Signs You Need a Roof Repair

  • Damaged Shingles: Cracked, warped or missing shingles indicate your roof’s protective layer is compromised. Damaged spots need repairs to prevent larger damage down the road.
  • Interior Leaks: Water streaks or stains on your ceilings and walls are clear signs of leaking. Leaks need to quickly be addressed before they escalate.
  • Deteriorated Trim: Rotting fascia boards or rusted flashing means water is getting past your roof’s outer layer. Damage to fascia or flashing should be repaired ASAP to restore your roof’s water protection.
  • Excessive Granule Loss: If you notice a significant amount of shingle granules accumulating in your gutters or on the ground, it’s a telltale sign of excessive wear. Your roof will be less protective without its protective granules.
  • Ice Dam Formation: Ice dams hanging off your roofline in the winter indicate your attic insulation is compromised and allowing indoor heat to melt snow and refreeze dripping water.
  • Rising Energy Costs: If your utility costs suddenly soar for no apparent reason, damage to your roof could be causing insufficient attic insulation.

Common Causes of Roof Damage in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania’s varying climate poses constant dangers to residential roofs. From powerful storms to icy conditions, roofing systems must endure a range of harsh elements year-round. Being aware of the primary causes of roof damage allows you to spot issues early and make timely repairs.

High Winds Intense wind gusts during storms can tear shingles from roofs or lift them up and leave the roof exposed. Flying debris carried by high winds can also strike and damage shingles or the underlying roof structure.

Hail Impacts Hailstones slamming into roof surfaces can dent and crack shingles, significantly reducing their protecting capacity. After a hailstorm, a professional roof inspection is vital to identify any necessary repairs to prevent future water damage.

Heavy Rainfall Sustained, heavy rains can overwhelm gutter systems, causing water to pool on the roof surface and find weakened areas to leak inside. Even minor existing roof damage can rapidly escalate when combined with heavy precipitation. The granular surface of asphalt shingles also gradually erodes under repeated heavy rain exposure.

Ice Formation Freezing temperatures and inadequate attic insulation create ice dams and block proper water drainage. Ice dams force melting snow and ice to accumulate on the roof, where the trapped water can eventually penetrate and severely damage roof components from underneath.

Does homeowners insurance cover roof repairs in Pennsylvania?

While homeowners insurance policies typically cover roof damage caused by storms, fires or other sudden incidents, they generally exclude repairs necessitated by normal wear and tear, aging or improper installation. Coverage details vary, and you may find certain roof issues do not qualify for reimbursement. Carefully review your policy details or consult directly with your insurance provider for clarity on what specific roof scenarios are covered.

How to Report Storm Damage to Your Insurance Company

  1. Notify Your Provider: Contact your insurance company as soon as possible after discovering storm damage to your roof. Acting quickly improves your chance of a timely response and initiates the claims process.
  2. Get a Professional Inspection: Contact Certitude Home Improvements for a comprehensive inspection and detailed assessment of the damage. Documentation of the damage will support your claim and give the insurance company a clear understanding of the necessary repairs and costs.
  3. Schedule an Adjuster’s Inspection: Your insurance company will send an adjuster to evaluate the storm damage in person. The adjuster will thoroughly examine the roof and determine the estimated repair costs covered by your policy.
  4. Proceed with Approved Repairs: Once your claim is approved, you can move forward with the recommended roof repairs. Be sure to retain all invoices and receipts, you will need to submit them to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
  5. Final Inspection: After the repairs are completed, your insurance company may arrange for a final inspection to verify the work was performed per the approved claim.

Steps to Take When Your Roof is Leaking

A leaking roof is a serious issue and requires prompt action to mitigate further damage. If you find a leak, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the Source: Inspect your ceilings, walls and attic for water stains to find the source of the leak and areas in need of repair.
  2. Protect Valuables: Quickly move any valuable items or electronics away from areas where water is accumulating to protect them from water damage.
  3. Contain the Water: Place buckets, pots or other containers beneath the drips to catch the water and prevent it from ruining floors, furniture or other possessions.
  4. Document the Damage: Take photographs of the leak source and any resulting damage. Documentation will be essential if you need to file an insurance claim for interior damage.
  5. Contact an Emergency Repair Contractor: Contact Certitude Home Improvements for emergency storm damage roof repairs. Acting quickly can prevent the leak from escalating and causing irreversible damage
