It’s important to keep in mind that yours isn’t the only business that’s been damaged, so insurance adjusters are often in short supply. We will help you get through this part and ensure your roofing repairs or replacement is made in a timely fashion and that all paperwork for your roof insurance claim is handled properly.
WAYS TO REDUCE STORM DAMAGE
Storms can wreak havoc on your business, and your roof is particularly vulnerable to damage. High winds, hail, and heavy rain can all cause significant damage to your roof, resulting in leaks, water damage, and other costly repairs. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk of roof damage during a storm. We’ve collected a few tips to help you protect your investment.
1. Keep your gutters clean.
Clean gutters are essential for proper water drainage from your roof. During a storm, clogged gutters can cause water to pool on your roof, increasing the risk of leaks and damage. Make sure your gutters are free of leaves and other debris before the storm hits.
2. Trim overhanging trees.
Trees that overhang your roof can pose a significant risk during a storm. Strong winds can cause branches to break off and fall onto your roof, causing damage or even puncturing holes in your roofing materials. To minimize this risk, it’s important to keep your trees trimmed and well-maintained.
3. Secure loose materials.
Loose materials, such as shingles, can become airborne during a storm and cause damage to your roof or nearby property. Make sure any loose materials are secured or removed before the storm hits. Landmark Roofing can inspect your roof and identify any loose materials that need to be addressed.
4. Choose durable roofing materials.
When choosing roofing materials, it’s important to consider their durability and ability to withstand storm damage. Some materials, such as metal, are more resistant to high winds, hail, and other types of storm damage. Talk to Landmark Roofing about the best materials for your area and your specific needs.
5. Schedule regular roof inspections
Regular roof inspections are essential for detecting any signs of damage before they become more severe. Landmark Roofing can identify any weak spots or damage to your roof and recommend the best course of action. This can help prevent more significant damage during a storm and save you money in the long run.
Reducing the risk of roof damage during a storm requires a combination of preventative measures and regular maintenance. By keeping your gutters clean, trimming overhanging trees, securing loose materials, choosing durable roofing materials, and scheduling regular inspections, you can help protect your roof from the elements and ensure the safety of your business. If you suspect your roof has been damaged from high-winds, hail, or debris, don’t take any chances.
