If your roof has been damaged, you shouldn’t wait to get it inspected. Find out the extent of the damage as soon as possible to expedite the process and help you avoid further damages that might not be covered under your policy.
We know how stressful it can be after storm damage. There’s not just repairing the roof to worry about, but if it’s a serious leak, it can cause extreme moisture in your attic, or throughout your home. Don’t let it get to the point where mold is growing and it becomes a health hazard. Contact us at the first sign of a storm damage roof problem, and our roof inspectors will take care of you.
COMMON CAUSES OF ROOF STORM DAMAGE:
HIGH WIND - Strong winds that typically accompany storms can cause shingles to crack, bend, or fly off, leaving your roof and the interior of your home vulnerable to leaks or further damage.
HAIL - Hailstorms rarely last more than 15 minutes, but the damage can be devastating. Hail pounding on your roof can cause dents, missing asphalt, bruising, or cracking in your shingles.
LIGHTING STRIKE - Your home takes a direct lightning hit that burns a hole down through the roof.
DEBRIS - Depending upon the severity of the storm, debris can include anything from branches to yard furniture. It's important to remember that impact damage might not be visible from the surface of the shingle.
ROOFING INSURANCE CLAIMS:
Once storm roof damage is identified it is recommended to call your insurance company and file a claim. In most cases, Trinity Home Renovations will work with your insurance adjuster to evaluate the damage and resolve the claim. If your insurance claim is approved, the settlement amount may be able to pay for a new roof similar to what you had before. This is a great time to choose a roof style and shingle color you want. Don't try to settle your own insurance claim, we can help!
