A lot of times people are not aware that the rooftops of their homes may have been subjected to damage from a recent storm that passed by. Storms can be very common in the spring and summer, especially if you are living in the great state of Minnesota. However, if your home has undergone a massive storm recently, you should have your home looked at right away and here’s why.
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.) Homeowner’s Insurance Can Cover Roofing and Siding Replacement, among other items
If your home is hit by a storm, your homeowner’s insurance will be there to help you with the recovery process. But it’s important you have an experienced contractor on your side. After the storm has cleared, if damage exists, you will want to get on the phone with your homeowner’s insurance company to file a claim.
3.) 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, is your association 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.
