How to Check for Storm Damage

Home damaged by storm

A storm is a force of nature that you cannot avoid. When a storm ravages your home, you must do a thorough check for storm damage to know where to look and signs to spot.

For example, if you have experienced torrential rains because of a thunderstorm, you will want to check for flooding, particularly in your basement. After a hailstorm, check for roof damage. And so forth.

Here are some common storms and the area(s) where you should check for damage:

  • Hailstorm – When hailstorms occur, most damage is inflicted on your roof, siding, HVAC unit, windows, lawn furniture, and other outdoor items. To get an accurate assessment of roof, siding and other damages, you should have your home checked by a professional.
  • Storms with strong winds – A storm with powerful winds and swirling gusts typically creates missing shingles on your roof or damaged shutters. You may also notice cracks in your siding from debris striking it, as well as other incidental damages to your HVAC unit and lawn furniture.
  • Floods and torrential rains – Storms that cause flooding not only inflict structural damage to your home, but they can also damage your furniture, appliances, carpets, rugs, drapes, and much more. Even without flooding, heavy rains can damage your roof, gutters or downspouts.
