Storm Damage Roof Repair Contractors in the Westerly, RI Area
Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut see their fair share of hailstorms, strong winds, and torrential rainfall. When inclement weather strikes, you probably hunker down at home until the storm passes. But what if the house itself suffers harm?
If you suspect roof damage, call Classey Roofing to come check it out. We’ll tell you what we find during a storm damage inspection and recommend the best repair to return your roof to like new condition. Don’t worry we’ll guide you through the process and even help you file an insurance claim to cover the damages.
How Can Storms Damage Your Roof?
Your roof’s location on top of the house leaves it vulnerable to the elements. Here are a few examples of how everyday storms can damage your roof:
- Excessive wind can lift shingles up or even tear them completely off the roof.
- Pounding rain can damage and weaken the protective mineral coating on asphalt shingles, leaving them vulnerable to damage from other sources.
- Fallen branches can puncture the roof.
- Hail can pit and crack shingles and cause granules to come loose.
- Ice dams can form on the edge of the roof if melting snow doesn’t drain properly due to clogged gutters and down spouts. This allows water to linger on the roof and leak into the attic.
- UV rays can make shingles weak and brittle.
How to Check Your Roof for Damage After a Storm
Storms powerful enough to crack tree branches and knock out the power certainly have enough force to damage your shingles. Before you call a professional or risk climbing on the roof, follow these steps to check for roof damage:
- Look for signs of other property damage, such as dented mailboxes or cars, torn window screens, or broken tree limbs.
- Check for shingles on the ground.
- Inspect the attic for wet insulation, rotten wood, or other signs of roof leaks.
The Storm Damage Roof Repair Process
We understand — life is busy. You can’t put your obligations on hold just because of a little bad weather. However, repairing your roof before the next storm arrives is vital to prevent leaks and other problems from developing. A bit of hail damage is easy to fix, but if storm after storm pounds on your weakened roof, water damage, mold, and wood rot could eventually threaten the structural integrity of your home.
The first step is to contact us for a roof inspection. We’ll provide a transparent, upfront roof repair estimate and contact your insurance company to begin the claims process. Next, we’ll meet with your insurance adjuster to review the scope of the work and help you secure the payment you deserve.
Once your adjuster sends us the settlement paper work, and we verify that it’s enough to cover the damage, we’ll get to work repairing or replacing your roof. Our team will ensure the work is performed to your satisfaction before deeming the job complete.
