The first line of defense against a natural disaster is your roof. This also makes it the most vulnerable part of your house. If strong winds cause roof destruction, it can be very distressing dealing with the aftermath. The information in this article will help you through the process of roof repair and restoration.

Be cautious when looking for a roofing contractor because, following natural disasters, unprofessional operators often prey on distraught homeowners. Be skeptical about low bids. As the saying goes: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Cost is just one criterion – professionalism, reputation, and quality workmanship are essential. Before any work begins, take some time to evaluate potential candidates.

A professional roof repair contractor should:

  • Have references in your state (if the contractor can only provide out-of-state references, be wary).
  • Be licensed and/or bonded.
  • Provide proof of insurance.
  • Have an effective safety program.
  • Have financial stability.
  • Give you a written proposal.
  • Have a permanent place of business.
  • Have a good knowledge of roofing systems.
  • Provide evidence of professionalism in the roofing industry, such as association membership, manufacturer certifications, and proof of training.
  • Offer warranties.

The next important step is to file an insurance claim. Make copies of your homeowner’s policy and call your insurance provider as soon after the storm as possible. The insurer will tell you what to do next. If a widespread disaster has occurred, your insurer might establish special procedures. If you have had a temporary roof repair job done, keep the receipts.
