The Benefits of Getting a Roof Inspection to Assess Storm Damage

Storm damage is the number one threat to the lifespan of your roof. Even a small storm can cause damage. It doesn’t have to be torrential rain, hail, and toppling trees either. Strong winds can begin to tear away at your shingles, and the damage may be imperceptible. That’s why it’s important to get a roof inspection in Hanover, MA to assess damage after a storm.

Catch the Small Stuff

You should be getting your roof inspected approximately every three years, but after any kind of storm it is a smart idea to have your roofing inspection done early. First, assess the roof yourself from the ground in order to find any obvious damage. Use a pair of binoculars to assist you. If you don’t see anything obvious, have a professional, like the contractors at South Shore Roofing, do a thorough roof inspection in Hanover, MA. Catching the small stuff now, the stuff that you wouldn’t know to look for, can save you a ton of money and stress down the road.


Getting a professional inspection is important for filing your insurance claim. In order to ensure that you are covered for the damage to your home, you need someone who can figure out exactly what the damage is, and approximately how much it will cost to fix. Often, your insurance provider will not accept a claim without a professional roof inspection in Hanover, MA to assess the damage.

Professional Assessment

You may be able to see obvious storm damage, like a fallen tree, or several shingles missing, but a professional will catch things you won’t. A professional assessment is necessary to determine the exact extent of the damage to your roof. When you get an inspection from the our contractors at South Shore Roofing, we’ll be able to give you a price quote on repairs – and we can also determine if it’s repairs you need or a full replacement. Figuring out exactly what you need in terms of storm damage repair can prevent you from getting minor repairs done on what may be a huge problem later on.
