Do you have storm or hail damage?
A roof may be substantially damaged by hail, even though the actual shingles appear to still be in place after the storm. Although the storms occurred last week, the damage may not cause leaking until well after the storm. This is the time that it’s crucial to have a qualified roofing expert examine your roof and fully evaluate the storm and hail damage to your property and assist you in filing an insurance claim. Even if damage to your roof may not seem severe at the moment, it may eventually lead to additional leaks and problems down the road.
