Severe weather can’t be avoided, and so is the likelihood of your home’s exterior incurring serious damage as a result of this natural occurrence. Our local area is no stranger to heavy rain, strong winds and hailstorms, and these events can do a number on your roofing system.
As one of the leading roofing contractors in the area, we constantly remind homeowners to pay attention to their home’s exterior, especially their roofs, following a severe storm. Consider this step-by-step guide to a post-storm roofing inspection.
Step #1: Perform a roof inspection from the ground.
Once the storm has passed and you’ve looked after your family’s safety, you can now step out of your home and begin inspecting your home’s exterior. Use your binoculars and check your roof for signs of damage, such as missing shingles. Look around your yard for blown-off shingles or any roof debris.
Step #2: Check the other components of your home’s exterior.
Find out if the structures standing on your roof also sustained damage. Check the roof’s soffit and fascia, as well. You don’t want to expose your home to leaks and other forms of damage any further, so if you see something out of the ordinary during your inspection, call your local hail damage repair pros immediately.
Step #3: Check your roof up close.
It might be tempting to get up the ladder and onto your roof, but a thorough roof inspection requires skill and expertise. Safety is of the utmost importance, too, so rather than taking the risk of getting this job done yourself, you’d be better off leaving it to the pros. This way, you can be sure any signs of roof damage, including those that go unnoticed to the untrained eye, are identified and addressed.
After a storm, turn to Coxco Roofing. Our pros will thoroughly inspect your entire roof and look for any signs of storm damage. From there, we can recommend either a minor repair or a complete roof replacement.
