You don’t need torrential rains or hail for a storm to damage your roof enough to warrant repairs, or at the very least, an inspection. High winds, hail and flying debris can cause enough damage to require roof repairs or even replacement. So, you must check the condition of your roof after heavy storms.
After a storm has passed, and it is safe to go outside, you should do a visual inspection (from the ground – AVOID GOING ON THE ROOF) to look for signs of roof damage such as:
Before you move anything inside or outside, take several photos and detailed notes of all damage.
Your safety and the safety of your family and neighbors are always the first priority, so watch for potential hazards that need immediate attention such as broken glass and sharp edges on damaged material, and cordon off dangerous areas.
If your home or commercial building has been damaged, notify your insurance agent and contact a professional and expert storm damage assessment company right away. Your insurance agent can help you determine if you need to file a claim, and a storm damage assessment will help you determine need repairs and if it is safe to reside in your home.
