Roofing Formula LLC Can Help with Emergency Roof Repairs in Kirkland, WA

Disaster can strike at any time and cause your roof to fall into disrepair. While no one expects a hailstorm, lightning, or strong winds to decimate their roof, it’s a reality that happens all too often. Knowing who to call after a storm can make all the difference. In Kirkland, WA, emergency roof repair is just a call away at (425) 207-6016. Roofing Formula LLC has decades of experience in the roofing industry and can help you restore your roof after an emergency.

Our licensed roofers provide a range of emergency repair services including:

  • Hail damage. When hail strikes, it can create pockmarks and small cracks in your shingle or tile. These weakened areas leave your roof susceptible to leaks. Furthermore, when hail hits, it can scuff off the protective granules that cover asphalt shingle roofs. Without these, your roof is more likely to be damaged by ultraviolet radiation.
  • Wind damage. When wind hits your roof, it doesn’t do so in a uniform manner. Instead, it has the greatest impact on ridgelines, edges, and corners. Strong winds can curl, rip, or altogether remove shingles from your roof.
  • Structural damage. While roofs are durable and made to last, they’re not indestructible. Things like accumulated snow, heavy rainfall, pooled water, and ice dams can all cause significant structural damage to your roof. Left unattended, roof sag and collapse are possible.
  • Roof leaks. A small roof leak can quickly turn into a larger, more serious (and costly) situation. If you notice a leak, reach out to your local roofer as soon as possible.

How do I know if my roofing problem is an emergency?

Anything that potentially threatens the safety of your family is considered a roofing emergency. Things like holes in the roof or roof sag are considered an emergency since they increase the likelihood of roof collapse.

The first thing to do if your roof has incurred significant damage is to assess the situation. If there’s a tree on your roof, for example, it may be best to vacate the premises until structural stability can be determined. Then, reach out to your homeowner’s insurance company for instructions on what to do next. Your insurance company may schedule an appointment for an adjuster to come out and inspect the damage, or they may ask you to contact a local roofer to perform a roof inspection.

Roof Insurance Claims for Emergency Roof Repairs

While roofing emergencies can bring a lot of stress and unexpected expenses, the good news is that your home insurance policy may cover the costs of having your roof repaired or replaced. Generally speaking, your insurance will cover roof damage if it’s caused by an extreme weather event. But navigating the insurance claims process can be complicated and frustrating to someone inexperienced. Homeowners have a certain amount of time (typically a year) to submit necessary documentation and photographic evidence of roof damage for it to be approved. Failing to submit required documentation may lead to a denial of your claim.
