Roof Leaks & Insurance Claims


Good Afternoon Green County andsurrounding Communities Daniel here with ZCI, I was out yesterday putting aquick patch on someone's roof before this rain storm came, and I thought itmight be valuable if I shared with you guys a couple tips to make sure youdon't have water intrusion that you don't know about the potetiual modegrowing so make sure that you're regularly,even once a month, especially after a big rain storm going around checkingeach of your rooms, checking the ceilings, checking especially closetceilings that maybe you don't see as much and believe it or not. We oftensee stains in people's bedrooms above their beds that they should be seeingevery day that they had no clue so make sure Yeu pay attention to that semiregularly, because we would hate for there to be some kind of mold growth inyour addick in the insulation that might be getting into your HBC system,and we all know that's bad for health, so make sure you're paying attention tothat some commonleakue areas...

...more often than not. This is going tobe where there's penetrations hipt boots thents. Sometimes your Ridgevents. Maybe, where your roof mneeds a wall where there's flashing that mightnot be installed properly, made e damaged, so pay attention, especiallythere. Those are typically easy fixes if it's just a penetration. So if you do find a league- and youaren't sure where it's coming from- you have a couple options. The first is toget a second opinion, which is my recommendation, get a professional outwho is used to inspecting roups, who understands the common pan points, howleake areas and understands the Bethma best, not that Evr prepairs. The secondoption, which I don't recommend, is getting on your roof and looking for iton your own, because if you're not trained, it can be dangerous, and ifyou don't have to train eye, you might miss something Becaus, the obvious to local experience, contract, okay andthen we're going to repair it...

...either a temporr repair or a long turmrepair depending on the situation and then we're going to bile a plane,OT necissary. This is if there was damage- and in our experience we cansay this is the type of damage that clients of ours have viled. For thepast and we've seen peace type of censets, so that's going to come from either afriend or family who's file to claim and understands the process or arestoration contractor who was used to dealing with these types of planes, uset identifying, damage and can say here's what you can like. We expect andhere's how we go. Okay, so be paying attention to those things again. Wehate tither to be a mold situation or DRYV wall rotting, and you find out toolate right so have a great weekend.
