One bad storm can have you scrambling to find good roofing and siding installation services for some much-needed repairs. Storm damage can be particularly troublesome because it can cause issues that remain undetected for a long time, slowly worsening before reaching a point when it’s no longer cheap to repair them.
Dealing with storm damage can be stressful if you don’t know where to start. The first few steps are essential here as it can dictate the direction where your repairs will go. Thankfully, here are tips from our experts at Universal Roofing & Exteriors that make handling the damage caused by storms as easy as A-B-C!
A – Assess the Damage
As soon as the weather clears up, contact your local roofing and siding contractor for a thorough assessment of your home. Do not attempt to try and inspect the roof yourself because the structure itself might be unstable and you could cause more issues even if you’re only taking a look. Walk around your property and document everything from the ground instead.
B – Begin With the Easiest Fixes
Delaying repairs can be dangerous and may even cause you to lose some of your insurance coverage. Once an initial inspection is done, make sure you get the repair ball rolling as soon as possible. Your roofer should be able to help you get started in this.
C – Call Your Insurance
Check your coverage first if storm damage on your siding and roofing is covered by your homeowners’ insurance. Your provider will usually send an adjuster to inspect your home but having your own contractor provide an inspection report will also be helpful.
