Emergency Roof Tips:
If lightning strikes your roof: check that no fire has sparked from the strike. Avoid all electronics because they could have been damaged or fried from the strike. Call your insurance agency to report the lightning strike. Then, call us at Gen Ex so we can work with your insurance company and repair all the damage incurred from the strike.
If hail damage has occurred: Hail damage can be tricky because it can rip shingles off the roof. While that may not seem like much at first, but this kind of damage is far worse than at first glance because it can cause potential leaks. You may not notice these leaks until they’re really bad. Not addressing a roof leak can cause harmful mold and other problems into your attic. You can verify whether or not your roof has a hole in it by having someone in your attic observe while you spray the roof with water from your hose. If you notice a leak or a hole, Gen Ex will get it fixed quickly and properly.
If a tree falls on your roof: If a tree collapses on your house, this can present a potentially dangerous situation that may not be apparent at fist. The structural integrity of your home could be compromised in ways that you may not seem evident! You need to exit as soon as possible. Quickly retrieve any necessary items because you might not be able to return for a while. Call your insurance company and then call us at Gen Ex. We can make recommendations to repair any problems that may have occurred from the tree damage to your home.
Emergency Siding Tips:
If a storm is moving through the area with high winds and hail, the siding can literally be ripped off of your house. Here are some tips you can do to help avoid further damage:
Don’t Tear the Siding Off: If your home has siding that became come loose or is sticking out, please, do not try to rip it off of your house. It’s possible to salvage it. However, if you tear the damaged siding off, you may actually worsen the problem because it could affect other pieces.
Be Careful Near the Edges: Take caution while walking around the edges of the siding. Damaged edges are sharp and can scratch or cut you very easily depending on what type siding is installed on your home.
Collect the Pieces: Collect any pieces of siding around your home. You don’t them to get blown into your neighbor’s yards or around the area. Plus when it comes to siding, you never know what can be salvaged, so it’s a good idea to retrieve and pieces you safely can.
