A recent storm has passed through, and has left your property in disarray. The trampoline is upside down in a tree, branches have fallen onto the house roof, and you’ve noticed a few shingles missing.
And you now have a water leak on the ceiling of your living room.
Now that the storm is over, what do you do now?
The best thing to do is to have your property inspected by a professional. Preferably, a contractor that has experience identifying storm damage to home exteriors…
Depending on the extent and severity of damage to your home, the repairs (and the cost of those repairs) may be covered by your homeowners insurance.
Country Roofing and Restoration has been the choice of Ohio homeowners for roofing and exterior repairs since the early 2000s. Our team is trained to identify storm damage BEFORE it becomes a big issue that can cause additional – and more severe – damage to your home down the road.
We also have experience handling insurance claims for insurance carriers, so we can guide you through the process step-by-step, and can offer suggestions as to whether or not the damage to your home is worth a claim in the first place. Not all damage is worth a claim, despite what other Ohio contractors may tell you as they canvas the neighborhood.
What Do You Look For During An Inspection?
At Country Roofing and Restoration, we perform a full property inspection – just like an Insurance Adjuster would.
We start at the front elevation, and work our way around the house inspecting the siding, fascia, windows, wraps, downspouts and more.
After our inspection of the exterior, we will inspect the roof and the interior if leaking has occurred.
On the roof we will look for creased, torn, or missing shingles. If a hail was present, any soft metals on the roof (vents, flashing) should show signs of impacts. If hail is present, we will also inspect the shingles (or metal roofing) for damage. Hail can fracture the mat of the shingle, so we will look for effects of hail throughout the roof surface. Gutters will also be inspected.
After our inspection, we will review our findings with you and discuss what is best for you and your specific case.
