  • Proven Durability: With proper maintenance, cedar roofing can last longer than most other roofing materials. Purchasing a limited lifetime warranty is a great way to help keep your roof protected for years to come and minimize your anxiety over future repairs.
  • Natural Appeal: Cedar wood is a beautiful natural resource that can add a textured and organic look to any home. Cedar shakes are split unevenly giving them an added dimension of rugged and rustic character.

Storm Damage Roof Repair

Repairing A Storm Damaged Roof

Asphalt shingles

Mother Nature is the biggest threat to your roof. Constant exposure to the elements means that a roof is left to stand against the toughest tests weather can produce. High winds, heavy rain, snow and hail can all damage your roof, and ultimately your home. Your roof can even experience degradation at the hands of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation and ozone exposure.

With all of these different conditions that can affect your roof, you will need to trust a professional roofer to examine any potential damage to your roof after every powerful storm. However, every homeowner should be able to recognize a few signs of storm damage so that you can call a licensed roofing contractor to further evaluate any damage to your house.

One of the most common signs of significant roof damage after a storm is roofing materials that have become damaged or completely removed. We recommend walking around your property to check for any shingles or flashing that have been blown off of your roof and onto the ground. You may notice a few other obvious signs of damage such as hanging gutters or downed tree limbs on your roof.

Our roofers want to make your storm damage roof repairs as easy as possible for you and your family. This is why we work with all insurance companies and put our experience to work to get any paperwork filed quickly and properly.
