It is recommended that you hire certified contractors to make home improvements before and after hurricane season. When you contact a roofer in Fort Lauderdale before, you can make necessary improvements, so your roof isn’t susceptible to storm damage. Your roof may have weak points that you don’t even know about, which can result in damaged shingles, roof leaks, and structural damage. For this reason, and many others, you should hire a contractor at the start of the season.
Now that hurricane season is thankfully coming to an end and South Florida endured relatively unscathed. If your roof has experienced mild damage because you did not contact a roofer at the start of hurricane season, contact J&K Roofing. We are Hollywood’s premier roofing company, specializing in both residential and commercial roofing in both residential and commercial roofing projects. We can handle all repairs, no matter what type of roof you have. To prevent this next year, we recommend that you contact our team before hurricane season, as a preventative measure is typically less expensive than repairs.
What to do Before You Call Us?
Before you contact our team, safely inspect your roof to identify roof damage (don’t go on the roof). You may want to take pictures of all damage and areas where you suspect water damage may occur in case your insurance policy will compensate you.
This hurricane season left South Florida relatively unscathed, so you may not need to worry about surveying the exterior of your property for hazards, such as fallen trees and downed power lines. However, you should inspect your gutters, gutter guards, and downspouts to see if any damage has been done.
You should also take this opportunity to look inside your house to see if you notice roof damage. You may see water spots on the ceilings or walls, water stains, sagging areas, and leaking from the ceiling.
Leave the Roof Inspection to the Professionals
Once you have proof that a storm caused damage to your roof, it’s time to contact J&K Roofing. We do not recommend that you go on the roof to inspect it yourself. If you go on top of a damaged roof, you can exacerbate the problem, not to mention seriously injure yourself. Our team will inspect all areas of your roof, notify you of the damages and necessary repairs, then restore your roof to perfect working order.
While on the ground, if you want to continue to document the damage for insurance purposes, you will have a decent view of:
- Damaged shingles
- Debris on the roof
- Damaged vents
- Changes to your roof after the storm
These pictures are all possible to take on the ground. So, whatever you do, do not go up on the roof. Our team will work diligently to put your mind at ease and restore your roof to its pre-loss condition.
