Important Roofing Do’s and Don’ts After a Storm

Storms can damage your roofing system. Once the storm has passed, and the skies have cleared, make sure to get started promptly on roof repair and restoration. Here are some tips to follow:

DO Take Photos or Videos of the Storm Damage

You’ll find them especially handy once you start the insurance claims process. Take a walk around the outside of your home – carefully checking what you’re stepping onto – and snap photos of damaged roofing material on the ground. From a safe vantage point, take pictures of the roof surface as well. Look for damaged flashing, missing sections of asphalt shingles and wind-blown debris. From inside your home, check for signs of leaks and water damage.

DON’T Give Storm Chasers the Time of Day

They’re just looking to make a quick buck off a sloppily done roof replacement. Instead, turn to the trusted roofing company from your area, Tony’s Roofcare Inc. We’ll perform a comprehensive inspection of your system, determine any problematic areas and confirm if there’s enough damage to warrant filing an insurance claim. 

DO Ask for Insurance Claims Assistance

If you’d rather not deal with your insurance provider by yourself, you can turn to Tony’s Roofcare Inc. for assistance. We’ve already worked with insurance adjusters on all kinds of structures and can serve as your middleman throughout this complicated process. We can help ensure your adjuster understands what repair or replacement work will need to be done to fully restore your roof to its pre-loss condition.

DON’T Put Off Repairs

Overlooking storm damage only leads to further problems, which in turn, allows for extensive and costlier repair or restoration work. To keep your home’s structure intact – and to avoid expensive repair costs – make sure to call Tony’s Roofcare Inc. immediately for the necessary solutions.
