Roofing Storm Damage: What to Do Next

First, understand what storm damage looks like. While some cases of storm damage are very obvious, such as a large swath of shingles missing or a tree that has landed on your roofline, others are more subtle. Hail can dent and pockmark your shingles, which is sometimes only obvious when standing on the roof. Other times, you might only see curled shingles or bent flashing. While not as obvious, these situations require equal attention.

Next, know what you can do in terms of insurance. Most insurance companies are going to cover roofing in the case of storm damage, but you should always check your policy before filing a claim. If it is safe to do so, cover any areas with tarps that are damaged to prevent further issues.
