Document the materials that are visible or exposed. Check for signs of exposed plywood, tarpaper, or the ends of missing shingles. Take note of the color of the material and the approximate shade. (Additional shingles from a roof replacement project in the past will have the shingle color stamped on the end of the package.) Take lots of pictures, they are going to help you!
2. Make temporary fixes to minimize property damage. Even Tarping might be a great option at this point!
If the roof is severely damaged in an area directly above a living space, the interior property can be damaged by leaking water. Be sure to place a bucket or garbage can under leaks and remove any valuables in the area in order to prevent further interior damage. Serious damage may need to be waterproofed quickly using a strapped tarping method, while smaller repairs can be shingled immediately. 🌨 FREE Roof Inspection and Emergency Roof Tarping Service – to help our customers prevent further damage while waiting for the insurance company to send someone out & 🌨 FREE Estimate Call us right away
3. Contact your insurance company.
Contact your insurance company. Evaluate if the damage is large enough to be covered through home insurance, or whether it would be more economical to hire a contractor directly for any necessary repairs. In times of natural disaster, when large residential areas are hit by a storm or other severe weather, it can be beneficial to use your homeowner’s insurance as contractors can become busy. We are always ready for you, Roofing Masters Network!
4. If necessary, contact a reliable contractor to repair the roof.
If you decide to hire a private contractor, always hire a professional certified roofing contractor. Avoid contractors who are in the area because of a natural disaster. Traveling contractors who follow storms have no reputation to uphold and may provide substandard workmanship.
