When severe weather strikes roof damage follows, particularly caused by high winds and hail. Storm damage can compromise the structural integrity of your roof, making it vulnerable to leaks, mold, and other problems that can affect the safety and comfort of your home.

What to Expect After Wind Damage to Your Roof

It’s natural to be concerned after experiencing a potentially damaging storm. But, knowing what to expect can help you take action. Follow these steps to address roof storm damage and restore your peace of mind.

  1. Assessing Damage to Your Roof: One of the first things you need to do is conduct a thorough inspection on your roof. This should be done by a professional roofing contractor, but you can also do a preliminary assessment on your own. It is crucial to identify all areas of damage no matter how small they appear. Look for signs of lifted or missing shingles, cracked or broken tiles, loose flashing, and any other visible signs of damage. Be sure to document everything and take photos for insurance purposes.
  2. Protect Your Home from Further Damage:If there are any holes or areas where the roof has been compromised, cover them with a tarp or other temporary solution to keep out any moisture or debris.
  3. Hire a Storm Damage Roof Repair Expert: It is essential to work with a roofing contractor who is experienced in storm damage repairs to ensure your roof restoration is done correctly and effectively. Your contractor can help you assess the severity of damage and determine the best course of action.
  4. Contact Your Insurance Company: It is important to contact your insurance company to ensure any necessary repairs are covered. An experienced roofing company, like Choice Home Remodeling, can work with your insurance company and provide estimates, documentation of damage, and the repairs needed. Be sure to keep a record of all conversations and documents related to the claim.

Hail damage is a frequent occurrence that can wreak havoc on your roof, and if left unchecked, can lead to some serious impairments to your home. That is why it is crucial to address hair damage as soon as possible and avoid any deterioration or further damage.

Hail can create visible damage such as dents and punctures, as well as potentially overlooked damage like granule loss or hairline fractures that can compromise the integrity of the roof over time. Cupolas, gutters, downspout, metal roofs, and other items can be affected as well.

I would give Choice 10 stars if I could. The folks at Choice Home Remodeling have replaced all 31 of the windows in our house over the past year. They are incredibly professional and deliver an outstanding final product. The replacement windows look better than the originals and I get compliments on them all the time! The inside temperature of the inside glass on a 55 degree day has improved by 8 degrees! I am looking forward to seeing what the differential is once the weather turns cold. Their pricing is fair and the quality is second to none. I recommend them 1000%.
We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
