Don't Ignore The Possibility Of Storm Damage And The Necessary Roof Repairs
When it comes to storm damage, it's almost a matter of when not if. Storm repair for roofing is more common than most people realize. The longer you're a homeowner, the greater the chance you'll suffer damage and need storm repair - maybe even more than once.
Even with advance notice of a storm, there's only so much you can do. Homeowners who remain proactive with preventative maintenance are less likely to sustain damage than those with aged, compromised rooftops. However, anyone is at risk if severe weather activity hits your area.
What You Should Know About Storm Repairs & Your Roof
There are several weather-related factors that contribute to property damage, including impacting your roofing. Common causes of roof damage include hail, high winds, heavy rain, and ice. Storms can lead to weather-related damages like:
- Loss of Granules
- Loss of Shingles
- Damaged Gutters
The first thing to do if you even suspect you have storm-related roof damage is to contact your insurance provider. There's a small timeframe in which you can file a claim, which is why it's better to err on the side of caution and request an inspection, even if you don't see damage or leaks. If you find out later that you have repair needs caused by a previous storm, it will be too late, and you'll have to pay out of pocket.
You'll need to choose a reputable professional to make the necessary repairs. After weather incidents, roofers tend to come out of the woodwork, including out-of-town contractors. Avoid high-pressure tactics or working with companies you won't be able to find in a month when you notice the work isn't up to par.
