Storm Damage Repair
Storms can come and go, and while some may be mild and cause little to no damage, some will bring with them harsh winds, hail, or heavy rain. All these things may cause harm or damage to your roof. After heavy weather conditions, an inspection of your roof needs to be done to ensure that any damage that has been incurred is repaired quickly and effectively, to negate any further damage or costs of repair. Irving Roofing is a phone call away and will be happy to assist with any post-storm roof inspections or repairs at an affordable rate.
Ways to check your roof after a storm
Even a storm that does not seem to produce a severe amount of heavy rainfall or severe winds can cause enough damage to warrant a replacement or repair. To properly check your roof for any damage, it is important to check for signs of leaking or water damage, most commonly in your attic or ceiling. Check for any missing roof tiles or broken fascia boards lying on your floor, which may indicate that your roof has incurred damage in the storm. It is also important to check for any larger branches or trees that may have fallen on your roof, as this can cause damage to the shingles and they may need replacing.
You have found the damage. Now what?
After a heavy storm, you may have gone outside and found damage. What do you do next? The most important thing that you can do is to avoid trying to climb onto your roof to assess the damage yourself or try repairing the damage yourself. This is dangerous and should be left to a professional. While you shouldn’t try to climb on the roof, it is advised that you take pictures of any damage present so that you can easily lay a claim with your insurance company at a later stage. Of course, if you require assistance in obtaining clear footage of the damage for your claim, we can assist you in capturing this before conducting our repairs.
How to prevent damage from storms
There are some steps that you can take to prevent damage from incurring in the event of a storm. First, it is important to watch your trees and regularly keep them pruned and away from your roof. You will also want to clear out any leaves or debris from your gutters. Second, inspect your roof often and have it professionally inspected twice a year to ensure it is properly maintained. Third, ventilate your roof, as this will ensure your roof stays secure and stable to your home and that the shingles do not lift or fly off during a storm.
