Storms are one of the scariest phenomena for homeowners. Some come without damage, but powerful storms can cause unforeseeable damage to your house, from your roof to the whole building. The roof is one of the most affected parts of the house after most storms. Parts of the room are damaged, or the whole roof is usually blown away. If your roof remains intact, there are areas you should check to make sure that it is okay. There are some areas that, if they are damaged, could be detrimental to the quality of the house. Here are some of the critical areas to check out.

Check Out Protruding Roof Parts

First, you should check out the protruding parts of your roof, such as chimneys and skylights. These parts are usually well covered and sealed to avoid water leaks. If they are damaged, water leaks may invade the house. Any damage should be taken care of immediately.

Inspect the Shingles

The shingles are one of the first parts of the roof to be damaged after a storm. They are there to protect the other parts of the roof. To check whether the shingles are damaged inspects for granulate losses, any curling or cracks that might have formed on the shingles. You should always inspect your roof from the ground to avoid any injuries.

Check Out The Vents

The roof vents are significant and should be checked. They could affect the air quality in the house as they may draw in air from outside into your indoors. Some owners think these damages are superficial, but they tend to affect the inner parts.

Look at The Gutters

The gutter’s primary work is to ensure that rainwater is diverted away from the roof. A damaged gutter will have water getting into the house or clogging and leaking into the roof, which is detrimental. Ensure your gutters are not damaged and are not clogged by debris.

Examine the Attic and the Ceiling

The attic is usually overlooked as it is not on the exterior, but it is essential to check it out. Storms can cause leaks that may leak water. Water leaking into the attic may cause mold to grow, increase power bills, and damage the roof structure. 


As we have seen, the key areas to check on a roof include the protruding parts, the shingles, vents, gutters, and the attic. In case of any issues, consult a professional technician from Blue Collar Roofers in Ormsby Drive, Syracuse, NY. You can also visit our website for more issues.

Customer Reviews
What our customers are saying

Our experience was fantastic. They worked quickly and efficiently and got the work done in a single day and the roof looks amazing. What we appreciated was the transparency of the work that they were doing and any obstacles that came up they immediately communicated with us. Also when they cleaned up the work site it appeared as if they were never there at all. Exceptional work!

I had some roof damage from high winds and I was worried about the potential for more damage due to rain/snow. I called Blue Collar Roofers and spoke with Alex. Alex was great to work with over the phone and sent someone out to assess my roof the very same day. Thankfully I was able to get my roof repaired quickly and the work looks great! Dave did wonderful work! Thank you so much for your great service!
