Roofing Do's And Don'ts After A Storm
If a storm recently hit your area, you should make sure that your roof is checked for signs of damage and have it fixed before another storm hits your area. However, you should also make sure you’re taking the right approach to keep things from going bad to worse.
Do – Call Your Insurance Agent
You’d want to make sure that your insurance will cover for repairs to avoid spending too much in restoring the roof. The sooner you can contact your agent, the better your chances are of getting your insurance claim approved. Delay this call ,and you risk having your claims rejected because the company might assume the problem got worse due to neglect on your part.
Don’t – Get On the Roof
Climbing on the roof to take a closer look at the damage may sound like a great idea, but our team of experts say that stepping on a potentially compromised roof can be very dangerous. If you really need to know more about an existing roofing issue, you have to hire a certified roofing contractor to carry out inspections.
Do – Have the Roof Fixed ASAP
One thing you should always remember when it comes to roofing damage is that you need to act fast. The sooner you get help and have the problem fixed, the more money you save by not having to deal with problems that have already gotten significantly worse. This is why it pays to have the contact info of a few roofing contractors who operate near you.
Don’t – Fall Victim to Storm Chasers
Storm chasers are shady individuals or companies that offer roof repairs at outrageously low rates to unsuspecting homeowners, only to disappear once they have secured payment. Remember that the highest rated roofer will have service fees at realistically more competitive rates, so move to the next roofer if you think you’re getting a very cheap offer.
