Now that the storm has passed and the skies have cleared, it’s time to take a closer look at the damage to your roof and property. But how exactly do you get started on this task? All American Roofing, the area’s premier residential roofing company, shares some important roofing do’s and don’ts you should consider:
1. DO take photos and videos of the damage. You’ll need the damage properly documented when it’s time to file a claim. Take a walk around your property and inside your home. Take photos or videos of the damage, from wind-blown debris to the roof surface and damaged shingles, to sagging gutters or evidence of leaks. Prioritize safety as you go about this task. You should, for instance, avoid climbing onto your roof when it’s visibly sagging or severely damaged.
2. DON’T work with storm chasers. They are the people knocking on your door first thing after a storm, looking to cash in on a quick roof replacement. Avoid giving them the time of day. You should work with an established roofing company like All American Roofing instead. We’ll conduct a thorough and accurate assessment of the storm damage to your roofing system, and recommend the appropriate solution.
3. DO invest in prompt repair work. Delaying much-needed roof repair or restoration can only lead to further damage. And the more damage your roof sustains, the costlier the repairs. Not only that, putting off repair work can negatively affect homeowner insurance, so any damage your property incurs because of the delay won’t be covered.
4. DON’T forget to file a claim. You can either do it yourself or work with a premier roof insurance claims specialist like All American Roofing. We’ll perform a detailed assessment of your roofing system, create an accurate estimate, and send the proper paperwork to your insurance provider. With us at the helm, you’ll be ensured a smoother claims process and the job completed to the highest standards.
