Your home is your most prized and cherished possession. It is the safe zone that you can come home to and just relax after a long day. It holds your memories and where new ones are made. You can share life with your favorite people, your family. Your 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 Springfield, and damages occur to our homes, we have to deal with the aftermath and clean up any mess caused by the storm. Damages could be from hail, fallen trees during a tornado, or random debris from straight-line wind storms. What should a homeowner do if a severe storm creates complications? What can be done in these stressful times if the damage is done to your home?
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, then a tarp can possibly be placed over the area until it can be repaired properly.
Contact Your Local Roofing Contractor
Always trust a local roofing company in Springfield to assist you with 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 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.

Contact Your Insurance Agent
Make sure to call your insurance agent, and not the company itself. You have a good working relationship with the agent, and they should be able to guide you through the ins and outs of your policy.
