The weather can be unpredictable and a severe storm can significantly damage your home. You need to be ready. If you know what to expect then you’ll be more prepared to restore things to normal. In this article, Pritchett Roofing, Inc., the leading roof replacement company in our local area, explains what you need to do after a storm.
Inspect Your Roof for Damage
The first thing you need to do is to stay safe. Don’t inspect your home for damage until the storm has passed. Take a pair of binoculars and perform a simple visual inspection of your roof from the ground. Look for signs of roof damage such as missing shingles, holes, split seams, dented shingles and granules collecting in your gutters and downspouts. You should also look for leaks in your ceiling and attic.
Avoid Storm Chasers
After documenting the extent of the damage to your home, you should call a reputable roof repair company as soon as possible. Make sure to call an experienced and well-established company. Don’t fall for roofing contractors who go door-to-door and pressure homeowners to hire them. These are storm chasers who are just out for a quick buck.
Discuss Things With Your Roofing Company
Once your roofing company arrives, they will perform a thorough examination of your interior and your roofing system. They will need to enter your home and look at your attic because this provides them with important information. In many cases, the roofing company will discuss their repair plans with you and your insurance adjuster. Once everything is agreed upon, they will begin fixing your roof.
