Summertime in North Carolina means surprise thunderstorms in the afternoon. While most appear and leave quickly, there are a few that could cause serious damage. The last two words any home owner wants to hear is “storm damage,” but the chances of it happening are all too real.
The key is to minimize damage ahead of time. Small damage is much easier, cheaper and quicker to fix than serious damage.
It is never a good idea for a homeowner to climb their roof for any reason. There are too many possible ways for serious injury. It is best to let the pros from Drew’s Home Roofing and Repair come out and review your roof if you think there is damage.
You can, meanwhile, perform a visual inspection from the ground and by climbing up into the attic. Look for upturned tiles from the ground and light coming into the attic. Otherwise, wait for the professionals to arrive.
The first thing we will do is climb up onto the roof and perform a thorough inspection. We will look for loose shingles or other damage. Our professional technicians know what to look for and how to make immediate repairs if necessary.
Shingle damage can be visible from the ground, but some damage will require a closer inspection. There may be missing shingles, broken or detached and even signs of water damage – all that cannot be seen from the ground, only from a visual on the roof.
Inside the attic is another area that you may perform a cursory look, but a professional can make the absolute final determination of damage. Light is only one thing. Our technicians look for water damage, mold and mildew and the like.
No one wants serious roof damage, but we at Drew’s Roofing are always ready to come out to your home and review any potential roof damage. Should we find any, we can help you with a quote to get your roof back into good shape in short order.
Reminder: Please do not attempt to climb on your roof!
