When your home’s been hit by a storm, don’t trust your roof repair to just anyone. GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, delivers quality products and a team of factory-certified contractors to help homeowners who have been caught in Mother Nature’s path.
A storm can take on various forms: it can be a tornado, hurricane, hailstorm, heavy rain, or a snowstorm with strong winds.
Here are some details on what that means for your roof.
After a storm, assess the damage. Do not climb on the roof yourself, as the roof may be slippery and not structurally sound. Look for any blown-off, ruptured, or cracked shingles and damaged gutters or windows. (A good pair of binoculars can be a big help and keep you safer than climbing a ladder.) Inside, check for any leaks in the ceiling around lights or in the attic. See “Key Danger Signals of a Failing Roof” for more signs that your roof needs repair or replacement. If you have damage, call your local professional roofing contractor or find a factory-certified contractor on gaf.com.
GAF Shingles can be installed anywhere in the U.S. because they all pass the ASTM D3161, Class F 110 mph wind test and the ASTM D7158, Class H 150 mph wind test. See our "Extreme Shingle Testing" video to see how much these shingles endure to protect your home.
