Oftentimes, a damaged roof needs immediate attention, such as securing and tarping the damaged area, to prevent further harm from water intrusions. We deal with insurance claims on a regular basis and know that making short-term emergency repairs right away is critical because insurance policies typically have a clause requiring that homeowners make every reasonable effort to mitigate additional damage.

The roofing contractor, is willing to be on hand during the visit from your insurance adjuster. This ensures that the damage report filed by your adjuster reflects the true extent of the damage to your roof.
Once the adjuster files their report and you’ve received a copy, you and your roofer can go over the details to make sure it’s complete and accurate and that the included repairs all comply with our local building codes. This helps you avoid the headache of having to file a supplemental claim down the road.
High winds can cause damage to your roof, even without hail or other harmful weather. Shingles roofs especially take a beating during high winds, despite most being rated to withstand 90 mph winds.

When hail hits, it can damage the roof or covering of your home as well as other personal property. Although hailstorms can be destructive, the amount of damage can vary greatly. For example, hail can cause dings in aluminum siding, gutters or asphalt shingles, whereas it can crack vinyl siding or wood shakes.
LEAKS AND WATER SPOTS
Visit the attic for signs of water damage such as mold, sunlight shining through the beams, leaks, exposed seams, and sagging areas in the roof. Wet stains or spots down in the ceiling and down the wall are indicative of a slow leak while leaks are indicative of a larger leak.
Water leaks from ice and snow are caused by interior heat from house. Water from ice melting on the roof is trapped and creates an ice dam on the roof, gutters and downspouts. Unfortunately, this may also damage shingles.
