We have had quite a few strong winds and storms pass through the state this summer. There have been many downed trees and even some areas affected by hail and/or tornadoes. If you are a home or business owner, you may be thinking: how do I begin to clean this up? Read on to learn how a roof inspection can help make sense of things when it comes to the condition of your roof after being affected by a storm.
What To Do After Wind Damage
Severe weather can bring a great deal of damage to your home and your roof, whether your roof is 10 days or 10 years old. Dangerously strong winds can displace shingles and other aspects of your home while also potentially bringing down large tree branches or entire trees. Hail can cause damage to shingles, skylights, chimneys, and more. Metal details or old shingles can experience significant damage from a hail storm. During a tornado, your entire home is in danger of damage.
If your home has experienced severe structural damage from wind or a tree or tree limb, it is best to check with the professionals to determine whether it is safe to continue to occupy your home. If you have a leak, ensure that your belongings are safe from any water damage, and get on our schedule right away for a free roofing inspection to learn about next steps for the leak. If you are unsure about the damage your roof has experienced but are concerned, it is best to get a free roofing inspection done. Severe weather can cause a great deal of damage, but can be difficult to detect without proper roofing experience.
Steps After Your Inspection
