Hidden Storm Damage

FidusMany times we’ve had to opportunity to go into a neighborhood after a storm to repair a damaged roof. The damage is often obvious, missing shingles and leaks. Typically on the job site, a neighbor will say something to the affect that they are lucky they didn’t get any damage. After explaining to them that they cannot be sure that their roof is not damaged unless a qualified person gives them a full inspection, the conversation typically turns into the “please inspect my roof” area, where we often find damage.

Remember that just because you don’t see a leak inside your home doesn’t mean that it isn’t leaking. Many times the leak will slowly become more significant, and all the while water is getting into your attic and/or walls. This can mean long term damage that can be expensive to repair. Catching this damage early can mean an enormous difference in repair costs.

The Fidus Group is GAF certified and highly awarded for their expertise in roof inspection. If there is damage, we’ll find it. We can (and have in the past) even work with your insurance company in filing the claim. We’ll even meet with the insurance adjuster to show them the evidence of damage, and assist you in the claim process. Fidus will work with your insurance adjuster to get you a maximum claim value on your roofing and siding, and we’ll be there to answer your questions as we progress.

After any strong storm, you should always inspect your roof to ensure that there is no damage to any component. Unseen damage can mean that your roof is leaking but simply hasn’t produced a leak into the interior of your home where visible.

If you see ANY damage in your neighborhood, or if your home is damaged in a storm, call us immediately so that we can inspect your roof to make sure there is no damage, or to devise a plan to stop any further damage.

Your insurance company will assign an adjuster and they will schedule a time to meet at your home. We will be happy to meet with your adjuster to ensure that any damage done is included in the claim. Fidus is here to help you any way we can. Give us a call today to schedule your storm damage assessment… you’ll be glad you did. 904-230-5548.
