How to Handle Roofing Disasters

Protecting and ensuring the health of your roof is an important part of homeownership.

Roofs can be damaged by wind, hail, severe rainfall, ice/snow, or sometimes they just need to be replaced due to age.

If you think your roof has been damaged the first step is to assess it for damage. Look for signs such as curled or missing shingles or more obvious signs such as holes in the roof or the exposure of plywood. If you are unsure of damage but are worried some contractors will come out and do a roof inspection. Make sure whatever contractor you go with is licensed, bonded, and insured.

If you have damage it is important to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. If your roof has a hole you should first get the area secured with a tarp to prevent water from creating more damage to the interior of your home. Depending on your coverage and the extent of damage sometimes your insurance will cover the damages.
