The recent rain and windstorm took many Islanders by surprise. Most people saw the floods in yards and streets, but have yet to check out their roof and its post-storm condition.

Is water gushing out of your gutters? That is probably a good sign that they are clear of debris. However, to err on the side of caution, all the wind may have blown extra leaves right off into your gutters — so use a hose and shoot water through to make sure the gutters are clear.

Take out binoculars and inspect the tiles/shingles. Don’t walk on the roof! Look for pooling, sagging or missing shingles.


Inside, check the attic for leakage and wet spots. Walk around and look at the ceilings. Are they dry or is there a suspicious puddle?
