your roof when it comes to wind damage.

Check Your Shingles, Even If you Have a Metal Roof

Regardless of the roofing material you used, chances are you will want to check your shingles. If the shingles are cracked or missing, you need to assess the percentage of your roof that was affected. If more than a third of your shingles are damaged or gone, consider a new roof.

If your roof is made of asphalt shingles, check for granules damage. When granules fall out of your shingles, the shingle still stands in place, but it becomes vulnerable to the elements. Check your gutters for granule buildup before hitting the roof.

We don't advise installing flat roofs in areas with higher rainfall, but if your roof is flat, check for tears and cracks. If you run into any of these signs, consider calling a roofing contractor for roofing repairs.

What to Look for When Checking Chimney, Gutters & Other Roof Parts

It's not all about the shingles. Checking the state of your flashing is also critical. Flashing is placed where your shingles connect with other parts of the roof, notably the chimney and the walls. Torn, buckled, or flat-out missing flashing leaves room for water and humidity to find their way into your attic first and the rest of your home later.

Another construction element to keep in check is the roof cement; watch out for crumbled and loose bits. When inspecting roof gutters, keep your eyes open for rust, dents, or rot. Finally, pay extra attention to roof chimneys and loose bricks.
