After a strong wind or storm, the probability of hail damage on your roof is very high.
Whether small or big, the effect of hail damage on your roofing system, including your siding and gutter system, can be very severe, especially if it goes unnoticed.
Here’s what you need to do when you suspect hail damage:
- Carry out an inspection
A roof inspection on your side means a visual inspection from the street; you can use a ladder for a better view.
What you do not do is climb up the roof; it’s not only dangerous, you may cause further damage to your roof.
If you’re not satisfied with an inspection from the street level, call in roofing services for better assessment.
With a roofing contractor, you have a better chance of finding out the intensity of the damage and whether roofing repair or replacement is necessary.
- Ensure your gutters are in a good condition
As we mentioned before, hail damage can also impact your gutter system, and a negative impact on your gutter affects your property’s integrity.
So, check for any clogs that may have resulted from loose shingles coming off during the storm or any other issue that might have interfered with your gutter system.
As you make repairs to your roof, it’s vital to address gutter problems as well.
- File a roofing insurance claim
If the roof damage is severe, it would be best to contact the insurance company to cover the roof replacement or repair costs.
But before you do that, get an estimate so that you can get a fair deal.
