Hurricane Irma ripped through the state of Florida and caused millions in damage to homes and businesses alike. The heavy rains and pounding winds reaching over 100 mph in most places were enough to cause significant damage to roofs in particular. From lifted tiles to debris swirling around and causing damage, your roof may have taken quite a bit of damage. Our team at Cohen & Associates Public Adjusters understands the stress caused by hurricane roof damage so we put together a blog about how to best go about getting your roof looked at. For example, did you know that when tile roofs are damaged, it may be difficult to get an exact match to replace the tiles so a full roof replacement may the only option. How about that proving the damage in an accurate report can be crucial during the insurance claims process? Our South Florida public adjusters here at Cohen & Associates are here to make your life a little easier when life throws you a curve ball.
Hurricane Roof Damage Help
Roof damage is not something to take lightly. Even a single lifted tile or shingle could cause water to seep into your home and that’s a whole other headache. Getting your roof looked at as soon as possible is important, but it’s also important to make sure you’re getting a licensed and professional roofer to look at all the damage and write a detailed report for your claim. Like we talked about above, there are things that professional roofers and insurance claims adjusters know about damage that you probably don’t. If you have a tile roof, for example, a few missing, lifted or broken tiles could be tough to replace. Getting the exact color correct may not be an option. In cases like that, there could be cause to have your whole roof replaced. If the color isn’t right, it’s going to look strange and you don’t deserve that as a homeowner. Working with the best roofers and public adjusters in South Florida is a great idea for anyone whose home was damaged as a result of the storm. An accurate report written by real experts can go a long way in getting you the compensation you deserve for a storm.
