Replacing your Roof after Storm Damage

POSTED ON: 05/01/2020

With hurricane season nearly upon us in South Louisiana, it is important to consider what you would do in the event a storm damages your home. If you’re lucky, a simple roof replacement will suffice to fix damage from the storm.  This is where your homeowner’s insurance policy comes in.  The idea of calling and dealing with insurance causes most people a headache, but that is where Pelican Roofing in Lafayette, LA comes in.  They deal with your insurance for you and have storm specialists ready to assist you in the event a storm damages your existing roof.

Getting your roof fixed as quickly as possible after a storm is essential to protecting the rest of your home from further damage.  A cheap patch job can cause worse problems later on to the structure and integrity of your home and its contents.  Filing an insurance claim right away is the most important, as insurance companies are sure to be flooded with claims after a storm.  A roofing contractor in Lafayette, LA has the benefits of knowing the ins and outs of the roofing business. They can deal directly with your insurance to get the maximum payout and get your roof fixed fast and efficiently without you having to eat a lot of the cost upfront. 

As always, be aware of “storm chasers.”  Storm chasers are predatory people who come in after a storm promising fast, easy, and cheap fixes to damaged homes, will often collect money, and then bail.  Dealing with a local roofing contractor in Lafayette, LA ensures that you are dealing with people who know your community and have a vested interest in keeping their company name clear of complaints.
