What to Do When the Storm Clears: Roofing Storm Damage

  • Make assessments safely from the ground. After a storm, go outside and take a look at the damage, but do so safely from the ground whenever possible. If your roof was weakened by the storm, walking on it could be very dangerous.
  • Make temporary repairs to prevent further damage. Sometimes shingles are blown off in great sections, holes are created from falling trees, or other issues arise that are going to take time to be repaired. In order to prevent further issues, make temporary repairs safely and securely to ensure that further damages are mitigated. Keep in mind that companies like ours are able to help with emergencies like these.
  • Make a call to your insurance company. Roofing storm damage is, in many cases, a situation that is covered by your insurance company. Make sure you give them a call to keep them in the loop and ensure the best coverage for your situation. You have the right to choose the repair company, but your insurance company may want to make their own assessment of the damages.
