What To Do if Your Roof is Damaged in a Storm

It doesn’t matter where you live. It doesn’t matter how much you hope for good weather. There will come a time when a storm rolls through your area. At that point, all you can hope for is that your home withstands the rain, high wind, hail, and/or snow.

Severe storms can cause roof damage. While this isn’t the worst thing that could happen to your home, it isn’t something you want to ignore. Instead, you need to assess the damage and determine which steps to take next.

Here are four steps to take if your roof is damaged in a storm:

1. Identify what happened. Depending on the type of home and the view of your roof, you may be able to do this on your own. A wind storm, for example, could tear shingles from your roof.

2. Call your insurance company. If the repairs will cost more than your deductible, you will need an adjuster to determine how much the insurance company is going to pay.

3. Schedule repairs. It is best to hire a roofing contractor for this step. There are many risks of doing your own repairs. Not only could you hurt yourself, but you never know if the job was done right.

4. Prepare for the future. Speak with your roofing company about what you can do to better prepare your roof for future storms. You may find that you are having trouble because your roof needs to be replaced.

If your roof is damaged in a storm, don’t hesitate to contact us for professional assistance. We can visit your home, tell you exactly what happened, and provide an affordable solution.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
