Roof Repair Key Information To Help You:
It’s no secret that hurricanes can cause a lot of roofing damage, and if you’re not properly prepared, you might find yourself confused and overwhelmed. In this email, we’ll talk about the different types of roofing damage that can occur during a hurricane, as well as the costs and time frames involved in repairing the roof. We here at Worthmann Roofing provide free estimates and financing options for your convenience.
What are the top five signs that you may need a roof repair?
1. Water is pouring through your home:
If you have water leaking from your roof through your home, it isn’t something to take lightly, or an issue to save for another day.
Roof leaks are serious and become more and more costly as time passes.
If roof leaks are left unresolved throughout stormy weather, or even worse- hurricane season, the price of repair skyrockets as the damage becomes more and more complex. The last thing you want as a homeowner is the liability of substantial roof damage left unchecked before heavy wind and rain.
2. You’re finding small pieces of shingles:
Finding granules on the ground or in your gutters indicate you need repairing. It may seem obvious, but with every shingle you see on the ground, you have one less on your roof protecting your home.
Even if you’re finding pieces of a shingle rather than a shingle in its entirety, it’s still advisable to contact a professional like Worthmann Roofing to inspect your roof and let you know if there’s more substantial damage that just isn’t yet visible.
It is also important to keep an eye on the color of your shingles.
Fading or greying will occur when it is time for a repair or replacement.
3. The eaves or gables are caving in (or have been damaged by a storm):
Let’s pause for a moment and hit on a brief bit of roofing vocabulary:
Eaves are the portion of the roof that hang over walls.
Gables are the triangular portion of the roof.
If either of these two roofing elements appear damaged or are caving in, even slightly, it’s time to call a professional to take a look.
Often times, if roof damage is caught early, repair is feasible rather than necessitating a full replacement.
If you see such damage, then it’s time for a repaired or new roof.
4. Rusted nails are visible near any skylight, vent, or air conditioning unit:
Rust in general is usually a sign that something needs inspection or repair, and in some instances, replacement.
If you notice rusty nails around your property, then it’s definitely time for a repair or replacement.
5. There are imprints from hail along the roof:
In the chance that hail was part of the storm, it’s definitely important to have a qualified roofer come out and evaluate possible damage.
Hail damage dents shingles in ways that is often hard to see unless you’re a professional on top of the roof. Hail damage compromises the integrity of the shingle and doesn’t optimize for full protection.
It’s a more economical to call for a free estimate than to leave the damage to be built upon by another storm.

I have been wondering if I needed a roof repair after a recent storm and this post really helped me in making the decision to get an estimate. Thanks!
Allison, thank you for your kind words!
I never took into account the fact that granules found on the ground or the gutters would mean that there is a need for repair when it comes to the roof. I should tell to my husband now that I found some pieces of those when I was removing the Halloween decoration before this month came. We might already need a roof repair service before the snow falls for our own safety as well as the property’s integrity.
