Storm Damage? Hire a Professional Roofing Contractor

Spring is here in Des Moines, and with spring, comes storms. From heavy rain to hail to strong winds, Central Iowa weather has it all. In fact, in early March, the southside of Des Moines – especially zip codes 50320 and 50009 – saw heavy damage from unprecedented tornados and the accompanying wind. If your home happens to be in the path of one of these systems, it’s smart to have a professional contractor assess your roof damage. Here’s why. 

Hire a Professional Roofer to Assess Roof Damage

  • They can assess small or invisible damage. While you might be able to notice significant damage on your own, a professional is trained to notice slight or invisible damage. They know where to look and what to look for on both the exterior and the interior of your roof.
  • They understand insurance companies. Before you submit an insurance claim, you’ll need a professional roof inspection. Reputable roofing companies can properly assess damage. They know how insurance companies work and what needs to be done for a successful, seamless claim.  
  • It will save money over time. If you choose to skip a professional roof inspection after a strong storm, then prepare yourself to spend some money down the road. Small or invisible problems can quickly escalate to much bigger problems. Regular maintenance and repairs can vastly extend the lifespan of your roof and save you a significant amount of money.
