Protecting Your Home During Storms
As a trusted local roofer, Mill Creek Roofing can provide fast and wide-ranging emergency repairs. When mother nature strikes, don’t let your roof sustain any more damage than necessary. We are answering some of the frequently asked questions that homeowners just like you have.
What qualifies as an “Emergency Repair”?
Any event where your entire roofing system is compromised qualifies for emergency roof repair. The most common instance is when inclement weather like a hurricane that could include high wind, heavy rain, or hail that causes secondary water damage.
In cases like this, we can install an emergency tarp or temporary covering on your roof and wait until the bad weather ends. Once the weather has passed we will recommend appropriate repairs or a replacement to fix your roof.
What Should I Do When My Roof Gets Damaged?
Don’t panic if your roof gets damaged. The damage has been done and it’s just a matter of documenting it for your insurance claims. We recommend that you call us before your insurance provider. We can provide an in-depth assessment of your roof and then advocate on your behalf to your insurance adjuster.
When Is a Roof Leak Repair Necessary?
Any time that the roof is compromised and is vulnerable to water intrusion requires a roof repair. The roof can be compromised by not only heavy downpours but also high winds that often occur during the seasonal hurricane. These winds can lift the shingles or tear them off completely. The high winds can also cause branches to fall from trees and scratch and penetrate the shingles. These damages can also result in costly repairs in the interior of your home as well.

Hire the Right Contractor for Your Project
When searching for a roofing contractor exercising due diligence is required to find the right contractor for your roofing project. A huge part of that is reading online reviews from previous customers. According to a few 2017 surveys and research projects, more than 90% of consumers turn to online reviews to check out local businesses. Among those around 90% of consumers trust the reviews as much as a personal recommendation. These reviews are helpful in a number of ways including the ones discussed below.
Believing every roofer is honest can cause a lot of problems. If you want to know about a prospective roofing company’s integrity, find out what others have to say about it. \A bad roofer might promise anything just to get your business.
Checking out online reviews first is an effective way to know whether the claims your prospective roofers are making are true or not. If there is a disconnect between their words an those of their former clients, that’s a red flag.
Avoiding Bad Deals
As in any industry, there are less than trustworthy contractors. Avoid falling prey to dishonest roofing companies by reading online reviews and familiarizing yourself with them. Use the experiences of others to protect yourself from being led that isn’t true.
Reading About Dispute Resolution Policy
Even the best roofing companies make mistakes, but only reliable one will address them. The Better Business Bureau is perhaps the most authoritative source of the dispute-resolution history. An A/A+ rating doesn’t necessarily mean that the company is perfect, but rather indicates that customer satisfaction is reached even after a shortcoming.
