Weather events cause catastrophic amounts of damage to our nation on a yearly basis. The most common types of weather damage we get in the southeast US is wind damage, hail damage and fallen trees. These types of damages can create much bigger problems if left unaddressed. At the first sign of wind, hail or tree damage, you should have your roof inspected by a professional to assess the severity and urgency of the damage.
The easiest way to spot wind damage is to notice any lifted shingles on your roof. Once a shingle becomes loose, it will appear lifted and flap up and down when the wind blows. You might also notice that shingles have blown completely off of your roof and have landed in your yard. Missing and wind-blown shingles will let water easily enter your home during future rainstorms, causing a domino effect of future damage.
Insurance companies are notorious for extending coverage for spot repairs for wind damaged roofs, leaving you with not only a polka-dot looking roof, but a roof that has dozens of areas susceptible to failed repairs. What exactly does this mean? As shingles age, they not only become thinner and more susceptible to wind damage, but they become more brittle and less workable.
Precision Public Adjusting has a team of adjusters with backgrounds in roofing. This is powerful because not only do we know when roofs actually need replacement but we know when the insurance company rightfully owes for it based on your policy. It is important to remember: Insurance companies do not owe for wear and tear, age, improper installation or manufactures defects, but they do owe for covered perils such as wind and hail damage.
