As a community manager, you’ve probably had this or a similar experience in the past. You arrive at work only to find a storm has rolled through the property the night before and you have residents wondering about storm damage. You spend the next 2.5 hours setting up appointments with restoration companies you have zero experience with and you find by noon you’re tired and frustrated. Three of the five you called are over booked and can’t get to you for at least three weeks. One never answered their phone and the last one is out of business. Now what?
Don’t let this frustrating experience happen to you! Learn about our storm monitoring program where you can preplan for this kind of event in the future. Remember, it’s important to have a professional storm damage expert in your back pocket for many reasons. Here are just a few of them.
1.) Not all Roof Damage is Clearly Visible
After a massive storm rolls through, a lot of people tend to want to look at their roofs themselves to see if there is any damage and decided whether they need to call someone to have it fixed or not. However, the problem with inspecting your roofs instead of a professional is that sometimes there is damage that just cannot be detected without a professional examination. A professional roofing contractor can find hidden forms of damage that are not immediately apparent.
2.) New Roofs are Still Susceptible to Damage
If you have recently repaired or replaced your roofing installation, you may think that your rooftop is not as vulnerable to the damaging effects of storms as opposed to an older and unmaintained roof. However, a roof can be damaged in a storm at any age, high winds, falling branches, and hailstorms can all cause significant damage to your roofing materials. Taking the time to have your roof inspected after a massive storm will help you get a head start on the repair process regardless of it being new or old.
With these three talking points in mind it starts to raise the question, are you prepared if a major storm damage event should occur on your property?
Partnering with a professional storm damage restoration company long before you need service will make the road to recovery a smooth process. It will also give you nice peace of mind as you tell all those storm chasers to “hit the road” because you’ve pre-planned with Association Reconstruction.
