It’s spooky season…time for trick or treaters, jack-o-lanterns and things that go bump in the night! Unfortunately in Florida, it’s also the middle of hurricane season. When the wind howls and the trees sway during a tropical storm, your roof may fall victim to significant damage due to broken limbs and debris. Keep the monster effects of hurricane roof damage at bay by being proactive and doing the following:
Schedule a free roof inspection. October is a great month to schedule a roof inspection to protect your home from unexpected leaks and other issues that can arise from damage you can’t see.
Easily file insurance claims. One of the best benefits of getting a professional roof inspection is having the paperwork to make filing an insurance claim easy. After your roof inspection, you will receive a detailed report that includes an estimated cost of repair. Simply attach this damage report to your claim and send it off to your insurance company.
Get quick emergency roof repairs. After a storm hits, it’s critical that repairs are made to your roof in a timely manner. Unattended leaks can compromise the roof structure and shorten the lifespan of your roof. Hiring a professional will ensure that all repairs are made as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Extend your roof’s lifespan by taking preventative measures. A well-maintained shingle roof can last up to 20 years in Florida. But, if those shingles are missing or damaged, your roof’s underlayment will be exposed causing damage that could lead to needing a full roof replacement.
So, when you hear things that go bump in the night (like hail on the roof!) – or maybe even a spooky drip, drip, drip from the ceiling – keep the monsters at bay and contact Noland’s for a free inspection.
