Some forms of roof damage can be prevented with proper maintenance. However, inclement weather can’t be avoided and may result in serious damage to your home’s exterior. Heavy rain, severe snowstorms and hail are just a few events that can ruin your roofing system.
Once a storm has passed, and you’ve looked after your family’s safety, it’s time to inspect your roof. Here’s a step-by-step guide.
Step #1: Roof Inspection From the Ground
After a storm has passed your area, you can step out of your home and perform a visual inspection from the ground. Walk around your property, checking your roof for any signs of shingle blow-off. Make sure to inspect the yard as well for missing shingles or any debris that might have come from the roof.
Step #2: Inspection of Other Exterior Components
Continue your roof inspection from the ground by gauging if any roof structures sustained any damage. Look for any signs of damage on your roof’s soffit and fascia as well. Call local roof repair professionals right away to have them fixed. Delaying this further could expose your home to leaks and further damage.
Step #3: Up-Close Roof Inspection
Unless you have adequate experience and the ability to exercise safety when climbing onto your roof to complete the inspection, it would be better to have your roof examined by your local roofing contractor. Apart from taking detailed notes of your roof’s condition, the pros can identify signs of storm damage that are hidden from view. This allows them to address problems before they turn into major issues in the future.
