Sometimes, even a well-maintained roof and home is no match for storms, allowing for extensive damage that can be daunting to deal with. But once you know what essentials to consider, you can start restoring your property to its pre-loss condition. Patriot Roofing, the trusted roofing company in the area, shares some of the things you should expect during storm damage restoration.
1. Document the extent of storm damage. Once the storm has passed and the sky is clear, you can review and assess your home’s overall condition. With your camera or smartphone, take photos and videos of the storm damage, such as holes in the roof, split seams, dents on vents, gutters and flashing, or fallen branches or trees that have caused impact damage to the system.
Don’t overlook the damage sustained by your home’s exterior and interiors, as well. The photos you’ve taken will be handy when you file an insurance claim. As you document the storm damage, and before you call a trusted contractor for your roof repair, make sure to take the necessary safety precautions. This means avoiding any downed power lines, watching out for hazards like broken glass and exposed nails and notifying the gas company if you suspect a gas leak.
2. Don’t overlook prompt repair work. The longer you leave the damage as is, the more you’re leaving your home vulnerable to further damage. Just turn to your reliable local roofer, Patriot Roofing. Our skilled and experienced crew will perform the necessary repair solutions so that your roofing system can continue delivering the superior weather protection you’ve come to expect. You won’t have an excuse to put your storm damage restoration off either–we offer flexible financing options that can be tailored to your needs and budget.
3. Contact your insurance company. Before you file a claim, it’s better to have the storm damage thoroughly assessed by a trusted roofing and gutter installation company like Patriot Roofing. This will give further credence to your claim. In fact, you can also count on us for worry-free for insurance claims assistance. We maintain a solid relationship with most insurance providers and can ensure a smoother process.
