Inspect Your Roof

When it is safe, go outside and have a good look at your roof, walking around the whole property. For GRP flat roofs, try and inspect the roof from a window. We also recommend going into the attic to inspect the roof from the inside. You are looking for any signs of damage which may need roof maintenance.

If you see anything amiss or have any concerns, contact a reputable roofing contractor like Pye Roofing Specialists Ltd in Sheffield. We can carry out a survey and advise on repairs or reroofing.

The following are some types of damage caused by heavy winds, rain, hail and debris:

  • Loose, slipped, missing or cracked tiles/slates

  • Punctures

  • Leaks and water in the attic

  • Hanging or misshaped gutters, fascias and soffits

  • Missing, loose or damaged lead flashing

  • Unstable chimney stacks

  • Missing chimney caps/crowns

If you plan to make an insurance claim, you should document any damage by taking photos. It can also be beneficial to keep a record of weather conditions, such as weather reports from the date of the storm.
