How to Detect and Repair Roof Damage After the Storm
After a rain, wind, hail, snow or ice storm strikes, your home and roof can experience significant damage. If your roof starts leaking, then interior walls, ceilings and other areas of your home can be affected. You can also have missing or damaged roof shingles.
In addition to visually assessing your roof, our thermal imaging cameras are used to assist in the detection and diagnosis of leaks.
Our thermal imaging equipment allows us to measure and detect the changes in surface temperature that is being investigated. These temperature changes are not visible to the naked eye. By identifying surface temperature changes we can pinpoint leaks in your roof, walls, ceilings and behind tiled surfaces.
Our thermal imaging cameras allow us to locate leaks where there is no physical evidence of any moisture damage. It also allows us to track the extent of damage to the affected area, most often the leak is never at the point of the visible damage.
Visually assess your roof by walking around the perimeter of your house and taking note of any visible
storm damage. You might also have a good view of parts of your roof from one of your windows. Keep a
list of notes and/or take pictures — this can potentially be helpful later for insurance purposes. Any visible
signs of storm damage should be documented, such as dented, torn, curled, or missing shingles.
