Don’t wait until it’s too late to fix storm damage
Storm damage can rip and tear shingles right off your roof. This makes it easier for leaks to occur. When a severe storm strikes your home, Northeast Home & Energy is ready to respond.
If high winds, hail, heavy rain, ice storms,or lightning cause damage to your home’s exterior, our emergency response teams are available 24/7 to make quick repairs to protect your home and preserve your property.
Once the storm abates, we’ll return to assess the damage and restore your home to its original condition.
Things to be aware of
Following a storm event, like the 2011 tornadoes, our area can be invaded by “storm chasers.” These phony “contractors” rush into an affected area to take advantage of vulnerable homeowners. They offer quick repairs at low prices, but then abscond with your upfront payment.
To protect your home long term, it’s important that you choose an experienced, accredited local contractor, like Northeast Home & Energy. We have the resources to ensure that your repairs will be done properly and on time.
Don’t delay repairs and maintenance
You may be tempted to delay repairs after a destructive storm. But even minor damage can lead to a larger, more expensive problem later. For instance, water seeping into your home through a damaged roof may not become noticeable for up to 18 months, which is enough time to cause extensive damage to the structure of your home.
Repairing a leak may be as simple as troweling roofing cement over old, cracked flashing, or as involved as replacing a large area of wind-torn shingles. Northeast Home & Energy’s roofing experts can handle any type of roof repair, including those that involve replacing fractured or rotted rafters and rotted decking.
The first step is to call Northeast Home & Energy for a free inspection and assessment of the damage. Our professionals will be able to spot unseen damage and potential problems that are not visible to the untrained eye.
Hidden hailstorm damage can result in long-term trouble
A hailstorm can cause untold damage to your roof. Cracked shingles, roof penetrations, and damaged gutters are the most visible problems they create. But hailstones can also bruise the layer under your shingles; that bruising can spread and cause leaks. Northeast Home & Energy’s experts can identify the signs of such damage so that we can make emergency roof repairs before they result in huge headaches.
