Winter weather can be hard on your roof, so if you have damage; consult with your insurance company to see if the winter storm damage is covered. Insurance will more than likely cover the harsh treatment of your roof during the winter months. You may see things like:
- When too much snow falls onto your roof, your roof can collapse from the damage.
- Melting snow seeping into your attic from the ice dam.
- Trees falling onto your roof.
If you are concerned about your roof, call Down Under Roofing for a free no obligation inspection. Our team works with insurance companies all the time. We can help you navigate the paperwork that is needed before we even begin work.
Insurance companies will often ask how old the roof is and whether it was maintained regularly. Don’t let this be a reason your insurance claim is denied when winter storms come through and cause horrible damage to a roof from snow, ice and strong winds.
If your insurance claim is approved, there is often a deductible that will need to be paid.
Make sure that you are taking preventive measures to ensure that your home and roof are well taken care of during the winter months. Cleaning gutters will help prevent ice dams from forming.
And above all, when you see the beginning signs of a roof leak, call a professional to help you get it fixed right away. The longer you wait, the more damage it will cause, and the more it will cost.
