Professional Storm Damage Roof Repair in Houston
Your roof can sustain storm damage in a matter of minutes and there's no rule on the size or type of storm that can permanently affect your roof. This is why our roofing company conducts storm damage roof repair in Houston on a regular basis. Even a slight amount of storm damage to your roof can allow water to penetrate and lead to further damage inside your attic and home. As soon as you suspect there has been some storm damage to your roof you need to call a roofing professional like Houston Roofing and Construction. Below is a sample of the types of storm damage we see most often as well as some helpful information on the insurance claim process for storm damage roof repair.
Common Storm Damage Roof Repairs
Wind DamageAssessing storm damage caused by wind is not so cut and dry. Residential asphalt shingles are designed to self-seal by way of a tar strip adhering to a match point on each shingle. During a windstorm this tar strip can unseal and the shingle can lift. A lifted shingle alone is not considered damaged. However, if wind-blown debris attaches to the tar strip during the storm and prevents the shingle from re-sealing, then the shingle is damaged beyond repair. A free roof inspection from one of our expert roofers will help identify potential wind damage.
Flying Debris DamageThis is usually a tree branch or similar object which falls, impacts the structure, and causes damage. Don’t assume your roof is fine after a storm simply because it appears to be intact. Most storm damage is not visible from the ground or to the untrained eye. Houston Roofing & Construction will provide a free roof inspection to determine if your roof is still working properly and fully protecting your home.
Storm Damage Insurance Claims ProcessIf you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing storm damage roof repair you'll need to call your insurance company in order to file a claim as soon as possible. Houston Roofing & Construction can guide you in the right direction so that your claim is filed properly from the beginning. This can save you time and money, especially if your storm damaged roof is leaking.
One of the most important tips we can offer is to have a roofing contractor meet your insurance adjuster. There are a few things that we see homeowners “mess up” during the claims process, and not having a contractor present to meet the insurance adjuster is the biggest one. The adjuster’s job is to determine whether or not your roof has been damaged by any recent storms. Your contractor’s job is to make sure the adjuster does their job!
The last part of the claims process is very tricky and creates several pitfalls for homeowners and contractors alike. Houston Roofing & Construction will guide you through the minefield and ensure you do not create any problems with your coverage, policy, or claim.
