Your Roof May Be at Risk for Storm Damage – Here’s What to Look For

We’re all familiar with the saying “a stitch in time saves nine.” When it comes to your roof, this couldn’t be more true. Regular roof maintenance can help avoid costly repairs down the road.

But what do you do when your roof is damaged by a storm?

If your roof has been damaged by a recent storm, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Here’s a look at some of the most common types of storm damage to roofs and what you can do to fix it.

Wind Damage

High winds can cause all sorts of damage to roofs, from missing shingles to toppled trees. If your roof has been damaged by high winds, it’s important to have it inspected by a professional as soon as possible.

Missing Shingles

One of the most common types of wind damage is missing shingles. Strong winds can cause shingles to blow off your roof, leaving your home vulnerable to water damage and leaks. If you see any missing shingles, it’s important to have them replaced as soon as possible.

Damaged Gutters

Wind can also cause damage to your gutters, causing them to become dislodged or even ripped off entirely.

If your gutters have been damaged by wind, it’s important to have them repaired or replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Hail Damage

Hail can cause all sorts of damage to roofs, from dented shingles to cracked tiles. If your roof has been damaged by hail, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired by a professional as soon as possible.

Dented Shingles

One of the most common types of hail damage is dented shingles. Hail can cause the surface of your shingles to become dimpled or even cracked, which can lead to leaks and water damage. If you see any dented shingles, it’s important to have them replaced as soon as possible.

Cracked Tiles

Hail can also cause damage to your roof tiles, causing them to crack or even break. If your roof tiles have been damaged by hail, it’s important to have them repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Heavy Rains

Heavy rains can cause all sorts of damage to roofs, from leaks to collapsed ceilings. If your roof has been damaged by heavy rains, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired by a professional as soon as possible.

Leaks

One of the most common types of rain damage is leaks. Heavy rains can cause water to seep through cracks in your roof, causing damage to your home or business. If you see any leaks, it’s important to have them repaired as soon as possible.

Collapsed Ceilings

Heavy rains can also cause ceilings to collapse, which can lead to serious injuries or even death. If your ceiling has collapsed, it’s important to have it inspected and repaired by a professional as soon as possible.

Here are some tips for dealing with roof storm damage:

1. Inspect your roof for damage as soon as the storm has passed.

2. If you see any damage, call a professional roofing contractor for an assessment.

3. If your roof needs repairs, make sure to get them done as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

4. Be sure to document all damage with photos or video for insurance purposes.

5. Most importantly, stay safe and don’t try to do any repairs yourself if you’re not experienced in roofing. Leave it to the professionals.

Thanks to Royal Home Restoration for helping us file our claim with the insurance, it took about a year to resolve our case and at the end the insurance paid for the entire roof. At first, I was not sure it was going to be possible as I had made claims before and my insurance would not accept the claim for the whole roof.

stay AWAY from this people, once they get the money from the insurance they will NOT respond, I have a case going on with them since 11/2022 and to this date I could only talk to one individual every blue moon, you are better off calling your own insurance company DO NOT USE this Company.
