What To Do When Your Roof Suffers Storm Damage

What To Do When Your Roof Suffers Storm Damage

Storm damage is a leading cause of roofing repairs and replacements throughout Texas, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows what they’re supposed to do after a storm blows through. Do you know what to do when your roof suffers storm damage? If not, we’ve got answers for you.

Safely Assess The Damage

The first thing you want to do if you suspect damage after a storm is, very safely, walk around your property and try to assess the damage. Wait until you have full light and make a note of any missing shingles, holes, sagging, or other signs of damage, including how severe the damage is. The more accurate your account of the damage, the easier it will be for you to file an accurate claim.

Identify and Carefully Minimize Damage

Once you’ve documented all the damage and identified probable cause, you may need to make some adjustments to temporarily prevent further damage. If you have any big holes or exposed areas, you may want to cover the area with a waterproof tarp. If you have leaks inside your property, you can use a bucket or container to catch the water before it can seep into your foundation. Just make sure you exercise extreme caution when attempting to temporarily patch or cover your roof.

Report The Damage To Your Insurance Company

Finally, when you have all the information you need, you can reach out to your insurance company and start a claim. An insurance adjuster will get assigned to your case and help you through the claims process. Of course, we recommend you also let our roofers have a look before meeting with your adjuster to make sure you have an accurate record of all the damage you need to claim. Our roofers will notice even the smallest cracks and make sure you have a detailed list to show your adjuster.
