What to Do with Your Roof After a Storm Hits Your Home
Climbing the roof to check for damage is a dangerous thing to do on your own, especially if the roof is damaged. Although it’s best to let storm damage restoration experts inspect your roof, you can still assess your roof’s condition without compromising your safety. Here are some things that you will need to do after a storm to make sure that your roof gets the proper care that it needs:
Look for Signs of Damage
Once the weather clears, go around your house and check for chipped or missing shingles, damaged gutters, metal pieces and fallen tree branches near your home. Also, check for loose granules and mineral deposits in your downspouts and driveways. These usually indicate problems that need attention.
You also have to look for leaks. Are there holes or water stains on your attic, ceilings, or walls? If so, this means that your roof is damaged and needs repair.
Look for hail damage on your siding. Dimples on your siding indicate hail damage. If you find dimples on your siding, chances are, you’ll discover hail damage on your roof, especially if your roofing is made of metal. You will need to hire an emergency roof restoration expert for an inspection.
