What is considered roof damage?
The roof is one of the most essential parts of your home. Not only does it protect all the interior, but it also reduces energy costs by providing insulation and blocking heat from escaping. Roof damage can lead to much larger problems if not addressed promptly. To keep your roof in good condition for as long as possible, you should be on the lookout for any signs of roof damage and make sure to take action if you suspect your roof is compromised.
Roof damage is something that occurs from external forces immediately causing damage vs. regular wear and tear that occurs over time as your roof ages. Wear and tear can still lead to necessary repairs or replacement but is less immediate than sustaining damage from a storm or high winds. Regular wear on your roof might look like faded color, dark spots or uneven shingles on your roof, or higher energy bills from deterioration.
Roof damage will look more like missing or cracked shingles, water leaks in your attic, or damaged flashing, granules in your gutters. Knowing the difference is very important, especially when it comes time to replace your roof. To get proper coverage from warranties or insurance claims, you will want to know how to tell a damaged roof from an aging roof.
