When your area gets hit by a storm, regardless of its size, it will do a lot of damage to your composite shingle roof. Strong winds, torrential hail, and rain can wreak havoc on your roof, which will compromise the integrity of your entire house. On top of that, you also have to deal with toppled trees, which are known for destroying roofs which stand in their way.
After the storm has done its damage, you will need to assess the extent of it. Even if you have replaced your composite shingle roof before, you will still need the help of a professional inspector. Why? Here are three important reasons which will show you why you need a professional roof inspector!
Easier to claim insurance
We all know how tiring it can be when you have to claim insurance from companies. If you choose to claim insurance without the help of a professional roof inspector, you will have to wait for a longer time. On top of that, you will have to depend on the estimates of the inspector employed by the insurance company for your insurance claim.
However, when you hire a professional roof inspector, it becomes easy to claim insurance. They will give you the exact estimates and the extent of damage on your composite shingle roof.
Detect minor damage
While it is easy to detect major damage on your composite shingle roof, it isn’t the same when it is minor. For example, if one of the shingles has a crack in the corner, it is extremely hard for you to detect it with your untrained eyes. You also won’t be able to make out if you have loose shingles. If you ignore minor problems now, they will become huge issues in the future. As a result of this, you will have to spend a large sum of money to replace/fix your composite shingle roof.
The last advantage of having a professional roof inspector to take a look at your house is that you can rely on his/her analysis. As they are trained to detect problems with composite shingle roofs, he/she can analyze yours with greater depth and precision. Also, they will give you cost-effective solutions so that you can fix your composite shingle roof as soon as possible.
These are the three reasons why you should hire a professional roof inspector to assess storm damage on your composite shingle roof.
