Greg came out to my place to do a roof inspection. He was very thorough and advised us of all of our options, even including the option of waiting to replace our roof. You could tell he wasn’t just trying to sell a job, but provide honest options available. He even did a roof repair for free for us! He advised us on what to look for should future issues arise that may require attention and, most importantly to me, he advised on what not to lose sleep over. He was reassuring, telling us what to do to protect and maintain our home. He really took his time and even looked at additional exterior concerns (such as my gutters) that I had, again, answering all of my questions. I highly recommend them! The office staff was friendly and they maintained contact for scheduling and responded immediately, respecting my work schedule as well, which I appreciated !

If an unexpected storm rolls through and damages your home, we highly advise you keep the following things in mind that can help minimize future damage and keep you and your family safe

Emergency Roof Tips:

If lightning strikes your roof: check that no fire has been ignited from the strike. Keep your distance from all electronics because they could have been damaged or fried from the strike. Call your insurance agency to report the lightning strike. Next, call us at Gen Ex so we can work with your insurance company and repair all the damage from the strike.

If hail damage has occurred:  Hail damage can be tricky because it can rip shingles off the roof. It 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 that you may not notice until they get worse. Letting a leak go in the roof un-repaired can cause harmful mold and other problems into your attic. You can check to verify if your roof has a hole in it by having someone in your attic while you spray the roof with water from your hose.  If you notice a hole or a leak, Gen Ex will get it repaired quickly and properly.

If a tree falls on your roof:  If a tree collapses on your house, this is a dangerous situation and you should exit the house. The structural integrity of your home could be compromised in ways that you may not seem evident! 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 help advise you of any problems that may have occurred from the tree damage to your home.

Emergency Siding Tips:

If a storm is hammering the area with gusty winds and hail, the siding can literally be ripped off of your house. Here are a few tips you can do to help mitigate the damage:

Don’t Tear the Siding Off:  If your home has siding that has become come loose or is sticking out, please, do not attempt to rip it off of your house. It’s may be possible to salvage it but if you do tear the damaged siding off, you may actually worsen the problem by affecting other pieces.

Be Careful Near the Edges: Take caution when walking by the edges of the siding. These damaged edges are sharp and can scratch or cut you very easily depending on what type siding is installed.

Collect the Pieces: Collect any pieces of siding around your home so they don’t get blown into your neighbor’s yards or around the area. Plus when it comes to siding, you never know what can be salvageable, so it’s a good idea to retrieve what you can.
