What to Do if Your Roof was Damaged in a Winter Storm

Winter Storm Roof Damage in DFW

Mother Nature decided to pay Texas a visit last week and brought a dangerous winter storm in her wake. Texans felt temperatures and experienced conditions that hadn’t been witnessed since the 1980s.

Unfortunately, this means that excessive snow and collected ice resulted in many homes dealing with structural damage to their roof. If your roof was especially hit hard by this storm and you feel like there could be some damage involved, follow these steps that will ensure your roof continues to protect you for years to come.

Clear Snow and Ice From Your Roof

Getting up on your roof to shovel off snow and ice is a dangerous accident waiting to happen. If you can start to clear off your roof of debris and snow with an extendable roof rake, you’ll already have taken the first steps to repair your storm damages

However, if ice dams have already begun to form, you may need to rely on a roofing professional to safely scale your roof and clear the wintery mess from your rooftops.

Schedule an Inspection for Extensive Storm Damage

Once you’ve cleared the snow from your roof, we don’t recommend walking around on your own to inspect for damage. A local roofer or storm damage contractor can help you accurately assess any damages through a thorough roof inspection.

Once an inspection is complete, you’ll have a clear understanding of what damages were incurred, what repairs or replacements are needed for your roof, and approximately how much the project will cost.

An inspection from a reliable roofing company will help your family save money in both your immediate situation and the long-term. An experienced roofer can even help walk you through the steps you’ll need to take to get repairs or a roof replacement covered by your homeowner’s insurance.

Find Out if Emergency Roof Repairs Are Covered by Insurance

When it comes to emergency roofing repairs, insurance companies can be a fickle force to deal with. Once the storm has passed and you’ve had an inspector come out to assess and document your damages, reach out to your insurance company and make sure that they cover the types of damages your problem entails.

If insurance doesn’t cover the entire cost of your repairs, your roofer can help you find a way to cover your roofing expenses.

Hire a Trusted Roofing Company for Repairs

If you haven’t already planned ahead for a roofing emergency and looked into a reliable roofing company, now is the time to get serious about your selections. Avoid traveling storm chasers and trust a local roofing company that knows what a great roof in Dallas-Fort Worth needs.

A local roofer will help you find the best materials for harsh weather conditions and can ensure that your emergency repairs are the right solutions that secure your roof for future storms.
