If you have a severe enough storm in your area, chances are that you likely end up with some type of damage to your roof. It is not just hail that can cause damage either; bad enough winds and constant rainfall could do plenty of damage to your roof without needing hail to make matters worse. The worst part is that a bad enough storm can damage your roof, without providing you any visual signs that you could see without actually climbing onto the roof. Potential interior problems include bug infestation, mold spores, mildew, carpet damage, wall damage, water leaks, and many more problems. Oftentimes, the longer you wait, the more severe these problems tend to become.

Usually repairs are much easier to make if you start working on them fast enough. The moment the weather clears, we will be there to assess the condition of your roof and help you with any replacements or long-term roof repairs. Be wary of storm chasers After a storm, we usually see an increase in “storm chasers.” These unscrupulous companies “follow the storms,” hoping to offer you repairs at low costs. The problem is that these contractors are usually not even from around the area. Many times, they are not properly insured to work on your house or even licensed for that matter. Unfortunately, every year homeowners are surprised that the “low cost” contractor has suddenly disappeared the moment the deposit clears or they just stop showing up one day. The roof is the most important part of the physical structure of your house. You want to make sure that it is in the best possible shape. That is why you want to work with people you can rely on.
