Assessing a Garage Door for Damage

Storms, hail showers and rain can sometimes cause a garage serious damage. While many garages are structurally able to withstand this weather, it is sometimes the case that they are not, and damage may of been caused after particularly violent weather fronts.

This post looks at some of the ways you can assess your garage after weather damage may or may not have been inflicted.

After the weather has struck, its important to check the roof of the garage. Look out for any any signs of light seeping through gaps in the ceiling as this is a sign that there is a hole. Also, if any water stains appear on your ceiling or walls, you likely need repairs or a roof replacement.

Look for signs of damage from the outside. Assess the condition of exhaust pipes, valleys, outer edges or angles where the garage meets the walls.
