Analyze the Stability
If you have just experienced an intense amount of rain, snow, or ice, it is important to hire a professional to inspect the stability of your roof. Along with that, if a severe windstorm caused large branches or trees to fall on your home, you should have a professional check and see if the stability of your roofing was not affected. A professional home improvement company like Capital City Home Improvement Inc. can detect and repair damaged roofing before another storm can cause even more damages.
Review the Shingles
In harsh storms like windstorms or hailstorms, your shingles can be damaged or removed, resulting in your roofing underlay being exposed. Before another storm hits your area, hire a team of professionals to inspect and repair any damages that may have been done to your shingles. Shingles are there to protect your home from water damage and from debris breaking into your home. So, it is important that they are always in great condition.
Look for Leaks
Leaks are sometimes not noticed until the next big storm. Unfortunately, during a storm, your roofing can be damaged resulting in exposed openings. If these are not repaired as soon as possible, during the next storm, water and debris have easy access to damage the roofing underlay and the foundation of your home. You can end up experiencing leaks that will result in more than just needing roofing repairs.
Look at the Insulation
Along with your roofing, it is also important to check the insulation as well. If the body of the roof is exposed, the insulation has nothing to protect it. When you hire an inspection team, they can also look at the insulation to find any damages that may have been caused due to a severe storm. Your insulation helps control the temperature in your home and protects your home from the harsh temperatures in the winter and summer. So, it is important that your insulation is in great condition to protect you but also to manage the cost of your heating and cooling bills.
