While the trees in your yard offer beauty and depth to your home, they also pose great damage risks during storms and harsh weather. Tree branches often break due to high winds and thick snow and can cause hundreds of dollars in damages when they fall on the roof. In fact, trees are the number one cause of serious storm damage like:
- Material Damage
- Water Ponding
Keeping your trees healthy and sturdy can minimize the risk and danger of falling trees. It’s also a good idea to keep them trimmed in a manner so they don’t hand over your home or roof system.
If a tree has fallen on your home, the first step is emergency tree removal. This should always be completed by a professional in order to minimize damage and cost. Once the tree has been removed, a roofing professional can assess your damage, provide emergency roof repairs, and help with insurance claims. Emergency roof repairs typically consist of tarping the open area to prevent water, animals, and other damaging effects from entering the damaged spot. Once the insurance claim has been filed and your options have been explained, the long-term repairs can begin.
