Has a particularly strong storm passed by recently and you think your property has suffered some damage? Residential and commercial property owners cannot afford to delay their insurance claim because your roof needs to be ready for the next storm, whenever it comes.
In today’s post, Timberline Roofing and Contracting walks you through why you need to address a storm-damaged roof at once with emergency leaking roof repair:
Safety Check and Leaks
You must remember that not all storm damage is visible, however, and even careful inspection may not yield accurate results. You need a pro to double-check. Failing to spot damage on your roof may cost you more time, effort and money. Still, choose your contractor carefully; you might put your home and your family at risk when the damaged roof is treated improperly by an amateur.
Leaving damaged roofs untended will also lead to leaks. This would cause other issues, mold growth being the least of them. It might even soak through exposed cabling and wires, which would short them and even spark a fire.
How Roof Insurance Claims Work
This is where a roof insurance claim comes in. When you file one, the roofing contractor (like us) will conduct a thorough inspection of your home, note any damage and record it. Afterward, the roofing contractor will advise you to set an appointment with the insurance adjuster to analyze your claim.
When the claim has been approved, the contractor will then restore your roof, which may involve you choosing from the available roofing products and customizations, if any. This may take some time, but at the end of it, we will give you an invoice and a receipt of what has been done to repair your roof.
