Severe Weather Leaves Major Storm Damage in Dayton Ohio

Did the Recent Dayton, Ohio Weather Cause Storm Damage to Your Roof?

The severe thunderstorms faced last month have left many with major storm damage in Dayton, Ohio. Spectrum News 1 confirmed that 6 tornados raked through Ohio, damaging commercial buildings, farms and residences throughout the area. Even if a tornado did not touch down on your property, Spectrum News 1 reported that straight-line winds caused additional damage in central and southern Ohio. 

Powerful storms can cause a lot of damage! Thankfully, local roofing contractors are prepared to jump in and help property owners with emergency repairs. Even if your property is outside of the main destruction of a tornado, high winds and hail can still leave major damage. Strong storms can pack quite the punch, so we recommend surveying your property for potential damage. 

Checking your property for storm damage

Your best bet to ensure your property did not sustain serious damage is to get in touch with a roofing contractor. A professional will be able to accurately assess damage. While not all storm damage is visible to the untrained eye, we recommend surveying your property for common signs of storm damage. 

  1. Missing or damaged shingles
    High winds can result in shingles tearing off your roof, especially if they were already cracked or damaged. Check your roof for peeling shingles and look for any pieces of roofing material scattered around your property.
  2. Granule debris
    Excessive granule loss is a sign that your roof has been compromised. If you notice granule debris scattered around your lawn, get in touch with a roofing contractor for an inspection.
  3. Damaged gutters
    Gutters and flashing may take a beating during a major storm. Check your property for signs of damage done to your gutters, downspouts, or flashing. 
  4. Leaks inside your home
    A leak  inside the home is an obvious sign of damage. Walk around the rooms of your house to check for leaks. We also recommend heading up to the attic to check for damp walls, ceilings, and insulation.
  5. Water spots on ceilings
    Stains on ceilings are one of the more common signs that you are experiencing water damage. If you’ve noticed water spots on your ceilings after the severe weather last month, give JW Roofing a call.

If you notice any of the signs above, get in touch with a professional roofing contractor right away. At JW Roofing, we have decades of experience in storm restoration and consider ourselves experts in storm damage repair.
