Storms are severe phenomena that may take their toll on roofs. This is why it is important to have your roof inspected as soon as possible once the storm is gone, even if you do not necessarily suspect any roof damage.
You should hire a licensed specialist for this operation, because not all roof damage is visible (at least not immediately…) and only a trained and experienced roofer can make sure that nothing is overlooked during the inspection process. This is the only way to get total peace of mind. After all, there is no such thing as “minor roof damage”, as any vulnerability has the potential to turn into a disaster, sooner or later, so you should not take any risk when it comes to the most protective element of a building.
Calling a roofing specialist soon after a storm is also beneficial in the case of major roof damage. Many licensed Austin roofing companies assist their clients in the process of filing an insurance claim. Besides, their written report revealing the storm damage and the condition of your roof will help you getting a fair amount of compensation from your insurer.
Do not forget that new roofs are still vulnerable, especially when it comes to severe storms, so there is really no excuse why you should not have your roof inspected soon after a storm.
