What to Expect During Storm Damage Restoration

Jul 16, 2018

Storms can do serious damage to your home. Even just getting battered by storm winds can permanently damage your roof, tearing off the shingles and damaging the gutters. There are a few things to keep in mind once you’ve set up
roof restoration service with your local roofer. Keep these in mind so that you’re always in the know during this important process.

Viking Contractors, LLC shares a few things to expect during your storm damage restoration project.

Expect an Examination

What most homeowners don’t know is that storm damage can refer to anything from mild wind damage to damage as a result of torrential downpour. As such, your prospective
storm restoration specialist will have to perform an in-depth inspection and examination to assess the true extent of your roof’s storm damage. Expect the crew to poke around your attic or ceiling as well, since most storm-related leaks manifest there.

The Restoration Is Messy

In some cases, we’ll have to remove the storm-damaged parts of the roof, such as the wooden structure and the underlayment. This can get really messy, so it’s a good idea to cover all of your furniture and store the valuables another place temporarily.

The Roof Is More Than Just the Shingles

Storm damage restoration isn’t restricted to just replacing the water damaged shingles. This also involves updating and replacing the flashings, repairing the soffits and fascias and restoring the damaged gutters. While they may seem like auxiliary components of the roof, they play a key role in the safety and security of the entire system.
