Dealing with the damaged caused by severe storms can be risky. As one of the top residential roofers in our area, New View Roofing recommends making safety your number one priority. Do not go outside until it has been declared safe to do so. Once it’s safe enough to inspect your house, you can start cataloging the damage to your home and call a contractor for repairs.
Inspecting Your Roof
Even a small roof leak can cause a lot of water damage if it is left unattended. As soon as it is safe, you need to check your roof for damage. Start at the attic during the daytime, and look for sunlight shining through the decking. This may indicate that there are serious holes in your roofing system. You also need to use a flashlight to look for sagging or dark streaks caused by moisture. Take note of what you find.
Next, take a walk around your house, and use a pair of binoculars to inspect your roof. Look for missing or curled shingles, and dark patches, which are caused by granules coming off the shingles. Try to spot debris on your roof and bent, cracked or detached flashings. Write down everything, and give this information to us. As one of the top storm repair experts in our area, New View Roofing and Remodeling will use it to quickly find and repair the problems on your roof.
How We Can Help You
During our storm damage inspection, we will climb up on your roof and look for a few signs that you need post-storm work. Such signs include nail heads raised above the shingle surface as loose nails can lead to shingles getting blown away by the wind. We will also inspect your gutters for debris, which can cause leaks. We will also look at the flashings around your roof penetrations. After inspecting your roof, we will track down the roof leaks and repair them.
