There are multiple major signs that your roof may have sustained storm damage that you may be able to spot from your front or backyard. Always check for any missing shingles, lifted shingles, and creased or broken asphalt roofing shingles could most certainly be the result of being within a severe storm or tornado's pathway, which In some cases can have wind gusts anywhere from approx. 60-120MPH. After a little time, the asphalt shingle granules will start wearing off, making the roofing systems shingles nearly 80% less effective in doing their job of protecting the roof from any water pathways, potentially stopping the encapsulation away from stopping any penetrations and putting everything underneath it in a state of jeopardy.
Lastly, it is always good form to every few months make sure the property's gutters are cleaned as regularly as possible, heavy rains can’t flow through either the 5-inch or 6-inch gutters, then down into the downspouts as intended, so they will either back up under the shingle, causing leaks that will need metal or shingle roof repair, or overflow and saturate the ground around the perimeter of your home's foundation, causing other very serious exterior restoration problems such as erosion.
