I’m sorry to hear that your shingles have been damaged by wind. Here are a few steps you can take to address the issue:
Assess the damage: Inspect your roof to determine the extent of the damage caused by the wind. Look for missing or loose shingles, lifted edges, or any signs of damage.
Document the damage: Take photos of the affected areas as evidence for insurance claims, if necessary. It’s important to have documentation of the damage before you start any repairs.
Temporary fixes: If there are loose or lifted shingles that haven’t been completely torn off, you can attempt a temporary fix. Apply roofing cement or adhesive underneath the lifted shingles and press them back into place. Use a few nails or roofing screws to secure the shingles if needed. This will help prevent further damage until a professional can assess and repair the roof.
Contact a roofing professional: It’s advisable to consult a professional roofer to assess the damage and provide proper repairs. They have the expertise and equipment to safely work on your roof and ensure the repairs are done correctly. Get multiple quotes and choose a reputable contractor with experience in roof repairs.
Insurance claim: If you have homeowner’s insurance, contact your insurance provider to report the damage and start the claims process. Provide them with the documentation and any information they require. They will guide you through the process and may send an adjuster to assess the damage.
Remember, it’s important to prioritize your safety when dealing with roof repairs. If the damage is significant or you’re unsure about handling the repairs yourself, it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
