When & How to Inspect Your Roof
A DRY HOME IS A HEALTHY HOME
Archway Roofing recommends property owners contact a licensed and insured roofing company for an inspection when: major discoloration can be seen from the ground, after a major hail storm, when water is entering the structure, after a strong wind storm, once the roof turns 15 years old or if you have concerns regarding the roof.
Finding signs of water damage in the living spaces of your home or business is likely the result of a roof system failure over a prolonged period of time. The roof system was likely compromised months ago and water has soaked through several building materials finally making it's way to the living areas of your home or business. Major leaks have been know to be caused by a single nail hole or a build up of debris in valleys or gutters. Archway has even seen water enter a structure, run 60 feet down a rafter before showing up as a stain on the other side of the house.
Archway Roofing recommends property owners review their insurance policy. Damage caused by hail, wind or blown debris are generally covered under an insurance policy. However, some policies may require the property owner to act within one - five years or risk foregoing replacement coverage. If you think you have damage that may be covered, before filing a claim, Archway Roofing advises you to read our claims guide first. Click on "Roof Tips" tab located at the top for more information.
