If you suspect roof damage after a major, or minor, storm, your first inclination is to call your homeowners insurance. But what happens if the insurance adjuster sent to inspect your roof claims there is nothing wrong?
Ask for a second opinion
The potential problems even subtle damage to your roof can cause is worth getting a second opinion. Call in a quality roofing company to have a professional roofer take a look at your concerns. The peace of mind is well worth the extra step. Because the truth is assessors sent out by an insurance agency are more likely to lean to the companies advantage rather than the homeowner. Also, the adjuster may not be familiar with the material or architectural design of your home.
Subtle is not safe
An emergency roof repair is not always necessary, but even subtle damage can wreck havoc in time. Shingle damage of any kind creates the opportunity for slow leaks which can lead to home damage, wood rot, and dangerous mold problems. While a roof replacement may not be necessary, re roofing, or an emergency roof repair could be in order to save yourself the trouble and headaches of problems down the road.
Call in the professionals
A roofing contractor can give the proper inspections and provide your homeowners insurance company the evidence it needs to make an informed decision.
