Before a Storm
Inspection for preexisting damage
Every day, your roof suffers damage from harsh weather conditions, including heavy winds, extremely cold winters, and heat from the sun. Therefore, you can always expect the roof inspector to look for any preexisting damage that your roof might have suffered before the storm season arrives. This way, you’re able to make roof damage repairs in good time before things worsen.
Verifying whether your roof is fit to withstand another storm
Another thing to expect from a roof inspection before a storm is for the roof inspector to assess whether your roof is fit enough to survive another incoming storm. The roof inspector will advise on how to go about roof damage prevention or if you might need a roof replacement altogether.
After a Storm
Determine areas of damage
The main thing you need to expect from a roof inspection after a storm is for the roof inspector to identify all the areas that might have suffered damage from the storm. This way, you’ll be able to get roof damage storm repair before things get out of hand and lead to even costlier repairs.
Remember, leaks are not the only signs of roof damage. After a storm, there are other problems you need to worry about, such as peeling paint, mold growth, and granule erosion. Hiring a roofing company to conduct a roof inspection after a storm is the only way you’ll be able to gain a true understanding of the extent of damage your roof might have suffered.
