After A Storm

When a severe storm passes through, it can often be difficult for homeowners to determine if their roof has been damaged. While the very worst storm and tornado damage is readily visible to the naked eye, most damage caused by hail or wind often goes unnoticed, leaving nothing more than what appears to be a minor indentation.

Unfortunately, even small amounts of damage can harm the surface of your roof and lead to premature deterioration. As such, the experts at Advanced Exteriors recommend having your roof inspected if you think there might be any damage whatsoever. Our team of professionals will gladly come out and check your roof for any damage, including, but not limited to: torn or missing asphalt shingles; dented metals; broken or out of place tiles or shakes; or water infiltration into the attic caused by defective roof decking. Each of these issues, caused by excessive wind gusts or high impact hail, are relatively minor and easy to fix when caught early, but left undetected they can snowball into much larger and more costly repairs.

This is why we recommend having your roof checked out by a licensed roofing professional if you have any reason to suspect storm related damage. When you contact Advanced Exteriors, we will give you an honest opinion regarding the state of your roof. If there’s no damage, we’ll let you know that. We definitely aren’t in the business of doing unnecessary work. And if it does needs repairs, we will let you know and make some recommendations regarding how to proceed.

Should you choose to move forward with a claim, you will need to notify your insurance company directly before we can begin to do any non-emergency work. If necessary, we can meet with your insurance adjuster and provide them with a damage report for your claim file. Throughout the process, we are available to answer any questions you or your insurance carrier may have regarding the roof damage. Furthermore, with more than 35 years of experience, Advanced Exteriors has long-standing relationships with many insurance companies covering homes in the greater St. Louis area, and are known throughout the community for handling repairs efficiently and effectively so your home can return to normal as quickly as possible after a loss.
