Storm Damage Roof Repair
With all the storms that pass through Austin, it should come as no surprise that homes and businesses alike receive damage from hail, wind, and more. In fact, Texas is among the states with the most hail and wind storms. While that is indeed bad news, Transcendent Roofing of Austin is here to help you assess and repair any damage caused by a storm. We take care of problems of all size, whether you just need a few shingles replaced after they flew off in the wind or need the whole roof replaced due to excessive wind moving tree branches around.
Inspecting For Storm Damage
We always begin a visit to your home with a very thorough inspection of the roof to determine what damage was caused by the storm. While most home and business owners only think to contact us if they have noticed issues like leaks or loose shingles after a hail or wind storm, it is actually smart to have your roof inspected following any truly severe storm. Much of the damage remains invisible to the untrained eye, especially without climbing up on the roof.
Our professionals at Transcendent Roofing of Austin will not only be able to spot the damage, but also to determine if it was caused by the recent storm or another issue. In some cases, those roofs that experience storm damage have an underlying issue that made them more susceptible to the wind or hail. Other times, however, it is simply a case of bad luck for the property owner.
An impact mark from hail on your roof, for example, isn’t necessarily a cause for concern unless the shingles are aging and simply not strong enough to stand up to this type of force. In that case, we may suggest replacing the shingles so you are prepared for the next hail storm.
In addition to the inspection, we will also ask you whether you have noticed anything that led you to call us – such as loose shingles. Although we will always do a thorough inspection, any information you can give us regarding storm damage makes it easier to spot the problem or problems.
Completing Roof Repairs Following Storms
After we have determined the damage from the storm, our team at Transcendent Roofing of Austin can begin the repairs. If possible, we will repair individual sections of the roof, but a full replacement may also be necessary. That is more likely in the case of severe damage; multiple loose, missing, or broken shingles across the roof; or a roof that has simply aged too much to be worth fixing. While repairs are cheaper initially, remember that completely replacing the roof will provide results for a longer period of time, saving you money overall.
We will always do our best to work with your insurance company as well. In many cases, your building’s insurance will cover some or all of the damage due to hail and wind. We will do our best to maximize the amount that your insurance covers as well as to be upfront as to the expected costs.
