Call Your Roofer for Emergency Repairs
There are many different reasons that call for professional roofing. Stormy weather, fire, and even rodents are common roofing hazards that can leave you with an emergency on your hands. When you notice damage to your roof that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible, it can send you into a panic. The rule of thumb is to calm down and contact your insurance company. KangaRoof in Austin can usually help you with emergency repairs.
What Qualifies as an Emergency?
An emergency involving your roof is any sort of damage that compromises the structural integrity and the roof’s ability to keep out water. This can happen any number of ways, but common occurrences include:
- High winds blowing shingles off
- Tree branches rubbing on the roof
- Tree branches falling on the house
- Fire inside or outside the home
- Rodents chewing their way inside
Emergencies are not limited to these situations, however. Any damage that puts your home at risk for water damage or exposure to the elements needs to be taken care of immediately.
What to Do
When you notice the damage, you should first call a roofing contractor such as KangaRoof in Austin to assess the damage. We will determine if you should file a claim with your insurance company. Most repairs are smaller than your deductible so this will help you eliminate a claim from your record. If you do need to file a claim, a reliable roofer can assist you in determining the scope of the damage. The agency may even point you in the direction of a reliable roofer such as KangaRoof in Austin. For safety reasons we are not able to come out in the middle of a storm, however, so if your damage occurs in the midst of inclement weather, you may need to wait for it to pass first.
Beware of scammers if you suffer damage during a storm or from a fire. There are some people out there who try to capitalize on the misfortunes of others. Make sure to stay calm and contact your insurance company. Beware of advice from strangers who show up in the aftermath of a disaster and offer services that seem too good to be true.
