Be sure your next roof inspection is done by a qualified inspector. Professional Roof Inspections are almost always done from the roof! Very rarely can a thorough inspection be done with binoculars or even drones. There is no replacement for eyes up close. Be sure you have an inspection done the right way. Sands Enterprises has Licensed Property Adjusters on staff to perform every inspection. If we tell you that you have damage we will always be available to meet your adjuster and show him/her our concerns!
Hail and wind damage is often times difficult to spot even when your standing on the roof. Whomever you choose to do an inspection needs to look closely. Sometimes the damage caused by hail can only be seen from the back side of the shingle in the form of “broken matting”. Remember that your roof doesn’t have to be leaking to be damaged Hail damage rarely produces leaks but often shortens the life of your roof significantly. Your inspection should also include a thorough inspection of your siding , fascia, windows and screens.
Tips to remember
- Your contractor should be willing to meet your Insurance Adjuster.
- Inspections need to be done from the roof not the ground.
- Is your inspector familiar with insurance claims?
