Roof storm damage in Georgia can range in severity. In order to ensure your roof is ready for the next hit, be on the look-out for these ailments in your roof.

Water Damage

This can be spotted in your ceiling or even in your attic. Areas of water-stained spots may indicate there is a leak in your roof.

Shingle Deterioration

Hail and strong rain can begin to wear down the strength of your shingles. Damaged or missing shingles is frequently encountered in North Georgia. If there are granules rolling off of your roof along with  evident dents, these shingles are ready to be repaired. Moisture in the shingle can cause inadequate attic ventilation. When shingles are curling and buckling and refuse to reseal, it may be time for a full roof replacement. Remember, a lot of the issues with your current roof may point back to improper installation.
