Storm Damage Repair
Storms can cause a lot of damage to your property, sometimes particularly your roof depending on the type of weather you experienced. Hail, strong winds, and consistent rain are some of the biggest culprits of storm damage affecting roofing. It’s vital to know what to do after a storm hits, and perhaps most importantly, who to contact.
Checking for Storm Damage
There are a few key things to look for after a storm if you suspect you have roof damage. Check for fallen or missing shingles in the roofing, metal flashing near chimneys, and your vents/piping for any obvious signs of storm-related damage. Leaking inside your home, particularly the attic, are sure ways to know that your roof has been damaged by a storm. This might not happen right away, depending on the total duration/severity of the storm, so keep an eye on leaks or water spots. Dents and holes can appear in siding and shingles after heavy hail storms, so pay attention to holes or rips as they will need fixing before any further damage occurs.
Prevent Shingles Blowing Away
If your area is prone to big storms or even just heavy winds, it’s important to make sure your shingles stay intact. Maintaining strong shingles and replacing any that you notice start to break before they become an issue is key for minimizing the damage when a big storm hits. Shingles are more likely to blow away and cause even more damage when they’re misshapen, torn, or generally damaged in some way.
Insurance Claims for Damaged Roofing
It is recommended to review your insurance policies and choose clauses that are suitable for the area you live in. If you live somewhere that is prone to heavy hail storms, ensure your insurance covers hail damage so you’re not facing unexpected costs when the inevitable happens.
