Kansas City’s unpredictable weather can be severe with its ice storms, snow storms, heavy rains and wind, hail and freezing temperatures. We all breathe a sigh of relief when we look up at our roof and see if everything is still in place though, sometimes things may not all be as good as they appear. Raised shingles can settle back down after the wind stops, broken seals may be fine this time around but should probably be taken care of before the next storm.
Though your roof comes in many pieces it is interwoven to become one, as components of this unit become compromised or weaker it can give away the catastrophic damage. Repairing minor damage in securing lifted or released shingles, securing the gutters were fascia can strengthen your roof for the next severe weather.
When the roof or structure has sustained considerable damage, the best thing you can do is call your insurance and get a professional to inspect the damage and try to minimize any further damage right away. Diversified Construction and Roofing can assess the damage and implement temporary measures to minimize further damage to both the structural integrity of your property as well as anything kept inside the home or business.
