After the Storm: How to Inspect and Repair Your Roof

Sponsored Content provided by David Grandey - Sales and Marketing Manager, Highland Roofing Company

After a storm hits, it’s important to quickly identify any signs of damage and make immediate repairs to preserve the integrity of your roofing system. To do so, simply follow the following game plan:

  1. Be Safe – look out for and clear debris, objects that may have shifted and more extreme hazards such as downed power lines.
  2. Inspect Your Roof – start by looking at your roof from the ground to see if anything is damaged or missing such as shingles that blew off or lifted/damaged flashings and gutters. Consult a licensed commercial roofing contractor to perform a thorough inspection of your roof from the roof and document any damage and recommended repairs.
  3. Look For The Following Damage – Common roof damage items to look out for include missing roofing material that may have blown off, debris, clogged drains, ponding water, damaged flashings, tears from debris or blistering/bubbling in your membrane caused by high winds and pressure changes, hail damage, interior leaks/water stains and moist insulation beneath the roof’s surface.
  4. Secure Records Of Any Damage – Take photos or video of any damage you see in addition to what’s documented in the inspection report you’ll receive from your commercial roofing contractor. Start the claim process with your insurance company and provide all photos and inspection report documentation.
  5. Make Immediate Repairs – Ask your commercial roofing contractor to perform immediate repairs recommended to prevent further water intrusion and additional damage to your facility. Cover exposed areas with tarps if necessary until proper repairs can be made.
