Here’s a quick tip: don’t check on your roofing system while it’s storming. Safety should always be your top priority, and this means waiting for the sky to clear before determining the extent of roof damage. Today, TJ Exteriors Inc., the area’s expert in roof and siding replacement, shares more roofing do’s and don’ts to remember after a major weather event.
1. DO take photos or video of the storm damage. Since you may be filing an insurance claim later, you should promptly document the storm damage your roof has sustained. Take a walk around your property and take photos or videos. Check for damaged shingles on the ground and determine if your gutters are torn or sagging. Look for any patches of missing shingles and wind-blown debris on the roof surface. While inside your home, check for water stains and streaks in the attic and on walls and ceilings.
2. DON’T go up your roof. If it seems like your roof is sagging or you feel a slight give as you step on the roof surface, then it’s better to leave the inspection to a pro. Again, safety should be your priority, so make sure to turn to a trusted local roofing contractor like TJ Exteriors Inc. Because we have the necessary training and experience for comprehensive roof inspections, we can determine your roof’s condition in an efficient way while adhering to safety protocols.
3. DO work with a dependable roofer. You should never hire “storm chasers.” Work with a local, fully licensed, insured and certified roofer like TJ Exteriors Inc. instead.
