What You Need to Know about Roof Disaster Recovery

If your home was damaged during a recent hurricane, you may be facing a flooded main floor, ruined furnishings and belongings, and a messy cleanup. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all you have to contend with, so skilled and experienced assistance is invaluable to help you navigate your home’s recovery in a targeted manner. One building component that needs immediate attention is a damaged roof because a functional, watertight roof is essential to protect your home from further harm.

How Having a Roof Disaster Recovery Plan Can Help

It’s vital to implement an effective recovery plan as quickly as possible after a storm wreaks havoc on your home to protect your investment and help get your life back on track. A roof disaster recovery strategy that includes an in-depth inspection, emergency roof repair, and an estimate for restoration gives you a clear path forward. It ensures you meet the requirements of your homeowner’s insurance. At Kelly Roofing, we’ve developed a comprehensive roof disaster recovery plan that covers three crucial elements:

1. Certified Inspection

The first step we tackle is performing an inspection that gives your insurer the verified damage report they need to process and pay your claim. Our inspection is insurance company-certified, so it eliminates what can be a lengthy wait time to have an insurance company adjuster assess the damage to your roof. Our certified report speeds up the claims process for a less stressful and faster resolution.

2. Emergency Repair Service

Homeowners’ insurance always stipulates that you make all reasonable efforts to mitigate any further damage to your home. We ensure you comply with your insurance requirements and help avert any additional damage to your roof and home’s interior by quickly dispatching an emergency crew to make temporary repairs, like installing plywood and/or tarps to prevent further water intrusion.

3. Repair or Replacement Estimate

Once we’ve completed our inspection and secured your roof temporarily, we’ll provide you with a detailed cost estimate to restore your roof to its pre-storm condition. Oftentimes, an insurer will authorize replacement when more than 25 percent of a roof is damaged. If you need a full replacement, you have an opportunity to upgrade to a more weather- and wind-resistant type of roofing, which can help limit future damage and lower your insurance premiums too.
