Hail damage comes in all sizes and can even occur from pea-sized hail when it has extremely powerful winds behind it. If your roof is more than ten years old or it has missing or torn shingles then it is at a higher risk for damage during significant weather events. Even a superior roofing system needs a little TLC and maintenance from time to time from a Roofer in Tulsa. In most situations, a roof leak does not happen overnight.
WHY SCHEDULE A ROOF INSPECTION?
By the time you notice water intrusion in your home from a roof leak, it has probably done damage to other areas like your attic and the wood decking beneath the roofing materials. The safest way to recognize roof damage and avoid other costly repairs is to have it checked out by a contractor for Roofing in Tulsa twice a year, and in between keep an eye out for the following:
- Granules or pieces of broken shingles in the gutters and downspouts
- Signs of water intrusion on the ceilings, in the attic, or in the basement
- Visible light shining into the attic from above
- Impressions, dents or cracks to the siding or windows and frames
- Shingles on the ground instead of on your roof
The roof is the main protector of your home from the punishing elements that mother-nature produces. If a roof is left unrepaired by a Tulsa Roofer, it is more prone to leak during the next major storm. Because of its important role in the security of a home, most insurance policies cover hail damage. Watch for our monthly blogs as we will give more storm damage and insurance claim procedure tips.
Often times an insurance policy will declare that the homeowner is responsible to perform measures to prevent roof leaks to ensure the safety of their home by scheduling annual roof inspections. Check your policies details to know for certain what the guidelines are so you stay in compliance in the event that you have to file a claim for repair compensation. If you wait until your roof is already leaking you may be paying the bill entirely out of your own pocket. So what should you do?
