Fixing roof damage from a tree requires a systematic approach to ensure proper repairs and restore the integrity of your roof. The hardest part can be navigating an insurance claim. We help with all aspects of the claim. When it comes to actually fixing your roof, here are the general steps we follow to fix roof damage caused by a tree:
Assess the Damage: We will inspect your roof thoroughly, both from the exterior and interior, to identify all areas that require repair. We will also assess the structural integrity of the roof to ensure it is safe for repair work.
Remove Tree Debris: Clear the roof of any tree debris, including branches, leaves, and twigs. This may require a professional tree service.
Temporary Repairs: If there are punctures, holes, or exposed areas on the roof, we will apply temporary repairs to prevent water intrusion until permanent repairs can be made. Usually that means tarping your roof. Sometimes we Use roofing cement or sealants to cover the damaged areas, ensuring they are securely sealed to prevent further damage.
Replace Damaged Shingles or Roofing Material: If the tree damage has caused specific shingles or roofing materials to become dislodged, cracked, or damaged, they will need to be replaced. We remove the damaged shingles carefully, ensuring that we don’t cause additional damage, and install new shingles following proper roofing techniques. If you have a metal or flat roof, we would replace or seal damaged components.
Remember, it’s important to hire a professional roofing contractor experienced in storm damage repairs for an accurate assessment and proper repair techniques.
