Here at SERVPRO we are always ready and available for Storm Roof Tarps and to help customers as a First Responder on any leak caused by Roof issues.

What we are finding is that when any water damage happens inside your home and the finding is an issue with the roof whether it be a shingle or tile roof, your insurance company often struggles in approving coverage for water damage repairs when there was not a recent heavy wind or storm that freshly caused the damage to the roof that leaked water in to your home. Insurance Companies feel that a homeowner is responsible for home maintenance and to have your roof checked from year to year for any type of normal malfunction to the materials that as a home or property owner, should be maintained.

This means that if your home has a roof leak that causes damage to the inside just after a heavy storm and it is clearly visible the roof is damaged due to the recent storm, its much easier to get approval for coverage.

SERVPRO is very happy to provide service and repairs either way, however once an insurance company deems the issue to be from lack of maintenance and not from damage, the cost gets billed to the home owner.

This means regular roof checks are a smart idea.
