Roof Damage from Hail & Wind
It’s no secret that Indiana weather can bring damaging hail, tornado-force winds, and detrimental thunderstorms, wreaking havoc on your Indianapolis home. Not only can these environmental events damage the roof and other exterior structures, but they can also cause water intrusion, mold from excess moisture, and leaks from fallen trees.

Bruised shingles from pounding hail
Ripped shingles caused by heavy winds
Damaged shingles and decking from fallen trees

- Roof Age - Check the age of the roof and determine if it has reached its expected lifespan.
- Shingle Condition - Assess the condition of the shingles and check for signs of damage such as cracking, curling, or missing shingles.
- Flashing Integrity - Check the flashing around the roof’s edges, valleys, and chimneys to make sure it is secure and free of leaks.
- Roof Ventilation - Check the roof ventilation system to make sure it is functioning properly and there are no blockages.
- Gutters and Downspouts - Inspect the gutters and downspouts for clogs, leaks, and proper attachment to the roof.
