Storm Damaged Roof Repair
Even the most well-designed and well-constructed roofs can be powerless against the brute force of mother nature. When a severe storm strikes, it can cause significant damage to your home including your roof. In fact, storms don’t need to produce hail or heavy rain to damage to your roof. The winds generated during a storm can be strong enough to completely remove shingles from your roof. Once winds reach upwards of 50 MPH, trees and powerlines can begin to fall and land on your roof, causing greater damage.
After every major storm, you should have your roof inspected by a professional, experienced roofing contractor for potential damage. The roofers at Capital Construction know exactly what your insurance company is looking for when assessing roof storm damage. We even work with all insurance companies so that you can be sure that your roofing repairs will get done affordably and quickly.

What to Look For
While you should always trust a roofing professional to examine your roof for storm damage, there are a few things that every homeowner can do to check for signs of damage after a storm.
- Attic: Looking in your attic for signs of water damage is a great place to start as it is directly under your roof, and therefore likely the first part of your home exposed to water as it enters from a vulnerable spot in your roofing. Water stains on your walls and/or ceilings is also a tell-tale sign that you need roofing repairs.
- Missing Materials: Take a walk around your home and look for any shingles, fascia other roofing materials that may have been removed by the storm.
- Trees/Power Lines: One of the most obvious signs of roof storm damage is a downed tree or power line that has fallen on your roof. If you observe downed power lines, call your electricity provider immediately, and contact Capital Construction to schedule an appointment with a roofer.
- Hail Damage: Hail can cause indentations in your roofing materials, siding and gutters. If the hail is large enough, it can even puncture your shingles – resulting in potentially substantial water damage and other issues.
