Your Honolulu Roof:Storm Damage?

How Can You Prepare Your Roof for the Next Storm?

What to do before the storm:

Unfortunately, you can’t do much to prepare your roof when a storm is imminent. There are few things you can do to help minimize the coming damage. 

  • Clean your gutters so that water has a way to escape your rooftop without backups.
  • Trim trees and vegitation to keep them from falling on your house.
  • Remove all sources of debris from your yard. 
  • Secure anything that may become wind-borne and cause harm. 
  • Do what you can to prevent or catch leaks in compromised areas. 

Once you prepare your roof, you have to trust the quality of the installation and the material. 

What to do after the storm:

The best course of action when dealing with a damaged roof is caution. Roofs can leak, be unsafe to walk on, and have less obvious damage. Although missing shingles, holes in the roof, or a torn-off roof may be obvious, smaller penetrations, structural damage, and leaks are harder to spot. 

Finding a qualified contractor to inspect your roof is essential to ensure that your roof is safe and sound for you and your family. Don’t hire just anyone willing to get on your roof. You don’t want any damage to go unnoticed. 

When it’s time for roof replacement or repair:

If your asphalt or other temporary roof is damaged, find a quality local contractor to repair it.
