Roofing Contractors Releases Blog Post on Importance of Roof Inspection for Storm Damage
TK Roofing & Gutters, a roofing contractor based in Akron, OH, has announced that they have recently published a blog post that explains why the roof should be inspected for damage after a storm. This is because a roof, which is the home’s first line of defense against the elements, would be very expensive to replace. Thus, having the roof inspected so that any needed repairs could be undertaken is essential. A roofing professional has a trained eye that can spot any damage that will have to be repaired.
Daryl Gentry, owner of TK Roofing & Gutters, says, “There are five reasons why having the roof inspected after a storm is important. These include the need to protect the roof’s structural integrity, to make it easy to start an insurance claim, to prevent more damage, to get estimates for repairs, and to ensure safety.”
He adds, “You should research roofing contractors to make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured. Consider checking reviews from each roofing professional, as well. Look for roofers that provide free inspection and estimates of your roof. Make sure you tell them the work you have and get all of the pertinent information. Then, request the quote in writing to ensure it covers everything.”
It is important to note that roof repair is typically less costly compared to roof replacement. However, the repair work has to be done as soon as possible, or the damage could worsen and result in more damages. Leaks aren’t the only sign of damage. A roofing professional can detect other red flags, such as mold growth, granule erosion, or peeling paint on the siding.
With regards to insurance, it is not easy to initiate an insurance claim. Roofing contractors could help in this regard by dealing directly with the insurance company on behalf of the homeowner.
A certified roofing contractor who will inspect the roof for storm damage will also be able to assess the damage and provide an estimate of the cost of the repair work that is required. An experienced roofing professional will know what to look for and ensure that all of the necessary repair work will be included in the estimate.
TK Roofing & Gutters is a locally operated roofing company in Akron, Ohio, which means that their roofing professionals are familiar with how the Ohio weather can negatively affect the roof, such as intense storms, strong winds, or heavy snowfalls. They offer a no-contact, no-cost roof inspection that will provide a detailed breakdown of the current health of the roof.
They can also provide roof replacement services. There are several signs that indicate it may be time to call for a roofing contractor. These include leaks, or signs of moisture in the home; broken, missing, or buckled shingles; damaged flashing around the vents or chimney; dark stains on the walls or ceiling; and lots of granules from the roof shingles at the end of the downspout.
Homeowners who have experienced the kind of work provided by TK Roofing & Gutters have given highly positive reviews. For example, Stephanie F. gave them five stars and said, “We had contacted a different roofer at first and was set to have the roof done, but they kept pushing us back, and I hadn't heard from them for weeks at a time. After two months of trying to get them to do our roof (and me getting pretty discouraged), an ad appeared on my FB for TK Roofing, and out of curiosity, I messaged them. I had a quote from TK the next day, and my roof was done within a week and a half. I am incredibly grateful to TK Roofing. They did an outstanding job. They are so professional and made the whole process very easy. And I am so excited to have our home looking so great! The roof looks perfect. I highly recommend these guys….”
