How Ready Is Your Roof for a Thunderstorm?

Thunderstorms require two things to thrive: moisture and warm air. Moisture is often present. Warm air, however, needs a little help to get started. The hot summer sun provides the ideal amount of heat to increase the temperature of large amounts of air. This hot air, in turn, rises rapidly into the atmosphere and the displacement creates areas of low-pressure or, as we call them, storms. Thunder comes from a separation of charges between the clouds and when you mix these two together, you get one of the banes of the residential roofing industry: thunderstorms.

How Ready Is Your Roof for a Thunderstorm?

For over 30 years, our experienced roofers have dealt with countless storms in OK. Here are our best tips to help you and your home survive some harsh weather with as little damage as possible.

Professional Inspections

Your insurance will likely cover most of the damage you incur during a storm but your claim value will depend mostly on their assessment. You can guarantee that your roofing is fully accounted for by having a professional conduct a full inspection for you.

Don’t Wait for the Claim

One of the biggest mistakes many homeowners make is waiting before they get their insurance checks. If another storm hits during this time and your roof is still in bad shape, you could be facing a worse problem than what you had started with.
