When we think of storm-related roof damage, we immediately think of hurricanes and tropical storms; however, did you know that severe weather events like a strong thunderstorm, tornado or a hail storm can easily cause damage to your roof, too?
When this happens, it’s important to diagnose any roof damage as soon as possible before it results in a more costly leak.
- Inspect your roof regularly: By doing this, you’ll be able to compare your roof before and after a severe storm to see if there is damage. And make sure to document with photographs!
- Inspect the roof immediately after the storm: This is key to prevent any further damage inside of the home.
- Inspect your roof gutters: Did you notice a lot of granules in your roof gutters after the storm when they weren’t there before? A roof that is losing a lot of granules might indicate roof wear and damage.
- Contact an attorney before filing a claim. Why? It’s extremely important because homeowner’s insurance policies are quite complicated. The attorneys at Insurance Litigation Group are experienced in reviewing homeowner’s insurance policies and will be able to go over it with you, step-by-step, and show you what kind of coverage you actually have.
