Hurricane and Storm Damage
 

iStock_000001368793XSmall.jpgHurricane force winds cause serious damage to homes. The winds damage the roof and let the rain in. Once the storm hits, there is nothing you can do to save your roof. After a hurricane, the insurance company will want to determine how much of the damage was caused by the storm and how much was due to inherent deficiencies in the roof before the storm. The insurance company will also expect that you obtain estimates from roofing contractors in order to receive payout on your damages.

Working with a licensed contractor after your home has suffered hurricane and storm damage will ensure that the total damage will be assessed and recorded in a manner that the insurance company requires to process your claim. Until the claim is paid out, the roofing contractor can take measures to ensure that the remaining roof material is secure and that it is safe for you to inhabit the home.

Sometimes the roof is too old or too damaged to repair and a full replacement is necessary. In this instance, a licensed roofing contractor can review the damages with you and advise of the best course of action that you should take.

After a storm, be wary of unlicensed and unscrupulous roofing companies who prey on the storm victims. Be sure to use only a licensed and insured roofing contractor. This will ensure that your storm repairs are done correctly and last through the next storm.
