Storm Damage Roof Repair

Since severe weather can be highly unpredictable, you can’t always prepare for it. When a storm does strike, your roof is often the first part of your home to sustain damage and need repair.

The best thing you can do to prepare for roof storm damage is to get regular roof maintenance and keep in mind a reliable roofing company that can respond quickly when you need emergency storm damage roof repair.

Adam Vaillancourt Roofing provides expert storm damage roof repair in New Hampshire and Massachusetts so your roof can continue to protect you, your family, and your home.

Types of Roof Storm Damage

Here are some of the most common types of roof storm damage.
Since hailstones can vary greatly in size, it’s difficult to predict the extent of damage they can cause. Hail can cause splits or cracks that reduce the protective function of your roofing materials. This can allow water to seep through into your attic, ceilings, and walls. Also, splits and cracks from hail can expose your underlying roofing materials to UV rays, which can reduce the lifespan of your roof.
Wind damage can have similar effects to hurricane damage. Wind can lift, tear, or completely rip shingles from your roof, again exposing your underlying roofing materials to the elements. You may not be able to see the amount of damage from the ground, so you should get a professional roofing inspection to avoid water damage to your home.
Strong winds during severe weather can also trees or other debris to land on your roof. This type of damage is usually highly destructive and can leave a hole in your roof. It should be tarped by experienced roofing contractors right away to avoid further damage.

Signs of Storm Damage on Your Roof

To determine whether you need emergency roof repair after storm damage, you’ll need to inspect your roof. Look for damaged or missing shingles or cracks or holes in the roof. This type of damage requires emergency repairs to avoid leaks and further damage to your home.

You should also check your gutters. If they are damaged or clogged with debris, water can back up onto your roof and cause serious damage. Gutters and downspouts should be cleared as soon as possible.

Here are some other signs of roof storm damage:

  • Damaged or missing roof flashing, which helps seal water out of your vents and chimney
  • Shingles that are dented or have lost their granules, the grainy, protective coating over asphalt shingles
  • Moisture spots or stains in the attic, ceilings, or walls in your house

It is recommended to contact a professional roofing company for a roof inspection to help determine whether your roof needs emergency repairs.

How to Prevent Future Roof Storm Damage

It’s difficult to identify potential weak spots on your roof without conducting a thorough inspection. At Adam Vaillancourt Roofing, we go on your roof and inside your attic to examine the condition of your whole roofing system, including the decking and underlayment. We’ll inform you of what we find so you can schedule repairs if necessary, and we also provide free estimates on our services.

It is recommended to have your roof inspected once a year, especially if you live in an area with frequent severe weather.

You should keep your roof clear of debris. Leaves, branches, and other debris can cause water to pool, leading to mold, rot, pest issues, and further damage. The same goes for your gutters—they need to be clear of debris to properly direct water away from your roof, siding, and foundation.

Our roofing experts can clean your roof and remove algae, mold, mildew, lichen, moss, and other fungi. Our gentle, low-pressure cleaning process helps extend the life of your roof.

It’s important to know the signs of roof damage so you can address them right away and prevent more serious issues.

In addition to the signs of roof storm damage, sagging, curling, and cracking shingles are signs of wear and tear on your roof.

Navigating Insurance Claims for Storm Damage Roof Repair

Most homeowners insurance providers cover roof storm damage, whether it was caused by rain, snow, hail, or wind, but you should contact your insurance company or review your policy to check what it includes.

First, you need to file a claim with your insurance company—this should be done as soon as possible after the damage occurs. Make sure to keep photos of the damage and receipts for any repairs to provide to your insurance company. We will provide a professional inspection report and other documentation to support your claim.

When dealing with your insurance company, make sure to keep all communication in writing and keep copies of everything you send to them. It’s a good idea to hire a public adjuster to help you through the claims process.

Once your insurance company has assessed the damage, they will offer you a settlement, usually based on the estimated cost of repairs. If you don’t agree with the offer, you can negotiate with the insurance company. If negotiations are not productive, it may be necessary to hire a lawyer to get the insurance company to cover the amount you feel is fair.

During the process, it will benefit you to be proactive, patient, and persistent. Insurance companies may not give you the settlement you want right away, but if you persist, you’re likely to receive the full amount you need to cover the cost of your storm damage roof repair.

At Adam Vaillancourt Roofing, we are experienced in dealing with insurance companies and the complicated claims process.
