The storm has passed, and now it’s time to check just how much damage your roofing system has suffered. In the clear light of day, you might see damaged roofing materials strewn everywhere, and that wind-blown debris has created openings on your roof, leaving your home more vulnerable to leaks. So, what exactly should you do next?
1. DO make sure to document the damage. You’ll soon need it when you make a claim. Carefully take stock of the extent of damage left by the storm. Take photos or videos of it using a camera or smartphone, making sure you get clear images of damaged shingles, holes on the roof or obvious signs of roof leaks. Keep safety in mind as you set about this task. You should, for example, avoid climbing up your roof if the system is visibly sagging or extremely damaged.
2. DON’T give storm chasers the time of day. They’ll be one of the first people knocking on your door after a storm, looking to make a quick buck. Most likely, they’ll be leaving you with subpar materials and a sloppy installed roof. You should work with a proven roof repair company like New Line Roofing instead. We’ll conduct a comprehensive assessment of the storm damage your system has received and suggest the necessary solution.
3. DO file a claim. You can either do this yourself or turn to a premier company like New Line Roofing. We are more than happy to guide you through the insurance claims process. We’ll perform a detailed evaluation of your roofing system, create an accurate and just estimate, and send the proper documentation to your insurance provider. When you work with us, we’ll ensure a more worry-free claims process, with the task completed to the highest standards.
4. DON’T overlook the necessary repair work. The last thing you want is to put off a much-needed repair or restoration. The longer you wait, the worse the damage gets, which translates into costlier and more extensive repairs. What’s more, delaying the work can negatively affect your homeowner insurance. For this reason, it pays to invest in a roof leak fix promptly to avoid further issues.
