As communities across Southwest Florida deal with the effects of Hurricane Ian, business owners and homeowners can get overwhelmed addressing property damage and returning to some sense of normalcy.
The Allstate Construction Roofing Inc. team has assembled a three-step guide you can follow to restore your roof as quickly as possible while minimizing out-of-pocket costs.
Step 1 — Inspect & Document Damages
You’ll first need to walk your property to inspect your roof and take pictures to document the damage.
There might be significant structural damage that only roofing professionals can notice, so avoid climbing on your roof and risking personal injury. Instead, stand further from your home and zoom in on your roof so you can take clear photos.
Damages You Should Document
- Check your roof and gutters for missing or damaged materials, like crumbled shingles, missing tiles, or separated downspouts.
- Note the cause of the damage, whether it’s a fallen tree, hail, or high wind speeds.
- Check for evidence of roof leaks inside your property, which could be water stains or a steady water drip.
Step 2 — Call Allstate Construction Roofing Inc.
We are a reputable and skilled roofing contractor, providing a comprehensive inspection to identify all damage to your roof and gutters.
Request Emergency Roof Tarping
If your roof has suffered major damage, Allstate Construction Roofing Inc. can place an emergency roof tarp to protect your property while you wait for your insurance claim to be approved.
Step 3 — File an Insurance Claim
When you file your claim, we can guide you through the process. Your policy coverage and how accurately you represent the damages will determine whether you receive approval for a roof replacement or repair.
Your insurance company will send an adjuster to review the damage, and your roofing contractor can meet with them to discuss the details of the damage.
