When you need a roofing repair contractor because of storm damage, you want the roofing repair done right and quickly. You want the roof contractor to work with your insurance company so your interests are protected and your roof is completely restored. If you’ve experienced wind, hail or any other type of damage requiring repair, here is what you need to do.
Protect Your Family First
The first thing to do is to make sure your family is safe. If a tree or other object has fallen onto the roof, get out of the home. If you are sure your home is safe to remain in, the next step to take is to try to stop further water damage by placing buckets or using towels to dry up the water. You should also call your insurance company at this point.
Call a Roofing Repair Contractor
Although the roof contractor won’t do any work to fix the damage, they should be able to stop water from getting into your home. This is usually done by installing a tarp across the damage. This will allow the insurance adjustor to view the damage in its original state. They can also give you an estimate for the repair. You can use their estimate as a comparison for what your insurance company says they will pay for. If there are vast differences, like the roofing repair contractor recommends a new roof while your insurance company says a repair will suffice, you should ask both to come back at the same time to discuss their differences.
