Frequently Asked Questions about Storm Damage

Hurricanes, wind storms, hail storms and many other storms can cause significant damage to your roof. We wanted to take some time to answer some common questions about our our storm damage services:

I might have storm damage, where do I begin my reroof process?

The nature of the damage caused by storms can vary depending on the type of storm. Take a walk around the perimeter of your home and check for signs of damage. If you are unsure if your roof is damage, call a roofing professional. One thing to remember is before you start your insurance process, call Reliant Roofing to come and do a free inspection. We will perform a thorough inspection of the roof and we will let you know if you should pursue an insurance claim.

My neighborhood was just hit by a storm but my roof looks fine. Why do I need to have it checked?

Storm damage can be tough to see at times from the ground level. Your shingles may be pulling up and it not even be visible. Some leaks, especially in crickets or around flashing can go invisible to a homeowner for years. Unlike many types of roofing damage, hail damage is especially not always obvious, especially if you have a textured roofing material such as dimensional or architectural shingles. The outer roofing material may have shallow dents that aren’t readily visible. If these dents are deep enough to “bruise” the waterproofing layer, the smallest puncture could allow rainwater through the roof deck and into the attic, causing significant water damage.

Why can’t I inspect my own roof?

Many homeowners like the DIY aspect of some contract work. Roofing should not be one of the. Without proper safety gear and a trained eye, getting on a roof can be extremely dangerous, for you and your roof. While you may think you can save some money by going
this route, we highly discourage it. The majority of homeowners lack the safety knowledge and in-depth roofing expertise to perform the work properly and can easily make matters worse. Turn to an experienced professional like Reliant Roofing, who knows how
to conduct a roof inspection safely and thoroughly and can offer educated solutions.
