Why You Need A Stevens Point Storm Damage Repair Expert

The roof is the one part of a house that really protects occupants against the elements. Wind, rain, snow, sun and any inclement weather is constantly beating down on the roof of your house and this combination can have dire effects.

Using a quality roofing firm and superior roofing materials means that you will be protected from all but the harshest of these conditions. However, when the weather really strikes, there is very little we can do to ensure the integrity of our roof.

Stevens Point storm damage repair can be costly, however, it is much cheaper than leaving it to get worse and worse.

Why you shouldn’t do storm damage repair yourself

Regardless of the quality of your roofing and how well you look after it, certain circumstances invariably lead to damage that must be replaced as quickly as possible to avoid further, much more costly damage to the roof and to the structure of the home itself.

Paying for good Stevens Point storm damage repair is absolutely essential in maintaining the integrity of your home, and having the storm damage repair done quickly is also vital. Small cracks or holes can quickly lead to bigger problems so you should get a quote from a trusted and respected company as soon as you possibly can.

Very few people really know anything about Stevens Point storm damage repair and unless you have been in the unfortunate circumstance of needing it done it is unlikely you will know where to start. Attempting Stevens Point storm damage repair yourself can prove more costly than paying a professional to complete the job properly.

Obviously, though, you will want to stop the rain and the wind from getting inside the house and if the storm has hit several houses in your area it may be a short while before you can get a roofer to come and fix your problems.

Temporary Stevens Point storm damage repair

Temporarily you might want to consider securely fixing some tarpaulin over any holes. It is important that you do this very securely and that you don’t leave any gaps, no matter how small the gaps may be.

If you do leave even a small hole then the wind can easily get underneath the tarpaulin and rip it up taking yet more of the roof with it. You should fix the tarpaulin to the outside of your roof because while fixing it inside may prevent it from catching in the wind, rain will collect and run into the house, making your temporary Stevens Point storm damage repair useless.

Adequate temporary storm damage repair

The tighter you can pull the tarpaulin over the hole the better, so tightly secure one end and then gradually move around pulling it tight and securing it in place with plenty of roofing nails.

If you get it tight enough with no holes there is no reason that you will take on further leaks while you wait for a professional roofing contractor to come out and complete the required Stevens Point storm damage repair.

Bear in mind that full Stevens Point storm damage repair will first involve a thorough checkup of the whole roof and simply fixing the holes that have appeared might not be the full picture of what is required.

I just wanted to drop a line about my second project i had oakwood exteriors do with tom dolittle doing the siding projects. Thank you very much,Tom Dolittle does amazing work and is very professional and very polite. I'm very picky n tom work is second to none. You can see his craftsmanship shine in his work. I hope tom is taking care of very well n his pay reflects that,he desevsers it. He is a very hardworking young man n we hope on our next project he'll be back.thank you also to Jordan for making the drive out here n not turning our project down even tho it was on the smaller side.

We received an email and call to schedule the replacement of our roof and siding in March. They showed up on time and ready to work, and everyone was extremely professional. The whole process went very smoothly, with updates on things that had been discovered during the removal (we had some water damage that needed to be addressed). They did not just "paper over" the problems, and the repairs that they made were more than adequate to ensure that the problem spots would no longer be a problem. Some of the work was extensive, and had my wife and I worried that we would not have enough left in our budget to cover the repairs, but Jordan was very easy to talk to about this and helped to alleviate a lot of the fears of the unknown, as he explained it "he isn't there to hose, anyone". I cannot recommend Oakwood strongly enough. They explained the process, there were no "surprises", the quality was above and beyond, they were very thorough cleaning up, and the final price (even with the repairs) was in line with our estimate. My wife and I (and all of our neighbors) were very happy with the final product.Jason Carew

I just had a new roof installed on my home and it was done in just two days. The contractor was on time both days very clean and organized they covered my windows to prevent any damage from anything from the roof falling. Jordan took pictures as the job progressed to let me know what he had to fix no surprises no extra fees. I can't say enough good things about how lucky I was to find this company for my home. I highly recommend Oakwood Exteriors for your job it's worth the wait they book up fast you won't be disappointed quality company.Andrew Harvey
