Spring has finally arrived and with that comes terrible storms we could do without. Storms tend to bring heavy rain, wicked wind and sometimes falling ice marbles we like to call hail. Hail is a damaging part of weather that can cause your home to suffer. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to stop the hail from damaging your roof, but there are steps you can take to make sure it gets the roof repair needed to carry on its duties.
Spot Roof Damage
Storms will roll through Charlotte, and that’s out of your control. If you’re looking to make sure your roof is hunky dory and continually protecting yourself and your family, it’s vital you understand how to spot problems.
#1 Look for signs on the ground.
- If a storm has hit your neighborhood, instead of looking up, look down. Check for shingles laying in your yard and any other materials, such as metal pieces displaced from your roof. Also, take a look at the condition of the areas around the outer edges and angles where the siding of your home meets the roof.
- Clearly, if something has significantly damaged your home, such as a fallen tree, stay out of your home. You’ll need to call an emergency crew and our roof repair team to learn if any structural damage has occurred. If there has been any structural damage, you’ll need to get in touch with a general contractor in addition to our roof repair team.
- Take a look at your roof from your yard; do you see small dimples? If so, it’s probably due to being hit hard with hail. However, if you’re unsure, schedule a FREE roof inspection to learn more.
#2 Call your insurance agency.
It’s time to give your insurance agent a call to deal with the disaster you’re experiencing. Your insurance agent should be able to tell you what the next steps are. They’ll come to your home and assess the damage so you can call the appropriate roofing team to repair your roof when you need it most.
