POST MONSOON ROOF CARE

POST-STORM ROOF INSPECTIONS 

 

Following a monsoon event, it is imperative to promptly inspect your roof to detect any potential damage. Conducting timely inspections helps prevent minor issues from escalating into major problems, ensuring that your roof remains protected against future storms. While on the ground, take note of any visible concerns and reach out to a professional for further analysis.

 

SIGNS OF ROOF DAMAGE

After a comprehensive examination is carried out by a professional, identifying indicators like absent shingles, leaks, or water stains empowers you to address these issues before they become more severe.


TEMPORARY SOLUTIONS FOR IMMEDIATE ROOF PROTECTION

In certain cases, immediate temporary solutions are necessary to halt further damage until a more comprehensive professional repair can be conducted. Following or during a storm, a temporary tarp can be utilized to offer interim protection for your roof, shielding it from rain, debris, and potential leaks until a permanent repair can be scheduled.


DOCUMENTATION FOR INSURANCE CLAIMS

Thorough documentation is essential when dealing with insurance claims for storm damage. Taking clear photos and documenting the damage effectively streamlines the claims process, making it easier and faster. Letting the roofing company know that you need photos also helps them assess and resolve the issues more efficiently.
