what to do after thunderstorm

After a bad thunderstorm, it’s crucial to ensure your commercial roof property is thoroughly inspected and any necessary repairs are promptly addressed to avoid further damage.

Immediate Steps to Take

  1. Safety First: Ensure the area around the building is safe. Check for downed power lines, flooding, or other hazards. If there’s significant damage, restrict access to the building until it can be assessed by professionals.
  2. Visual Inspection: Conduct a preliminary visual inspection from the ground. Look for obvious signs of damage such as missing or damaged shingles, debris on the roof, sagging areas, or damaged gutters and downspouts.
  3. Document the Damage: Take photographs and notes of any visible damage. This will be useful for insurance claims and for the roofing company to understand the extent of the damage before they arrive.
