Tips For Inspecting Your Roof For Storm Damage Repair

After a storm, homeowners often question if they have enough damage for an insurance claim.  While it can seem like a good idea to climb on their roof to check, doing so can be dangerous. Here are tips to conduct a safe storm damage roof inspection.

  • Always use a ladder in good working condition
  • Set the ladder up at a 75-degree angle
  • Use fall protection
  • Wear athletic shoes with a good grip
  • Avoid walking on the roof on hot days so that shingles are not scuffed

After finding storm damage, get in touch with a reliable roofer and your insurance company.  Do note that most roofing services offer complimentary storm damage repair inspections.  Homeowners that feel unsafe climbing on their roof should avoid doing so.

What Does A Roof Replacement Estimate Entail?

A roofing company will either perform a visual or drone roof inspection.  This will determine if a roof installation is necessary because of hail damage or old age.  Even if only a few roof shingles are missing, they still need attention.  That’s because dry rot can cause thousands of dollars in damage.  Many roofing services offer 3D imaging to show what the new roof installation will look like.  This can assist in picking the best roof shingle color.  Also, this technology can help coordinate roofing and siding colors.


Types Of Roof Shingles

Homeowners have many roofing shingle styles to choose from. The quality of the shingle should also factor into a homeowner’s decision.  The thicker roof shingles are, the more likely they are to hold up against storm damage. The type of shingles that best hold up to hail are Class 4 impact-resistant shingles.  Examples of this type of shingle include GAF Glenwood® and AS II Shingles. Both come with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers labor and materials.

Perks Of Class 4 Impact-Resistant Shingles

  • Enhanced curb appeal
  • Eligible for insurance discounts
  • Less likely to need a storm damage insurance claim
  • Roofing companies can install them in lower temperatures
  • Kind to the environment because of their longevity

"Jake Calleja has been a huge blessing to our family. After a hailstorm swept through Hudson, he handled every bit of the communications with our insurance company and advocated for even more coverage. After all was finished, we received not only new roofing, but an area of gutters replaced and upgraded to LeafGuard® Brand Gutters. Throughout the process, he was very prompt and took his time to answer my questions until I felt comfortable. The roofing crew and gutter crew did an awesome job. They left things nice and tidy when they were done unlike a lot of other companies I have seen coming and going as a result of this storm."

"We had Lindus install LeafGuard® Gutters.  Two days later, we had a hailstorm that damaged the new gutters and roof. When I called the salesman, he came out to inspect quickly. He spent a lot of time looking everything over and taking lots of photos. I had approval from my insurance company right away.  The roof was done by an excellent, hard-working crew. I was happy with their work as well as the clean-up. The gutter crew was a great crew. I highly recommend Lindus Construction if you are looking for quality, great communication, and outstanding workmanship. If I have any future needs - you know who I will be calling!!"

"Lindus did an excellent job on our shingle and LeafGuard® Gutter replacement after this spring’s hail storm. Lindus had previously replaced our windows, doors, siding, and insulation, so we are sold on the quality of their work.  My wife and I were home during the roofing process and it was noisy from the start. Later in the afternoon, we noticed the silence.  No more thumping!! We went outside and the area around our home was immaculate!! Not only did they do a great job on the roof, they did an excellent cleanup. The next day the crew came to remove and replace our LeafGuard® system. That installation went smoothly as well."

"To me Lindus mean quality in every job they do. Over the years I’ve had them replace skylights, replace windows, completely rebuild a window bay, install gutters, and most recently put on a new roof and hail-damaged gutters."

"We had our roof and gutters replaced along with the replacement of rooftop part of our skylights. Care was taken to not harm plantings. Very satisfied. Highly recommend Lindus."
