5 Tips to Follow When Preparing for a Storm Damage Repair

by | Feb 21, 2019 | Roofing

Severe storms and natural calamities are devastating. More often than not, these catastrophes leave a trail of destruction in their wake. In terms of damage, one of the most gravely affected components in the home is usually the roofing system. While there are ways to prepare your home for a home, these preparations sometimes fall short. After all, nobody can predict exactly how hard a storm can hit or how severe the damage to your home might be.

You might not be in the best state of mind after surviving particularly harsh weather and seeing your roof in ruins. Roofing and gutter installation company Y.E.S. Contracting Services aims to help by sharing a few tips and steps you can follow when preparing for a storm damage repair.

  1. Switch Everything Off

If you had to evacuate prior to the catastrophe, the first thing you have to do upon getting home is to refrain from switching on any electrical devices and gas lines. Wait for the go-signal from your local authorities or your gas and electric company.

  1. Tidy Up

While waiting for professional help to arrive, clean up what you can in and around your home. This is to allow easy access to the affected area.

  1. Take Pictures

Taking pictures might be the last thing on your mind after a storm. However, gathering photographic evidence of the extent of damage on your roof can help make the process of filing an insurance claim way easier. Most local roof repair contractors offer insurance claims assistance. Any evidence and documentation would be a great help.

  1. Perform Temporary Fixes

You should never DIY a storm damage repair, but you can shorten your contractor’s prep work by putting a tarpaulin over furniture and floor space directly below the damaged roof. This also makes the cleanup after the repair easier.

  1. Take an Inventory

Finally, you should take stock of the items in your home before the storm repair contractor arrives.

This way, you’ll have an easier time with inventory should you need to move your things during the repair.
