Roofers Minneapolis MN | 5 Things To Do After Wind Has Damaged Your Roof
After a storm hits, there’s a chance your home has been impacted by storm damage. We frequently see homes impacted by wind damage, hail damage, and water damage. If you suspect you have storm damage as a result of strong wind or other storm damages, contact your local roofing contractor near Minneapolis. Roofers Minneapolis MN
Check Your Exterior
Once it’s safe to do so, a good first step to take is to go outside and assess the damages to your exterior. While you’re going around your home, look for siding damage, roof damage, and window damage. You might notice that your siding or shingles are cracked, torn, warped, missing, or see other signs of impact or wind damage. It’s a good idea to take photos and keep them as documentation of the damages from a recent storm. While you’re outside, clear any debris from the area (and if you’re comfortable and know safe roof practices, clear debris from your roof) to prevent further damage from subsequent debris.
Check Your Interior
An often missed step is checking your interior for signs of storm damage. Impacts from severe weather can quickly make their way into your home, especially if you have preexisting storm damages. If you already had roof damage (whether you know it or not), this can provide a quick point of access for water to enter your home and damage your ceiling, walls, insulation, and other parts of your home. It may be a good idea to go into your attic and check if you see any light shining through your roof, which would directly expose your interior. Check around your home for excessive moisture and contact a roofing contractor right away if you notice interior damages.
Get A Roof Inspection
This is an important step in determining if you have storm damage, where the storm damage is located, the severity of the damage, and the necessary repairs. Most of the time, homeowners don’t have the knowledge or equipment to accurately determine the storm damage that’s impacting a home’s roof and exterior. Your local roofing company offers free roof inspections to help homeowners determine what the next steps should be after a storm hits.
Contact Your Insurance Provider
If a storm has impacted your area, it indicates that your neighbors have similar damages to their homes, too. Storm damage can take many forms around the home, but your insurance provider should be able to help. Fortunately, Capstone Bros Contracting can work directly with your insurance provider, making the process easier for you as the homeowner, and speeding up the process of storm damage repairs.
Hire A Roofing Contractor
If storm damage goes unrepaired for too long, the damages worsen and become much more expensive. Contacting a roofing repair company to repair your storm damage is a crucial step in ensuring your home can withstand the harsh weather. The next bout of severe weather may be right around the corner, so contact Capstone Bros Contracting to repair your current damages and keep your home safe from harsh weather conditions.
