Storm Damaged Roof – What Should I Do?

Storm Damaged Roof – What Should I Do?

Storms can wreak havoc on your roof, particularly if there has been hail, severe winds or rain, or fallen trees and powerlines. If you’ve noticed a roof leak, any broken or missing roof tiles or shingles, damaged gutters or downpipes, your roof has likely suffered considerable storm damages and it’s important to act on this before problems escalate or further water damage occurs.

Signs Of Storm Damage On Your Roof

You may not need to look too hard, as there can often be obvious signs of damage to your roof following a bad storm. The longer you wait, the more severe and expensive these issues become. Other times, damage can be less obvious and creep up on you. For example, it may not be immediately evident if there is a roof leak causing water damage inside your ceiling. Things you should look for to help us diagnose the problem are:

  • Broken or missing roof tiles or shingles
  • Loose or missing seals
  • Cracks and debris
  • Damaged gutters, downpipes, skylights, or chimney
  • Leaks both inside and outside
  • Water damage in walls and ceilings, perhaps displaying as discolouration, a growing bubble or sagging in the paint

If you have identified any of the above concerns or suspect any storm damages have occurred after a weather event, you should contact us as soon as possible on 0431 962 819. A quick response is key to stopping further damage and minimising the cost of repairs.
