What Do I Do If My Roof Is Damaged In A Storm?
If you’ve lived in South Carolina your entire life or even just a few months, you’re familiar with severe weather conditions that have the potential to damage a roof. Even in the winter, strong storms can sweep through the area causing trees to break, branches to fall and shingles to fly off your roof.
After a storm has passed, it’s important to check your roof for damage which may have been caused by wind, hail, tree limbs and more. Obvious signs such as shingles which have fallen to the ground or a leak in your attic mean it’s time to contact a professional roofer to evaluate the extent of the damage. Premiere Roofing can simplify the process of working with your insurance company while you compare the expenses of repair versus replacement.
Signs of Roof Damage After a Storm
Depending on the type and severity of the storm, you may notice any or all the following:
- Water stains along your walls or on your ceiling; drips may also be visible from the attic while it is raining.
- Shingles or sections of metal fascia that have fallen to the ground; missing sections of shingles on the roof may also be visible.
- Gutters and/or sections of siding that have fallen or been torn away.
- Large tree branches on the roof.
