Signs Your Roof Sustained Wind Damage

By Stacy Mellete

According to roofing experts, wind damage is one of the kinds of damage that you don’t want your roof to sustain. After all, not only will it leave your roof looking unsightly but it can also lead to leaks that can cause major issues for your home.

Unfortunately, not a lot of homeowners know how to spot wind damage, leaving them unattended until it’s too late.

In this article, Affordable Roofing Systems, the local roofing company, expert in roof repairs, reveal the signs that your roof has sustained wind damage.

In Your Gutters

When you’re looking for signs of wind damage on your roof, make sure to look in your gutters first. The strong winds can cause the roof granules to fall into your gutters, so finding an excessive amount means your roofing has deteriorated. 


Roof leaks are the easiest indicators of wind damage that you can see around your home. After all, water is entering your home in places where they shouldn’t be. To find the source of the leaks, inspect your attic or top floor for wet spots or pooling water. Once you have, call a storm damage restoration professional to have the damage repaired as soon as possible.

Damaged Shingles

Strong winds can cause major damage to the shingles itself so be sure to conduct a visual inspection of your roof once it’s safe to do so. If you spot any missing, curling or lifting shingles, it’s a clear sign that your roof sustained wind damage and should be fixed as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
