Rough weather can be unpredictable. As a responsible homeowner, you will need to be prepared for roofing emergencies. Here’s a step-by-step guide to checking your roof after a storm.
Assess the Damage to Your Roof
You should wait until the storm subsides before you evaluate the damage done to your home. Safety should be your first priority. Visually assess your roof by walking around the perimeter of your house and looking for signs of storm damage like missing shingles, holes in your roof, loose flashing and more. Keep a list of notes, and take a lot of pictures. This documentation will help you when you file an insurance claim.
Hire a Reputable Contractor
It’s important for you to hire a contractor that you can trust. Price shouldn’t be your main consideration when looking for a contractor. If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Look for local roofing contractors with an established reputation and many years of experience.
File an Insurance Claim
Once you’ve found a contractor to inspect your roof and possibly perform temporary repairs, then it’s time for you to contact your insurance provider. Contact them, and send all the information necessary to file a claim. If the insurance company sends its own inspector to your home, then this inspector can work with your roofing contractor to make sure that all damage to your roof is documented.
