Updated: 6 days ago

After a storm, it's crucial to inspect your home's structure to identify any damage that could impact its safety and stability. This guide will help you spot the most common signs of storm damage to your roof, siding, garage structures, and interior spaces. Knowing what to look for can help you act quickly to prevent further damage and maintain your home's structural integrity.

Roof Damage

Your roof is one of the most critical components of your home's structure. After a storm, inspect your roof for signs of damage such as missing or damaged shingles. High winds, hail, or flying debris can dislodge or damage shingles, causing them to crack or curl. Also, check for roof leaks, as indicated by water stains on ceilings or walls. If you see sagging sections, damaged rafters, or exposed roof decking, this indicates significant storm damage requiring professional attention.

Siding Damage

Siding protects your home from the elements, but it can also suffer storm damage. After a storm, look for cracked or dented siding, which can be caused by wind, hail, or debris. Siding can even detach from the wall. Another key sign of damage is water penetration; if water has seeped behind the siding, it can cause internal issues such as mold or mildew.

Garage Structure Damage

Garages and other external structures are vulnerable to storm damage. Check garage doors for cracks, dents, or warping, which can result from wind or debris impact. Look at the structural framework of the garage to ensure it hasn't shifted or developed cracks in the walls or foundation.

Interior Damage

Storms can cause significant internal damage, especially if there's a breach in the roof or siding. After a storm, check for water stains on ceilings or walls, which indicate leaks or water infiltration. Peeling paint or wallpaper can also point to moisture problems. Additionally, look for mold or mildew in attics, basements, and other interior spaces; these are signs of moisture-related issues that might require professional remediation.

What to Do If You Find Storm Damage
