What Should I Do if My Roof Has Storm Damage?

Mar 28, 2023

If you’ve noticed damage to your roof following a storm, you may be wondering what to do next. There are several steps you’ll need to take, and it’s important not to wait. The sooner you can have your roof assessed and any damage addressed, the better off you’ll be. Storm damage will only get worse with time, and if you need to file a homeowner’s insurance claim, you have a limited amount of time once the damage occurs to get this done.

Contact a Trusted Roofing Company

The first step you should take as soon as roofing damage is identified is to contact a trusted roofing company to perform a roof inspection. Whether you’ve found roofing shingles around your yard or you’ve just noticed a roof leak, an experienced roofing contractor will be able to fully assess the root cause of the issue and identify any other roof storm damage that may not be obvious to the untrained eye.

Based on the findings from this roof inspection, you’ll have the information you need to proceed. At this point, you’ll know if a roof repair or full roof replacement is necessary, as well as an idea of how much it will cost. If you have homeowner’s insurance and the roof damage was caused by a storm, your next step will be to file an insurance claim. Your roofing company may be able to assist you with this process or can provide the paperwork you need.

From there, the only step left is to have your roof restored. Again, the sooner you can make this happen, the better off you’ll be. Having a trusted roofing contractor complete the work will give you the peace of mind of knowing your entire home is safe and protected with a fully restored roof over your head.
