When you are inspecting the roof of your building you will need to identify the damaged areas. Try and estimate the square feet area and the specific details of the area of the roofing that has been damaged by the storm. Take note to the severity of the damage and then carefully inspect if there are any areas of the building’s roof that are missing shingles. Hopefully, only a few shingles have come loose and / or are missing.
