After the Storm
After any thunderstorm with high winds, heavy rain or hail, it is wise to contact us for a free inspection and estimate. When you look up at your roof from the ground, all may seem well. But the point of view from the ground does not allow you to see everything or see anything close up. It takes a trained eye to spot some types of roofing damage, like popped nails and bent flashing.
Different types of storm damage can occur from different kinds of weather. And depending on the type of material you have, the damage could be cosmetic or require repair or replacement.
Hail storms will often lead to cosmetic damages such as dents in the flashing. While hail can also be responsible for some mineral granule loss, it is typically a small amount. But in aged asphalt shingle, cedar shake or tile of any age, cracking can be a larger issue. Even still, cracked roofing materials will often just require minor repairs or shingle replacements.
High winds can have a major effect on the effectiveness of your roof. The storm damage resulting from severe gusts almost always results in the need to repair or replace. Winds start at the edge, pushing the materials up. With this peeling effect, nails can pop and exposed underlayment can put your home at risk for a leaking roof.
Tornadoes – There are high winds, and then there are tornadoes. Your home doesn’t even have to experience a direct hit from a tornado to suffer devastating storm damage. In the event that your family experiences such a loss, first ensure that you have a safe environment to stay in, and then call us. We can work with you quickly and efficiently to get your home back to the safe haven it should be.
Many homeowners have some sort of insurance that covers storm damage. You should always call your insurance agent and inform them that you’ll be making a claim. But allow us to perform a full and thorough inspection of the roof before you call them. Insurance companies are prone to denying claims. With experienced home roofing professionals on your side, you are likelier to get the payment you deserve to get life back on track.
Repair or Replacement
We are interested in maintaining our reputation of honest, quality work, so we will never try to upsell you on a product or service you don’t need. When simple repairs will do the trick, we’ll provide you with a free estimate for those repairs. If fixes will only extend the life of your covering for a couple more years, we’ll discuss with you the benefits of roof replacement rather than repairs.
As certified installers for CertainTeed and Hydro Stop, we can offer you a wide selection of materials to choose from to replace a surface that has storm damage. We also work with manufacturers like IKO, GAF and Owens Corning.
Because your home may not be the only building on your property, we also proficiently handle flat roofs. When your garage, guest house or storage building experiences storm damage to the roof, we can repair or replace it with TPO or Multi-Hyde roofing materials. These materials are perfect for flat roofs that are prone to water pooling.
