Can you get storm damage on your roof in Arizona?

It’s possible to get storm damage on your roof in Arizona, but it’s unlikely. If you experience storm damage to your roof, you’ll want to file a claim with your insurance company as soon as possible. The cost of repairing or replacing a roof depends on the size and type of roof, so it’s difficult to give an estimate without more information. Generally speaking, though, repairing or replacing a roof can be expensive which is why you’ll want to get your insurance company to cover the damage. Roof Doctors can help! 

How Do I Know If I Have Roof Damage?

It’s always good to have an inspection on the roof right after a heavy storm to file an insurance claim if necessary right away. If you did not get an inspection you might be wondering how you can tell if you have roof damage. Part of the roof’s job is to keep water from getting in. However, the water may be coming in and causing mold and moss before you even notice a leak on the inside. A leak can be so small that it’s noticeable but enough to cause moisture. In other cases you might see your ceiling sagging. This can happen when you have a leak in your room but hasn’t torn through a layer of your ceiling. Causing a big bubble to form. If you do experience any of these issues, give Roof Doctors a call at (602) 892-9885 for help in getting your roof back in working condition. 


How To Protect Your Roof From Storm Damage

There is something you can do ahead of time to help protect your roof from having storm damage. That is to keep the trees around your home cut down. Many times a gust of wind can cause a branch to break and land directly on your roof. This can cause minor and severe damage. So it’s a good idea to get nearby trees trimmed down to avoid any damage from a broken tree branch.


When Should I File My Roof Insurance Claim After A Storm?

After a severe storm you’ll want to file an insurance claim for the storm damage on your roof as soon as possible. Some policies will have a certain amount of time you’ll have to file your claim. If you miss that period it can become harder to get your roof covered by your insurance provider.
