After an extreme weather event, you may notice cracks, holes or other types of damage to your roof caused by wind, hail or rain. Severe roof damage is easy to spot right after a storm, but other types of damage can be difficult to see from the ground. Often, a visual inspection is not enough to uncover all the damage your roof sustained during a storm. That is why you should always call professionals to inspect your roof after the skies clear in your area. 

Signs Of Hidden Storm Hail And Wind Damage

Typically, roofing contractors look for the following signs to detect hidden storm, wind or hail damage.

Wind Damage

Lifted Shingles

Strong winds create pressure along the roof’s corners and perimeters. Consistent exposure to wind can cause roof shingles to lift slightly at first, then eventually become loose enough to peel completely. Regular roof maintenance allows professionals to detect the telltale signs of wind damage and carry out repairs to prepare your roof for the next storm.

Wind Intensity

It’s likely that your roof suffered damage from the wind if various objects, such as poles and tree branches, were blown into your immediate environment. Excessive dust, debris and twigs on your roof could also indicate wind damage. Extreme wind conditions can cause visible holes in your roof and attic, and these will need to be immediately repaired by roof repair contractors.

Hail Damage


Hailstones can dent your roof and siding. Any dents on your patios, decks, air conditioning units and other outdoor surfaces could possibly be due to hail damage. Furthermore, look closely at the surfaces of your roof and siding and observe any cracks, splits and holes that may have formed during the storm.


Large hailstones may cause blisters, depending on their size. Usually, they will dislodge some asphalt shingles after denting them, allowing moisture to penetrate the material.

Storm Damage

Leaky Ceilings and Damp Attics

Heavy rain introduces fast-moving water, which could enlarge holes that may have already been existing on your roof and compromise your roof underlayment. After a storm, watch out for ceiling discoloration and damp attic as these are clear signs of water damage.
