How to Deal with Roof Damage
Whether your home just made it through a major storm or a windy day, you could have roof damage lurking above your head.
Whether your home just made it through a major storm or a windy day, you could have roof damage lurking above your head. After any severe or moderately-severe weather event, you should always take the time to check your roof. When any storm or wind gust reaches over 50-60 miles per hour, your roof can begin to sustain severe damage. How can you deal with roof damage to your home?
Learn How to Spot Roof Damage
Use the following tips to check the area of your roof:
- Head to your attic to look for any leaks or water damage. Are there any areas of your home with water stains on the roof or wall? That’s another sign that there is roof damage to your home.
- Take a walk around your home and look for storm damage on the ground like small pieces of metal, branches, or shingles. Check the areas about any exhaust pipes, valleys, or outer edges where the roof attaches to your home for damage.
- If there was any hail during the storm, look for dimples or small dips in the roof or siding of your home. The small pieces of hail pound on the outer layer of the shingle, which leads to the dimples.
- Always call a professional roofing company like Blair Construction help assess the damage and complete any and all repairs.
Call Your Insurance Company
If you have any major roof or siding damage, you might need to make an insurance claim to have it repaired. Always document any damage right away with photos, videos, and any other means that you have. Also, keep track of all expenses for repairing your home, whether done by you or a professional contractor. If you submit these receipts and documents with your insurance claim, you will, more often than not, be reimbursed for them.
