Tropical Storm Debby packed a punch! Keep an eye on your roof!

Tropical Storm Debby packed a punch!  

And it looks as if she will continue to do so for a few days now.
NASA - Hurricane Season 2012: Tropical Storm Debby (Atlantic Ocean/Caribbean Sea)

RoofConnect would like to suggest that once the storms have passed that you check on the vitality of your roof - even if the storm didn't cause any noticeable leaks…yet.

Roof damage can lead to extensive and expensive repairs if not addressed early.  If you or your facility maintenance crew feel comfortable, you should conduct a visual inspection after the storm has passed. Things to look for:

Debris blown onto the roof
Equipment blown from other areas of the roof that needs to be placed back
Clogged drains and Ponding Water
Obvious damage to the roof
Voids in any of the membrane laps

A helpful roof evaluation checklist can be found at the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety's web site: http://disastersafety.org/hurricane/evaluating-the-roof/

Be sure to schedule a site visit with a local, licensed and reputable roofing contractor, like RoofConnect, to confirm that your roof will to continue to perform and was not severely damaged via the storm.  

As always, RoofConnect can help in an emergency…Before, during and after the storm:

Severe weather hit Texas and many parts of the country yesterday

Roof Connect has service locations throughout Texas. We are here for you and can help evaluate any potential hail damage to your commercial roofs.

RoofConnect can inspect your roof for potential hail damage from recent storms.

It is important to identify damage from a hail storm quickly to ensure payment from your insurance providers. RoofConnect will provide pictures and estimates of any damage to your roof to properly and quickly report to your insurance company. RoofConnect will make temporary repairs on all leaks and do everything possible to keep the
inside of your building dry. Call us today to schedule an evaluation of your roofs.

Things to know and remember after a possible hail storm:
• Hail stones fracture the roofing membrane and create potential leaks throughout the roof.
• Hail is not covered as a warranty item, but can be covered by insurance with an official roofing assessment.
• Unlicensed contractors and storm chasers often charge too much for substandard repairs and assessments - which can potentially void your roof warranty!

RoofConnect Provides:
• Licensed professional technicians that can give an accurate and timely assessment of the roof.
• Manufacturer approved repairs and effective plans for leak prevention.
• Seamless interfacing with insurance companies for claims.
