Step 1: Inspection and damage assessment
Fire damage restoration specialists, a roofing company or roofing contractors will assess the degree to which the unfortunate incident has damaged different components of your property, or your entire roof, in order to determine the amount of repair that will be necessary and present you with an estimated roofing cost. What you need to know is that there are two main types of damage that can affect residential and commercial roofing: fire and water damage.
When a fire breaks out, it ravages many of the components that are responsible for maintaining the structure safe to live in, this includes the roof and roof deck since the underlying beams may be weakened and scorched to the point of collapsing beneath the weight of the roof. Similarly, depending on the location of the fire and the sort of roof you have, roofing shingles may have sustained further damage.
Water damage may be the result of relentless downpour, but it is more likely to accumulate over time due to inadequate poor sealing. You may also have water damage as a result of the fire extinguishing operation, due to house fire, bad fire restoration services, debris removal process or some faulty fire damage covered methods causing the need for help from the fire department. The materials used to hold shingles in place will deteriorate over time, exposing the wood underneath.
Aside from visible leaks, granule-filled gutters, cracked or peeling shingles or soft wood decking are signs that your property is in need of water damage restoration and that you need to look for professional advice, contact a fire damage restoration company, roof repair services or call a roofing contractor as soon as possible, as fire damage repair is quite similar to water restoration services.
