Benefits of having a professional roof inspection to assess storm damage
Catching Minor Damage
You will certainly notice things like having a tree fall on your roof or large bald spots where your shingles used to be, but a storm can almost imperceptible damage to a home. Professional roof inspectors are trained to catch things like bad or loose shingles, a slightly damages rain gutter, and other issues that could lead to costly repairs down the road.
Helping Your Insurance Claim
If your home has suffered extensive damage during a storm and you need to make an insurance claim, a professional inspector will be far better at assessing the damage than you will be. You will most likely need to tell your insurance company exactly what kind of damage your roof has suffered, so having a detailed report from a professional roof inspector will definitely help in that regard.
Making Repairs While They’re Still Small
A damaged roof can be incredibly costly and inconvenient to repair, and things will only get worse the longer you let any problems slide. Since professional roof inspectors are trained to catch even the smallest issues on a roof, they can help you fix problems while it is still affordable to do so.
Even though it is in your best interest to have a professional take a look at your roof after a storm, you still need to make sure that you are hiring an inspector you can trust. There are a lot of scammers out there who will inspect your roof and not be honest in the process. Contact Eastern Roof Tech today to set up your free roof inspection. 704.663.7521
