What counts as a roofing emergency?

Your roof is essential for the structural stability and comfort of your home. As such, any sort of roof damage should be addressed as soon as possible. However, there are certain situations that should be deemed “emergencies” and handled immediately. Roofing emergencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Burned sections of roofing. If any part of your roof was burned in a fire or explosion, it’s important to vacate the premises until a professional can assess the damage. Burned roofs are susceptible to collapse, so it is unsafe to remain in a home where any portion of the roof has been damaged by fire.
  • Missing shingles. Most asphalt shingles remain in place in the face of 60 mile per hour winds. Anything beyond that can rip shingles off your roofing deck. Missing shingles leave the wood of your roofing deck vulnerable to moisture issues and major leaks, so replace missing shingles as soon as you notice them.
  • Large, foreign objects on your roof. Strong winds can cause trees, branches, and other objects to land on your roof. Because it is hard to tell how much of an impact the object has had on your roof’s structural stability, it’s best to leave until a professional can inspect your roof and see if it’s safe to remain in the home.

We Can Help You File Your Insurance Claim

Even in the worst of circumstances, there’s something to be thankful for, and such is the case with roofing emergencies. The good news is that, in most instances, your insurance company will cover the cost of repairing or replacing a roof damaged by an emergency. In general, most companies cover the cost if the damage was brought on suddenly by an act of nature or some other unforeseen event outside of your control.

If you’re interested in filing an insurance claim, it’s important to do so within a year of the damage date. First, call your insurance company. They will direct you on what to do next. Sometimes, they will send an insurance adjuster to your home or business to assess the damage. Other times, they will ask you to call a local roofing company and schedule an inspection. In any case, act fast and be sure to collect photographic evidence that could be helpful in getting your claim approved.
