Spring has just begun and we experienced several storms from hail too hard rains and winds throughout winter. Storms can potentially cause damage to your roof and it’s a good idea to have your Roof Inspected if you think you could have sustained any damage at all. Read on to find out four benefits of having a roof inspection especially after a storm.
1. Find Damages You Can’t See from the Ground.
Damage from a storm isn’t always visible to the naked eye, and especially from the ground. Climbing a ladder and walking around your roof is quite dangerous if you don’t have the correct qualifications, not to mention insurances if you do come a cropper and injure yourself, who’s going to pay the bills then? Who will do the rest of the tedious chores? Sometimes it can be best to let us risk our necks, after all it’s what we have trained our whole life for, I’m sure there are plenty of safer maintenance jobs at ground level and if it’s hiding from the wife you are after, I saw a good spot behind the shed that looks much safer to sneak a beer (unless she catches you). But it’s best to leave the roof inspections to the professionals. They have the experience and expertise, knowing what to look for and how to properly walk on your roof without causing more damage.
2. Save You Money Down The Track.
After a storm, it’s easy to neglect or forget seemingly minor roof repairs, but those minor issues can very easily grow into huge problems if unattended. Not only can a roof inspection after severe weather identify storm damage, but it can also identify pre-existing problems that you may not have been previously aware of. Finding minor problems early on can save you big dollars in major repairs down the track. minor roof repairs are obviously much more affordable than re-roof or total roof replacement, not to mention the possible interior damage that it can potentially cause when a roof issue is left unattended.
3. Making Insurance Claims Easier.
To be able to claim for storm damage with your insurance, you’re going to need a professional roof inspection from a Reputable Roofing Company in Perth. Even if you are well aware that there is storm damage to your roof, you still need to call in a roofing contractor who will provide a detailed inspection with a report that you can then provide to your insurance company in the claim process. You are 90% much more likely to get the correct reimbursement with a professional roofer on your side instead of taking the word of the insurance assessor whose job it is to completely downplay any damage and blame incorrect maintenance.
4. Just For Peace of Mind.
Think about the satisfaction you will feel after having a thorough roof inspection by a roofing expert. Damage or no damage, a roof inspection will make sure that you are immediately aware of any roofing issues whether they be major, minor, or in between. It will give you peace of mind knowing that your roof is in or can easily be in great shape and has the best chance of standing up to any future severe weather that might get thrown at it. It’s quite a comforting feeling to know that your roof will remain intact and shelter your family from that next big Perth storm.
