Now that the storm has passed, and the clouds have cleared, it’s time to check your roofing system for damage. But before climbing up that ladder, you’ll need to consider a few essentials.
1. DO take photos or videos of the roof damage. Documentation is crucial if you’re planning to file an insurance claim down the road. Walk around your property, and take photos or videos of the storm damage. Look for damaged shingles on the ground, and check if your gutters are still intact. If you have a window overlooking the roof surface, look for any patches of missing shingles and wind-blown debris. Don’t overlook the inside of your home as well. Check for water stains and streaks on walls and ceilings.
2. DON’T go up your roof if it has sustained massive damage. Does it look like your roof is sagging? Is there a slight give on the roof surface whenever you try to walk across it? Safety should be your first priority so you should call the local expert in roof repair, Brownstone Roofing, to perform a comprehensive inspection of your roof instead. We have the necessary training and experience for this task, allowing us to safely and efficiently determine your roof’s condition.
3. DO work with a reliable roofer. Be wary of storm chasers who will be knocking on your door after the storm has passed. You’ll want to work with someone local and reliable to handle your roof damage. In this area, the name to call is Brownstone Roofing. As a fully licensed, insured and certified roofing company, we only provide superior workmanship backed by decades of industry experience.
4. DON’T put off repairs. When not dealt with quickly, the smallest roof leak during a rainy day can turn into a big issue. It’s even more serious and urgent when the damage is caused by a storm.
