Your roof is the most vital component protecting your home. When that system has been compromised, the result can be costly & very inconvenient. While there are countless issues your roof could be suffering from, it is wise to have your roof inspected every few years by a local roofing contractor to prevent severe damages to your home.
Damages to your roof that are a direct result of storm damage: water, wind or hail must be thoroughly inspected by a roofing professional as well as your insurance company. Damages should be documented & corrected properly. In the event of catastrophic hail, roof replacement will be warranted by your insurance company. Your roofing contractor can assist you through the insurance claim process. Having a trusted professional on your side makes this process much simpler.
Damage caused by animal or insect intrusion, tree damage or other damages not caused by normal wear & tear, poor installation or maintenance can be claimed through insurance but may result in repairs. Depending on the severity of the damages coupled with the overall condition of the roof, total roof replacement may be a better option.
While you can't control the weather, home maintenance is the biggest factor in prolonging the longevity of your roof. First, make sure when your roof is replaced, ensure it's done so by a trusted local roofing contractor who's insured & factory certified through the manufacturer. Second, the life of your roof depends on you. Always have your roof inspected after a severe storm. It's better to be safe than sorry. If you suspect your roof has been damaged and/or is leaking, call your roofing contractor immediately. Do not assume it is okay. Keep debris from building up in valleys, low-slopes & gutters.
Remember, it only takes one nail, one tree limb, one raccoon or one severe storm to cause the damages below. The longer these damages go uncorrected, the bigger and more costly the repair or replacement. Please do not attempt to climb on or repair your roof. Always call a professional to inspect & diagnose & address the problem.
