Roofing systems are exposed to the elements all the time. When the weather takes a turn for the worse, your home depends on your roof for protection. Good roofs can hold up well against heat, snow, ice, hailstorms and rainstorms, but sometimes, a storm comes along that wreaks havoc on practically everything in its way.
A roof inspection is a good idea after a storm, but if your roof is damaged, it’s a better idea to call a roofing contractor both for the inspection and the repair or replacement.
If your roof is damaged by a storm, you can file a storm damage claim with your insurance company. The rules and terms of your policy can be confusing, though, so you need all the help you can get. AQ Roofing LLC can give you the assistance you need during such times. Here’s what’s going to happen:
Roof Damage Inspection and Assessment
Contact your residential or commercial roofing contractor as soon as the storm has passed, and it’s safe to go outside. Representatives from AQ Roofing LLC will arrive and immediately give your roof a thorough inspection. At this point, you should call your insurance provider so it can send an adjuster to your home. You can give a copy of our inspection report to the adjuster. A third-party inspection is very helpful at times like this.
While you’re waiting for our roofers to arrive, you can do an inspection of your own. Just be careful not to put yourself at risk by climbing on your roof. Instead, stay on the ground, and use your camera phone to take pictures of your roof’s condition. You might find damage to your shingles, gutters, fascia and other areas just by looking up at your roof from a distance. We will take your photos into account when we do our own inspection. Your photos can also help the insurance adjuster.
Repairs and Replacement
It’s a bad idea to ignore roof damage. Repairing or replacing damaged parts is crucial as you never know how much more damage those issues could lead to. While we help you with your insurance claim, we will also recommend the right course of action based on our inspection.
