Storm damage is one of the biggest and most costly sources of roof leaks and roof repair issues that every homeowner faces. Not only do you have to worry about tree limbs breaking through your roof, or the tiles being flown to the next county in gale force winds, but a roof replacement job becomes a good thing when your next door neighbor no longer even has a house to put a roof on.
There are two very important factors to look at when repairing your roof after a storm. The first, is make sure that you have an expert get up on roof and actually look at it to assess the damage - and go in side to look at the supporting structure. Just because you can only see a couple of asphalt roofing tiles became magic flying carpets, ending up in Disneyland, does not mean that you don't have more issues.
Most roofing contractors will come out and give you a free roof inspection. It is really advisable to schedule at least one annually and then, especially if you live in an area that gets hit by tornado's and hurricanes on a regular basis, have your roof `checked after the storm. They will also give you a quote for free, so have a couple of contractors come out so that you can compare costs and solutions.
The other factor is that you might run into storm chasing roofing guys that descend onto a community just devastated by a storm and then either run off with your money or do a bad job leaving no way to track them. That is why, unless it is a really reputable company with lots of documented references, it is a good idea to stick with your local roofer to take care of any storm damage.
