The ABCs of Roofing Storm Damage


Storms can cause serious damage that can compromise the structural integrity of your roofing system. Part of being a responsible homeowner means understanding and following the ABCs of roofing storm damage. Read on as Bone Dry Roofing, a top provider of roof replacement services, discusses each one of them.

Roof Storm Damage

ASSESS the Roof Damage

First, check if the area is safe before going out of your house. Then, assess your storm-damaged roof as best as you can. This way, you can communicate your findings to your roofing company and insurance agent as soon as possible. Rather than climbing up onto the roof and risking your safety, use a pair of binoculars to inspect your roof from the ground. Look for missing shingles and exposed underlayment. Take photos or videos of any roof damage you see to help bolster your insurance claim.  Make sure you call Bone Dry Roofing Lafayette – more on that later.

BEGIN Temporary Fixes

Before you call a professional roofing contractor, you may want to begin temporary fixes to minimize the damage to your property, especially if the damage is directly above your living space. If there is leaking water, be sure to place buckets or garbage cans under them to minimize the damage. You may also place plastic or trash bags over furniture and other items that may be near the leak. Store any valuables in a safe place in the meantime.

CONTACT a Roofing Company

After minimizing the immediate roof damage, it’s time to contact a professional roofing company in your area, like Bone Dry Roofing Lafayette. They may be swamped with repairs after widespread storm damage, but reputable contractors will go out of their way to get in touch with you. They will arrange a time to come to your home and perform the necessary repairs, or in the meantime provide you a temporary tarp if needed. Additionally, you should also contact your insurance company to file a claim, especially if there was widespread storm damage in your home.
