Navigating Storm Damage: What to Do After a Severe Weather Event

Feb 10, 2024

Severe weather events can be exceptionally stressful to deal with. There’s a lot to keep track of preparation-wise whether you evacuate or not, and when the storm is over, there’s still plenty left to do. One of the big areas of concern is surely going to be the state of your home’s roof. Of course, your roof protects you and your loved ones from the elements and is ultimately expected to take on the brunt of damage from severe weather. But because of that fact, you need to be prepared to handle any damage to your home’s protector when the weather has finished making its way through the area. 

With that in mind, here are some concrete steps to guide you as you’re navigating storm damage. In other words, here’s the full rundown of what to do after a severe weather event to ensure that your roof gets the repairs it needs. 

Assess the Damage Yourself 

Once the storm has passed and it’s safe to do so, you’ll want to get a good look at the roof of your home. Assess any particular areas of damage and anywhere where shingles are missing or your gutters are damaged. Make sure you take pictures and videos of the damage you find, as that will come in handy later in the storm damage navigation process. 

Reach Out to a Trustworthy Roofing Contractor 

The next step is extremely important, and you have to get it right. For one, there’s a misconception that you call your insurance company right after a storm to file a claim and get any storm damage taken care of. However, you’ll first want to call a roofing contractor. And it’s paramount that you call the right roofing contractor. Doing so can help you get the most out of your insurance claim. Having an expert roofer complete a full assessment of the damage and help you with the claims process can ensure that you get what you’re entitled to. 

Call Your Insurance Company 

Once you’ve had your roofing contractor fully inspect your roof and help you take note of what to include in your insurance claim, you can then call your insurance company. It helps to have the previous assessment taken care of by your roofer because your insurance company will send an adjuster to your home for their own look at the damage. Your contractor can help ensure that the inspection from the adjuster is fair and honest. That way, you get the coverage you need and are entitled to. 

Get the Storm Damage Repairs Taken Care of As Soon As Possible  

Once the insurance claims process is completed, then comes the most important step, which is finally getting your storm damage repairs completed. The good news is that throughout this process, you’re likely to have already established a strong relationship with your roofing contractor and will have someone on your side who is familiar with the repairs you need. That makes the repair process that much easier.

He really knows roofing.

This company did a great job! I would definitely hire them again. Houston helped us pick out everything for our new roof and gutters. He was great. He knows a lot about the roofing business and was very helpful. Skyler was the onsite supervisor when our new roof was installed. He was also great and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with our new roof and gutters.
