Has your roof just suffered bad weather, wind, or mini-tornado, which tore all or part of the roofing in tiles, slate? Here is how to react well in 4 steps.
1. Contact your insurance
Did your roof incur damages from the storm? If yes, then you need to contact your insurance provider if you’re an owner. If you are a tenant, then contact the owner of the property who will then contact the insurance provider. Only your insurance provider can tell you how to claim insurance for a damaged roof by storm. Take a picture of the affected parts of the roof to expedite the insurance claiming process.
2. Contact a roofer
Once you contact the insurance provider, get in touch with a professional roofer to cover damaged areas of the roof to keep water out of the roof. Don’t let the water reach the roof because if it does, the roof will begin to leak.
3. Clear fallen trees from the roof
Storms inflict severe damages to properties, and if your roof is filled with broken branches and trees, then make sure you clear those with the help of a professional because a professional is equipped with the necessary tools and equipment.
4. Repair the roof of your home
It is not easy to repair the roof, so if you are looking to put back tiles, make sure you’re not alone. Laying tiles on the roof is a complex task, so make sure you hire a professional for the job.
