Storm Damage Checklist  Assess Your Roof for Storm Damage

Walk around the perimeter of your home and photograph or take note of any damage. Obvious signs of damage may include dented, torn curled or missing shingles.

Storm Damage Checklist  Check Gutters, Roofing Accessories and Windows

Through your shingles may appear undamaged, dents in gutters and roof vents may point to hidden roof damage. Also, be sure to inspect windows for cracks, loose weatherstripping and torn screens.

Storm Damage Checklist  Inspect the Area Around Your Home

Check for fallen tree limbs, broken fences and damage to lawn furniture and exterior decorations. Look closely at flat surfaces such as patios and decks for signs of hail damage.

Storm Damage Checklist  Look for Leaks in Your Attic and Ceilings

Even though your roof may appear undamaged from the outside, wind and hail may have caused leaks that can lead to problems later. Check ceilings and light fixtures for signs of water, and inspect your attic closely with a flashlight.
