Benefits of Having Your Roof Inspected By a Professional After a Storm


After a storm, most homeowners look at their roof from their front lawn and decide that the roof is okay. However, some damages are often difficult or even impossible to see, especially if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. We recommended that you seek a professional’s opinion immediately after a storm if you think your home may have experienced damages.

A professional will climb up on your roof to look for any signs of damage. Some of these signs might include torn seams, cracked or bruised shingles or damaged chimneys. Most of these signs can only be identified by a professional. Here are some distinct advantages of having your roof inspected by a professional after a storm.

  • Safety
  • In order to be sure your roof is not damaged, you will need to climb on the roof. Save yourself the danger of falling and hurting yourself by trusting a professional who is experienced and knows the proper safety procedures.

  • Professional opinion
  • You may be able to see some bruised shingles but a roof expert is able to see underlying problems that may not be immediately apparent to you. They can tell if the problem is serious and recommend repairs that could potential save you a lot of time and money in the future.

  • Insurance claims
  • If you have a homeowner’s insurance policy, a professional’s report will help you when asking for payments or reimbursements. The report acts as proof of damage.
