The Do’s and Don’ts of Roof Care After a Storm

Did a storm recently hit your area? If you answered yes, then you need to start preparing for roof repair or replacement. There are many things that you should do, but there are also plenty of mistakes to avoid if you want to get through this ordeal as easily as possible, so here are the do’s and don’ts of roofing care after a storm.

Do Call Your Insurance Agent

Roof repair and replacement can cost a considerable amount of money, so it helps to have some of that financial burden taken care of. Try to get in touch with your insurance agent as soon as you can. The earlier you can call them, the better your chances are of your claim getting approved.

Do Call a Roofing Expert

Trying to estimate the cost of the repair for the following insurance claim is difficult for most homeowners. You want accurate quotes, so you’ll be needing help from a certified roof and siding expert to assess the extent of the damage to your roof. You’ll want to get in touch with a local roofing contractor so you can regularly reach out to him during the course of the entire project.

Don’t Climb to Get a Closer Look

We get it; the closer you can look at your roof, the easier it is to gather accurate information to report to your roofer and insurance provider. However, going on the roof not increases the risk of you accidentally causing more damage and also puts you at risk of falling and getting injured. Leave all the climbing to experts with better equipment.

Don’t Fall Victim to Storm Chasers

There’s a good chance that storm chasers have also arrived at your area. These would-be scammers will trick you into paying by offering outrageously low prices for their roofing services. If you need your roof and gutters to be fixed properly, you should only limit your options to certified roofing contractors like us.
