Normally a roof will last 20-30 years. Unfortunately harsh weather cannot be controlled and can eat into that estimated roof lifetime. Beyond the normal wear and tear that daily exposure to the sun and rain showers cause, storms can in an instant change a roof, sometimes imperceptibly. Beyond obvious damage such as a tree limb that has fallen on the roof or missing roof shingles, a storm can hit a roof with nearly invisible pockmarks and other damage that is only visible to the eye of a professional. So even if one stands on a ladder looking at the shingles and doesn?t see damage, that doesn?t mean it isn?t there.

The first thing one should do after a heavy storm is to call several roofing companies who will provide free estimates. It?s important to get several estimates so one can weigh each roofer?s analysis carefully. Then a call to the homeowners insurance company is necessary so they can be apprised of the situation and come and evaluate the roof. After the insurance company assesses the roof they will discuss what they will pay towards the roofing job. The homeowner then selects a roofing contractor and work can begin. Depending on the situation and the homeowner?s deductible amount, the out of pocket expense shouldered by the homeowner will vary.

Over the years a roof will be exposed to general wear and tear and also some storms and heavy snow and ice accumulations. All of these stresses contribute to how a roof will wear over time. It?s important for homeowners to review their roof from time to time and also to call in roofing experts who can judge the roof?s condition, especially after storms. Unless obvious heavy damage is present, it?s not necessary to make a quick decision on a roofing repair company. Homeowners can weigh several estimates and then see what each roofer offers for the price charged. Ultimately it?s important to realize that most roof damage cannot be assessed without the help of a roofing expert. These experts can make necessary repairs or install a new roof which can get back to its job of protecting the home.
