COMMON SIGNS OF A STORM DAMAGED ROOF
Dents Everywhere - If hail was involved in storm damage to your roof (which is most likely the case), the roof damage can be severe, depending on the size of the hail. Hail will leave dents everywhere. If your roof has shingles (mostly large residential complexes or single-family homes), these often show up as black marks on your roof. There is no pattern, either. You'll see dented gutters, downspouts, and window sills, as well as door frames and anything else that sticks out from your commercial or industrial building, such as antennas, TV dishes, or other ornamental work. Siding and even your parking lot could show signs of hail damage as well.
Metal roofs can show dents, but rubber roofing does tend to show less damage from a storm due to its pliability. That being said, if the storm is severe enough, there is always a chance of storm damage occurring. In the case of commercial, industrial, or multi-family residences, it's always safe to err on the side of caution and call United Projects for a free inspection just to be on the safe side, even if it was just a minor storm. We're always happy to help.
Cracks in Roofing Material - Cracks are often the result of hail damage to your roof. Shingles, clay, and tile roofs, which are popular here in New Mexico can all crack when hit with large-sized hail. Once cracks appear in your roofing material, it is considered severely compromised and should be replaced in order to avoid not only further damage to the roofing material surrounding the cracks, but also to your attic, insulation, and interior materials of your home or building.
Damaged Flashing and Fascia - Other parts of your commercial or industrial roof can show signs of storm damage as well, such as your roof's flashing. Flashing is the material (often metal) that is installed around objects that project out of your commercial roof, such as chimneys, air vents, air conditioning units, skylights, fans, and the like. The job of flashing is to ensure no water seeps in around these structures, causing interior water damage. Thus, you most definitely don't want these unsung heroes of your commercial or industrial roof damaged during a storm because the potential for roof leaks is high if so.
Fascia is a long board that runs along the edge of your roof, assuming you don't have a flat roof, and gives your home a nice, finished look. Soffits are another roofing component that hang beneath your roof's eave and usually assist in some way with ventilation. Both of these can sustain hail damage.
Roofing Debris Everywhere - Severe storms and wind will usually leave tell-tale signs that they have left their mark. Some of these include shingles around your commercial building, broken tree limbs, flower beds that look like they've been trampled, dented air conditioning units, scraped fencing, missing paint chips from your deck or wood patio, and damaged exterior lights. After a storm hits, United Projects recommends that you walk around your commercial or industrial building and look for these signs. If you see one or more, call United Projects, your local roofing company for a free roof inspection as soon as possible.
Water Leaks - You'll notice water leaks inside your building. With commercial buildings that tend to have flat roofs, pvc roofs, or membrane roofs, these leaks are fairly noticeable as they usually appear as a drip from your ceiling. With residential homes, leaks can go unnoticed if they are small and are absorbed by ventilation materials. This time frame can even be longer with large multi-family residential homes because of the various levels, roofing materials, and nooks and crannies that are often involved. Plus, roof leaks may go unnoticed or unreported as well.
If you notice water around your light fixtures, water stains in closets, on ceilings, on on the walls, or mold or mildew, you'll want to call your local commercial roofing company in New Mexico, United Projects, for an immediate free roofing inspection. These are common signs that water has penetrated your roof and that you'll need a roof repair or replacement service.
