Did your area just get hit by a storm? There’s a good chance your home may have incurred storm damage. Getting the roof fixed is a given, but there are right and wrong ways to go about getting the job done. The storm damage experts from Arch Exteriors are here to tell you the most important do’s and don’ts of roofing work after a storm.

DO Contact a Roofer

The first thing you need to do is to call help from someone that can assess the situation. The sooner you can contact a certified roofer, the sooner someone with a trained eye can fully assess the extent of the damage. This will help you make a strong case when making an insurance claim for the necessary fixes.

DON’T Climb the Roof

It might be tempting to climb on top of your house so you can get more info about how damaged your roof is. However, doing so is unsafe, especially if you don’t have the necessary equipment. According to experts, it’s much better to wait for a roofing contractor to arrive at the scene. You can still provide info, but make sure you do your observations at ground level.

DO Check Your Warranties

Repairing storm damage can be costly, and a roof insurance claim will most likely cover part of the damage. Fortunately, you can save more on repair costs in case your roof is covered by a service warranty. See if the roof is still under a warranty policy and if it covers damage caused by bad weather.

DON’T Exaggerate Your Claims

Some homeowners will try to get more out of their insurance claims by exaggerating the extent of the damage. Aside from lowering the chances of your claim being approved, it might also cause your insurance provider to refuse future claims. An honest claim backed by a certified roofer is always good, and it will almost certainly be approved without further questions.
