5 Steps to Take after a Storm Damages Your Bentonville Roof

Your home is your most prized possession. You have invested money, time, and love into your dwelling. It is the safe zone that you can come home to or just relax after a long day at work. It is the place where some of the most important people in your life live ~ your family. It is also the place where your memories reside and new ones are made. This home is an expression of who you are. A place to design, create, and choose your favorite colors as you decorate the rooms of your home. 

When storms come, as they often do in Bentonville, and damages occur to our home, we almost take it personally! How dare that storm injure my home, we may think. Of course, storms are just random and there is no deliberate intention. 

Damages could be from hail, fallen trees during straight-line wind storms, or debris from a wayward tornadic event. What should a homeowner do if a severe storm creates damages? Here are 5 tips to follow after the storm has passed.

Be Safe

First and foremost, make sure you and your family are safe. This is of top priority. Homes can come and go, but your family is precious. Keeping your family safe goes for any type of weather disaster, whether large or small. Keep the following tips in mind: 

  • Stay away from downed power lines
  • Never use an electrical device if there is excessive flooding present
  • Use caution around damaged buildings and fallen trees
  • Take a clear assessment of the area before stepping outside the home

Assess the Damage to Your Roof

Regardless of how sturdy a roofing system is, it just can’t compete with some of the major storms that present themselves. Take as many pictures as you can of your roof when conditions are appropriate. If you are able, get a video as well. It is better to have more pictures and videos than not enough. 

Make Temporary Fixes

Is there water leaking into your kitchen from holes in the roof? If your home is not flooded, place five-gallon buckets, pails, or pots under the dripping water to collect it and eliminate more damage by leaking water. If there is minimal shingle damage, a tarp can be placed over the area until it can be repaired properly. 

Contact Your Local Roofing Contractor

Always trust a local company to assist you with roof repairs after a storm. Avoid placing your trust, and money, in fly-by-night, storm-chasing roofing companies. Unfortunately, they tend to prey on the devastated and don’t deliver product material and service as a local roofing contractor will. If anything goes wrong with the roof after the installation, the storm chasers have already left town and can’t be reached. A local company can quickly come and assess the situation and resolve any complications. 

We are that local company you can trust. We are Domino Roofing and we are here to help you get back on your feet. We stand behind the quality products we choose and the exceptional craftsmanship we offer with amazing warranties. We strive for your 100% complete satisfaction! 

Contact Your Insurance Agent

Make sure to call your insurance agent, and not the company itself. You probably have a good working relationship with the agent, and they should be able to guide you through the ins and outs of your policy. Ask questions about the sections regarding wind, storm, and hail damage. Some companies cover more than others. Know what your policy includes.
