Whether you own an asphalt or metal roofing system, you’ll still have to check on your roofing system after a storm. That way, you can ensure it wasn’t damaged during the storm. Unfortunately, some homeowners tend to skip this step until it’s too late because they have no idea where to begin. Thankfully, there is a way around this dilemma.
In this post, the experts of Deschutes Roofing tells you how you can inspect your roofing system after a storm.
Ground Level Inspection
Once it’s safe to go outside, you can begin your inspection from the ground level. Simply take a pair of binoculars and take a walk around the property to see if there are any missing or cracked shingles on your roof. While you’re at it, look around your yard as well for any blown off shingles that you aren’t able to spot from the ground.
Check the Gutters
The gutters are an important part of any residential roofing system so you’ll need to check on them as well. If there is any obvious damage, like a gutter that’s pulling away, call a professional to repair it immediately. If you aren’t certain if the system is damaged, call a professional to have it inspected anyway.
A Closer Examination
Once you’ve done your ground level inspections, consider climbing the roof to take a closer look at the system. Make sure to take detailed notes of anything wrong that you notice so your roof repair contractor will have a reference point. However, keep in mind that this can be a hazardous task, especially if you’re inexperienced so consider calling a professional to get the job done instead.
Call a Roofer
If there is any obvious damage that needs repairing, make sure to hire a roofer to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Otherwise, you leave your home vulnerable to leaks and other forms of damage due to the elements.
