Post-Storm Inspection Checklist

Hail Inspection Guide

If you are anything like most Coloradans, the first thing you think about when you hear the initial pitter patter of hail above you is the potential for damage to your property during the storm. When the storm passes and it is time to inspect your property for damage you likely know to survey the roof, but did you know that hail has the potential to damage other parts of your home as well? At PRQ Exteriors, we have heard many clients express confusion over where to begin their post-storm home inspections which is why we’ve put together this handy checklist for you. The next time a storm hits use the following list to help you survey your home quickly and efficiently.

1. Roof

Your roof is your first line of defense against any weather and it is crucial that you keep it in top shape. After a storm start by inspecting the exterior of your roof. Check for dents of all sizes, missing shingles, and shingles that are cracked or curling. Once you have inspected the exterior, inspect your attic and ceiling for signs of leaks and water damage.

2. Paint

The large hailstones that we often see in Colorado can cause severe damage to your exterior paint. When hail hits the side of your home or property it can cause the paint to chip, crack, or scuff. The paint on your home is a huge factor in your home’s curb appeal and you want to keep it looking fresh. If you notice any chips or scratches, take action on repairing them to keep your home value high.

3. Windows

You’ve likely seen a car with a window that has been destroyed in a hailstorm, but did you know that the same thing can happen to your home? Windows cracked by hail can lead to security risks, debris in your home, and easy access for critters. Protect your home by inspecting all of your windows after storms. Carefully examine them so you don’t miss small cracks because without attention small cracks can quickly expand into large points of damage.

4. Gutters

An often overlooked area of one’s home is the gutters. After a storm you will want to examine the gutters for any damage such as dents and scratches. Small dents and scratches on your gutters are normal, but you will want to keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t expand. If winds from the storm blew debris into your gutter, remove the debris to prevent clogs that may cause rainwater to spill over onto your paint and foundation.
