Following a hurricane or bad storm in the Florida Panhandle, it can be important to assess your roof and other parts of the house, including:
Inspecting Your Roof
We recommend visually inspecting your roof by walking around your home, taking note of any wear-and-tear or damage you may notice. Chipped, cracked, dented, curled and even missing shingles should be noted. Even minor storm damage can become a serious problem when not addressed properly. If you notice any signs of damage, a professional inspection should be your next step.
Vents, Gutters & Other Roofing Accessories
We also recommend checking for dented gutters, gable vents, overhangs and other roofing accessories. Damage to these areas could result in roof damage and other problems as time goes on if they are not addressed.
Following a storm, some damage may be harder to spot than others. This can result in leaks and water spots in the attic of your home. We recommend using a flashlight to properly inspect your whole attic for any signs of a breach.
Inspecting the ceilings in your home should be another step following a big storm or hurricane. Minor damage from outside can be hard to spot and result in leaks and other problems on the interior of your home.
While inspecting your home for any signs of hurricane damage, we also recommend checking the windows of your home for any cracks, chipped or other damage.
