When severe storms rage, they can be very dangerous. Tornados, hail, or lightning can cause direct damage or incur trees or other debris to fall on your home. Here are some tips to help you through the process.

Don’t attempt to assess the damage until the storm has passed. It is not worth putting yourself in danger. In addition to the roof, some other areas that may suffer damage are gutters and siding.

If you think you have some damage, call your insurance company once the storm has passed to alert them of possible damage. They will send out a claims adjuster to look at your potential loss.

Have a licensed and insured qualified professional inspect your roof. If they see any damage that needs immediate attention, they will put up a covering to protect your home from further damage. As a trained professional, they have been trained to see damage you may not see. In addition, they will help you with your insurance claim.

It’s not necessary for the claims adjuster to inspect the roof before the roofing specialist does, in many cases they will work together to assess the damage and schedule the roof replacement or repair.
