When you have storm damage, your first priority should be calling your insurance company. Of course, if the storm did significant damage and you have water coming into your home, you may call a 24-hour emergency roof repair company first. The good news is that the work the roofing company does won’t impact the status of your insurance claim. However, at some point, you’ll need roof renovations which you don’t want a roofer to do prior to your adjustor coming out.
What are Emergency Roof Repair Services?
The goal of emergency roof repair services is rarely to repair your roof. That sounds a bit odd considering the situation. However, in most storm damage cases where you need to call a 24-hour emergency roof repair company, there’s more damage than just what is allowing the water into your home. The emergency roofer will usually take pictures of the damage and then place some temporary covering, usually a blue tarp, on the area they determined the water is coming in through. Depending on the weather and time, they may also do a roofing inspection at that time.
There are many different times in a roof’s life it may need renovation. Roof renovations after a storm is when your roofing company removes the tarp and repairs the total damage to restore your roof to it’s prior condition. Sometimes that means a total roof replacement but your homeowner’s insurance company may still classify the work as roof renovations. Sometimes a roofer proposes renovations when there’s significant water damage that had nothing to do with an insurance claim. This may include replacing joists and roof deck or something else.
