Do you have property in this damaged area?
Why to File:
Even if you were one of the fortunate costal residents who’s home sustained minimal damage, you could have damage that you are unaware of. Strong winds can create stress points on a roof that can compromise the integirty of the roof and lead to interior damage that may not show immediately due to a roof that is not functioning as it should. This can start by just a few missing shingles or shingles sticking up. These are reasons to get a professional inspection right away.
During the inspection, Alden Roofing will look for debris that may have blown onto or across the roof, tree branches and other large debris that can scratch or gouge roofing materials. We will also check the gutters and downspouts as debris from the storm can clog them. If these damages go unrepaired it will cause further damage to the property. We not only perform a roof inspection for the purposes of the services we provide, but we also perform a full property inspection so you are aware of any and all damages to your property that need attention.
THERE IS NO EXTENTION TO FILE A CLAIM. THE DEADLINE IS SET AT 1 YEAR FROM THE DATE OF THE STORM.
