Hurricane Dorian has finally passed us by. Everything will return to normal and we’ll soon forget about that storm until the next one pops up. The problem is that these storms can often leave damage that goes unnoticed. The importance of a professional roof inspection to ensure your home remains undamaged can’t be overstated. Seemingly minor issues can grow to something much more, leading to major roofing repairs if not caught early. The bottom line, you need a post-hurricane roof inspection. Here’s why:
Identify Any Damage
The first reason you need a roof inspection after a major storm is to identify any damage that may have happened. Even the seemingly smallest damages can turn into something so much worse if not corrected. It’s easy to ignore that small leak, to put a bucket under it when it rains, and move on about your life. But as more and more water comes into contact with that small leak, what was a minor repair can quickly become a whole new roof.
Document Evidence of a Problem
Most insurance companies will have some kind of time limit on when a claim can be filed. An expert contractor, with experience dealing with these companies, can help by inspecting your roof, documenting damage, and helping you know whether or not you need to file a claim. Make no mistake about it, documentation is key to the claims process and a quality professional should be able to help you with all of it.
Ensure Your Family’s Safety
The most important reason to have a roof inspection done after a hurricane, or other major storm, is to ensure the safety of your family. Your home is the place where you all come together, where you celebrate, live life, sleep, and come back to time and again. A proper and professional roof inspection will help you sleep well knowing that what’s over your head is secure and strong.
