Things Could Be Hiding In Plain Sight On Your Roof

It is always a smile for a skilled High Point roofer when a customer claims they previously checked their roof and do not need a replacement. Many times, after a series of probing questioning, it is discovered that they really meant they gazed over their roof from the ground. This has the drawback of making it difficult to assess the extent of the damage to your roof.

Most hailstorm damage may only be seen up close by standing on the roof and gazing down. The way shingles are made has an odd effect in that damage only appears when seen from the bottom up. Even though storm damage is evident from a distance, you will not know the full extent of the damage until you climb up on the roof and inspect the damage yourself.

Insurance companies only allow you a limited amount of time to make a claim after a hailstorm, which is why this is critical to you as a customer. After that period of time has passed, the damage to the roof no longer qualifies for insurance coverage, and the homeowner is responsible for completing the repairs. Another problem you could have is more damage to your property if you do not have your roof examined and repaired as soon as possible.

If your wood decking has leaks, things like insulation and rafters might be harmed. If you have mold, that is a whole other topic altogether. The importance of having your roof examined cannot be overstated. Nobody wants to be the person who says they do not need a roof, only to find out they do and have to pay for the roof repair out of their own pocket. The greatest thing you can do for yourself and your personal peace of mind is to let a High Point roofing service check out the roof if your property has been through hailstorms.
