Here are a few tips to follow when assessing storm-related damage. If you do find damage, be sure to call a local, reputable roofing contractor right away. After storms, you may receive solicitations from unfamiliar contractors looking for work. To find reputable, factory-certified contractors in your area, visit the GAF contractor locator at: www.gaf.com/roofing/contractors.
INSIDE: Begin in the attic, if it’s accessible, during the daytime.
OUTSIDE: You may be able to see most, if not all, of your roof from ground level. Walk around your house, examining the roof for these signs of damage.
UP THE LADDER: If you are comfortable climbing a ladder and the weather conditions allow you to do so safely, you can get a better look at your roof up close.
