Are you still reeling after your area was struck with a fierce storm? If so, you are more than likely having to make repairs at your home. From making an assessment to having your roof inspected to selecting a new roof, here are some ideas that might help you get your house back in shape.
Make An Assessment - Consider setting aside time to write down everything that is in need of repairs or in need of replacement. For example, if you have a glass-topped wrought iron patio table, the glass might have been cracked or severely broken. If so, write that down. Even write down damage that was done to your flower beds and trees on your property. You may need professionals to check out some of the more extensive damage.
For example, you might suspect that your roof was damaged, especially if the storm brought hail. Consider calling a service that does both inspections and that sells new roofs. A professional will have the training and the experience needed to detect even small problems like leaks or shingles that were lost during the storm. Even a red tile roof might be able to be repaired rather than replaced.
Select Your New Roof - If the inspector tells you that your roof simply needs to be repaired, count your lucky stars. On the other hand, the inspector might recommend that you replace the roof. If you have doubts, contact a second professional to see if he or she concurs with the fact that a new roof is needed. Even without the advice or a professional, you might decide that it is time for a new roof anyway. If so, you more than likely have some choices to make.
For example, you may not have even liked the roof that is currently on your house. This might be the best time to select a totally new one. For instance, you might have always wished that your house had a tin roof. While it might be more expensive than the shingle one that is on your house now, a tin roof will last for a very long time, and it might even do better for you in the next storm. If you have a shingle roof now and you have been happy with it, you might consider giving your house a new look by selecting shingles of a totally different color.
