Storms that include gusting winds can wreak havoc on a lot of things, including your roof. If you’ve recently experienced a storm in which wind damage occurred, there are some immediate action steps you should take to ensure the safety of your property and a quick resolution.

Immediate Action Steps for Wind-Damaged Roofs

  • Damage Assessment- As soon as possible, you’ll want to do a roof assessment to determine the extend of the wind damage. Wind-damaged roofs can have small concerns like a few torn away shingles or major issues like debris or tree limbs falling through the home. These types of concerns can create leaks in the living areas, which poses additional problems for anyone living there. Take down a complete list of wind damage complaints so you know how to accurately describe your needs to your insurance company and roofing contractor.
  • Temporary Protection- If your wind-damaged roof is bad enough to warrant extra steps, you may need to place buckets or tarps in appropriate places to collect water and avoid additional damage to the home. Taking these precautions will avoid additional damage to already fragile areas while also protecting undamaged parts of the home.
  • Contact the Insurance Company- The next step is to contact your insurance company to file a claim. They will want to know the extent of the damage and may send an agent to your home to collect further information.
  • Call Race City Roofing- Finally, you’ll want to call us so we can apply the necessary repairs to wind-damaged roofs. We are committed to 100% customer satisfaction and will work to have your home’s roof restored as quickly as possible.
