Walk Around Your Property

First and foremost, before you climb your rooftop, start by taking a lap around your property. Observing your property from eye level will allow you to spot visible damage from hail. Look for dents on your gutters, downspouts, siding, windowsills, and fences. Make sure you equally examine downspouts and gutter runs for possible damages from hail.

Blown off shingles

Inspect for Loose or Missing Shingles

Next, examine your roof. Take a close look at the existing shingles to check for any attached or blown-off pieces present. The impact of hailstones on asphalt shingles can leave them vulnerable to leaks and further damage. Leaving broken, dented, or cracked shingles to decay or shifting shingles with compromised parts behind can worsen the integrity and performance of your roof in the long run.

Document the Damage

It’s crucial to document the damages to your property with photographic evidence. Ensure you click close-ups and wide shots to capture every aspect. Take pictures from all angles of your home for a more comprehensive outlook. It’s always helpful to provide these photos to your insurance company when you file an insurance claim.

Schedule a Professional Inspection

While it’s essential to perform a walkthrough of your property and inspect for damages to your roof, it’s usually best to allow a professional roofing contractor to complete an official inspection. The idea is to understand the extent of the damage and whether the roof needs professional repairs or replacements.
