Fire Damage On Roofs
Roofs are sometimes susceptible to fire damage, and this can cause serious issues for properties. Anybody that knows anything about fire will recognize how, quickly, a fire can wreak havoc and cause devastation to a whole property, particularly if the roof goes up in flames. Of course, that isn’t always how it works. In some cases, roofs are constructed from fire retardant materials that limit the likelihood of extensive damage, or pretty much eliminate it altogether. If, however, you fall into that former category and have experienced damage to your roof as the result of a fire, repair work will need to take place as a priority. At Infinity Roofing, we’re here to help you with anything you need. Below, you can learn more about the importance of urgent repair work, and further details regarding our fire damage on roofs service. Anybody with lingering doubts or queries can speak to our customer service team, which is available over the phone or via our online web form.
Inspecting the Damage
Before we get into a physical work on your damaged roof, we’ll need to carry out an extensive inspection of the damage. By doing so, we can determine what is salvageable and what needs replacing, as a minimum. Our team will also be able to estimate the cost of any repair or replacement work that will be needed. Transparent pricing is something that we take very seriously at Infinity Roofing. Our inspection team is meticulous in their approach, ensuring that no stone is left unturned.
Salvaging the Roof
Once the roof damage inspection is carried out by a certified roofing contractor, we’ll be well placed to move ahead with any repair work that needs to take place. If much of the roof is not damaged, localized repair procedures could restore your roof back into its optimal condition without any large-scale works taking place. Of course, if the damage is more widespread than that, any attempt to salvage existing parts of the roof could be folly. In those cases, we’ll have to move onto more substantial measures, like replacing the entire roof structure instead.
In those cases where the vast majority of the roof has been damaged beyond repair – or the whole of the roof has gone up in flames – then the only realistic option is replacing the roof altogether. This might mean adding new support structures in addition to the outer lining and roofing materials, like slats, shingles, or tiles. If this is required, we’ll obviously have conversations with you to determine the type of structure and aesthetic that you’d like us to implement.
If your property has been involved in a fire and the roof needs repair or replacement work, there’s a high chance that you’ll be leaning on your insurance to cover the costs associated with restoration and repair. We have plenty of experience collaborating with insurance companies to get the work completed in a swift and efficient manner, meaning you get a normal, functional property that much sooner.
