Identify the damage

Loose or Missing Shingles
Loose or missing shingles are one of the easiest ways to find out if your roof has wind damage. This causes other shingles to come loose, water damage, and structural damage.
Damaged Soffit or Fascia
Like shingles, soffit and fascia keep water away from the roof, reducing the chances of a leak. Wind can cause cracks, bent areas, or entirely blow off loose fascia.
Curling or Peeling Shingles
Curling shingles have turned up edges, making them look concave. The edge of a roof is its pressure point, making it likely to sustain wind damage.
Granule Loss
Granules will be blown away by intense winds as well as hail. The best way to check for granule loss is in your gutters.
Indoor Leaks
Indoor leaks aren’t always the obvious drip in the bucket. Leaks can cause ceiling discoloration, wet spots, and peeling paint.
