Professional Storm Damage Inspections and Assessments

After a storm, you may notice that your home’s roof, siding, or gutters took the brunt of the force. Hail, trees, heavy branches, and wind can do a number to the exterior of your house. Depending on how big your property is, it might be difficult and unsafe to get a thorough look at the entire structure. For homeowners, the safest thing to do is look around on the ground for any fallen shingles or pieces of siding and gutter. Our team offers free roof and siding inspections to properly assess the extent of the damage and the necessary repairs required to make the structure sound. Our crew is trained to look for:

  • Shingle granules in your gutters or downspouts – This is often a sign of worn or damaged shingles. As they lose the protective granule covering, they become weak and brittle.
  • Tears, dents, or cracks in the roof due to hail – Once a shingle is compromised, it will continue to deteriorate, exposing the roof to further damage.
  • Loose or missing shingles – Older roofs are prone to losing shingles after heavy storms any time of year.

Common Storm Damage

As a property owner, it's a good idea to be aware of the common types of storms and the damage that’s typically associated with them. Understanding these situations will help you be proactive in investigating and calling us for suspected help.

  • Hail damage – Ice pellets falling from the sky cause significant damage to shingles, gutters, and siding. After a hail storm, especially one with large chunks, it’s critical to assess the exterior of your home for any dents, cracks, or missing pieces. Any place water can gain entry in a future storm poses a risk to the inside of your home.
  • Wind-driven rain – When people talk about storms and say, “It’s raining sideways,” they’re referring to wind-driven rain. This type of forced rain finds its way under shingles and onto roof boards, which is a common cause for roof leaks. Wet roof boards can rot and grow mold if they don’t have a chance to dry out. If you experience frequent roof leaks during rain storms, you may have shingles that are starting to peel up.
  • Snow weight – After heavy snowstorms, if the temperatures stay below freezing and the snow doesn't melt right away, it puts a lot of pressure on your home's roof. Additional trouble comes in the form of ice dams. If your attic isn't well-insulated, heat loss through the roof, combined with the bright sun during the day, can lead to snow melting on your shingles. However, when the sun sets and temperatures drop at night, the melting snow freezes, and ice packs in the gutters and around the eaves. These ice dams add extra weight causing significant damage and leaks.

Insurance Claim Tips

Most homeowner's insurance plans cover storm damage. No matter how minor the damage to your home may be, it’s still critical to have the issue addressed whether you file a claim or not. A simple crack in your siding or one missing shingle can be the gateway to further damage behind the walls or underneath the roof of your home.
