Roof Repair and Restoration
What is the difference between a certified roof inspection and a free estimate?
With a certified roof inspection, we will be able to properly document all inspected damage and begin the process of filing the paperwork for your insurance claim. Insurance companies will not go forward with your claim until you have had a certified roof inspection.
A free estimate does not include all of the insurance documentation process. We will come out and inspect the damage to your home and will give you a quote as to how much it will cost to fix it. This free estimate does not allow us to begin the insurance process, instead, it will set your claim process behind because a second insurance inspection will need to be completed by a certified inspector when you are filing your insurance paperwork.
If you need help filing your paperwork, Lady on the Roof has certified inspectors for insurance claims that can walk you through the process every step of the way. Contact Us today to get the process started.
Can part of my roof be repaired?
Yes, it is possible to repair an isolated area where obvious, visible damage has occurred. Lady on the Roof can likely find replacements that are close in profile and possibly color. However, it is highly likely that the replacement tiles or metal will need to be painted in order for it to come close to matching. You will need to maintain this item to recolor every few years.
What kind of damage should I be looking for?
When large amounts of wind catch your roof just right, it can life large pieces of the roof off of the roof deck. This pulls the fasteners away from securing your roof in place. When your fasteners are dislodged, it leaves a small penetration entryway for water to come in. This creates water damage, condenses your insulation, and rots your wood. If you can see areas where fasteners have dislodged, or if you find them on the ground around your house, make a list of what you've seen. You can then discuss with a Lady on the Roof representative when they come to document your insurance claim.
Sometimes, different materials a joined together on a roof and glued together to create a waterproof layer. When very windy, it can pull the layers apart and crack the seal. This can also create water seepage and if not fixed, it provides a perfect place for mold to rapidly grow. Look for areas on your roof where layers are missing or where there are pieces of material dislodged from their original placement.
