Roofing Insurance Aid
Dealing with insurance companies can be endlessly frustrating, but because of the nature of our work we have extensive experience dealing with roofing insurance and home warranties. We leverage our roofing knowledge and work with homeowners to provide documented roof inspections along with professional advice and information to make filing easier on all parties. While homeowners filing damage claims may find roofing insurance companies difficult to work with, we have found these companies generally respond better to a professional report of a roof repair, roof replacement, or other service. We understand that roof repairs can be a large expense for a homeowner and in cases where insurance companies should cover the damage we will do our best to make sure your insurance claim is taken seriously.
Having a professional roofer do an in-depth roof inspection allows them to assess the shingles, structural integrity, and other aspects of your roof, but also gives us the opportunity to assess the state of insulation, ventilation, and any potential for leakage into the home. Whether insulation was improperly installed or has degraded over time it can cause a number of issues within the home, especially in addition to improper ventilation. Heat and moisture can become trapped in your attic space which can impact the overall energy efficiency. Having your roof inspected will give our professional roofer an idea of what repair services or replacement needs your roof will require to get back to functioning properly.
Roof Repair & Storm Damage
The severe weather that can occur in central Ohio is known to cause roof damage so making sure your roof is in professional hands is vital. Without a structurally sound roof your home is more susceptible to storm damage which can lead to larger issues. Wind is the most common culprit when dealing with storm damage and can pull shingles completely off the roof allowing the elements to enter into the attic space. Snow, wind, hail, tornadoes, thunderstorms, and fallen tree limbs all fall under the category of storm damage. Working with a roofing professional means you’ll have a knowledgeable and skilled roofer who will detect and assess any damage that has occurred. If a major storm has passed through and you’re unsure about the state of your roof, schedule a roof inspection to see if your roof is in need of a repair.
Winter Weather Roof Inspection
Columbus Ohio winters can be brutal on a home, and the winter storms that accompany it can bring damage in the form of something as simple broken shingles, to something more serious like the structural integrity of your roof. Because of snow, ice, and other weather conditions this type of damage is not always noticeable without a thorough roof inspection. If a repair is necessary the roofer providing an inspection on your roof will recognize it immediately and be able to make a proper assessment. If left without a repair this sort of damage can lead to larger issues like needing a more extensive roof repair, energy loss, roof shingles degrading because of exposure, and more. Roof inspections for winter storm damage is a service we encourage more homeowners to take advantage of to save them from encountering larger issues with their roof months later.
Step Flashing Assessment
While there are many key parts that make up an effective roof, step flashing is a vital addition and improper installation can result in excessive water damage. A step flashing redirects water from entering into cracks against a wall or chimney and when improperly installed can result in water damage. When a roof replacement is done by a roofing amateur, mistakes can be made, so we encourage clients to work with professionals when doing a roof replacement or roof repair. If an amateur roofer has worked on your home we recommend having a professional provide a roof inspection as soon as possible to ensure no water is bypassing the shingles and flowing down the wall.
Scheduling an Inspection
If your roof hasn’t been properly inspected by a professional in the last 12 months we recommend scheduling a visit to make sure your roof is being properly maintained and that its lifespan isn’t shorted. Maintaining a roof can ensure that it doesn’t degrade faster than it’s supposed to and that additional damage from the elements doesn’t occur inside of your home. Schedule a visit with our team to have your roof assessed for damage, energy efficiency, maintenance needs, and any other concerns you have.
