Few things are scarier than having a tree hit your roof. Tree strikes can cause a ton of roof damage, not just on the surface but also to the structure of the roof. They can be very dangerous, even leading to a total collapse of your roof.

If a tree hits your roof, it is important for you to get out of the house. If the storm is ongoing, you should take shelter in another covered area. That is because you could be in serious danger. Trees can collapse your entire roof. If you are unable to safely leave your home, you should get as far away from the area where the tree hit as possible. If you are in a multi-story home, you want to get to the lowest story.

The next thing you need to do is call a roofing repair company. We would love for you to call us, but even if you choose another roofer, you must contact a professional. It can be difficult to tell the extent of roofing damage. If you fix only the exterior damage, you can be left with a weakened roof, which puts you and your family at risk. So, you need a professional to assess the damage to your roof. Not only can a professional tell you what repairs need to be done, they can also give you an opinion about the structural integrity of your roof and whether it is safe to stay on the premises before repairs are completed.

Once you can safely do so, you should take photos of the interior and exterior damage to your home. When trees hit homes, you often have extensive interior damage that insurance will cover. However, you need to make sure to document it. Getting pictures when it happens, before you begin the cleanup process, is a great way to document that damage.

Even if you think the tree damage is limited to only a small part of your roof, you want to have the whole roof inspected. In storms that are severe enough to cause tree damage, there is often other flying debris. If the damage is substantial, you may find that you need a new roof. While this may sound like bad news, it may be a good time to have your homeowner’s insurance cover your claim. Indeed, Carl’s can work with you to provide a professional quote for both a repair and a replacement.

Had a great experience with By Carl's from start to finish. Our Project Specialist Phil was awesome. He came out showed us the product and explained what was going to be done. He took care of all measurements and got back to us very fast with an estimate. The estimate beat the other two companies I had talked to which was great.Due to property line issues and getting permits the fence had to be remeasured twice. Phil came out without hesitation and remeasured to make sure everything was... correct. This was done without hassle or delay. I have to say Phil is a great asset to the company.The crew came out on time and on the scheduled day. Do to the size of the lot and the number of panels to be installed the crew chief told me it was a two day project immediately. Which was fine by me. The crew worked very hard and made sure everything was placed properly including posts, panels, and locking devices. The fence came out beautiful do to their hard work.My family and especially my dogs are super happy with the fence and how much property we can utilize now because of the work done by everyone at By Carl's from our sales specialist Phil to the people in the office and the crew that placed the fence.Thank you for making our home that much more beautiful!!read more

I had such an exceptionally good experience with John Sanchez (the Repairs Supervisor) of Carl's Fencing, Decking & Home Improvements. The gate of our 60+ year old fence broke. We did not want to replace the fence at this time. We just wanted a functional gate. I called Carl's and scheduled an appointment for a repair assessment. John came out right on time, looked at the gate, and repaired it right on the spot! He was extremely professional and personable. He took his time and explained... everything to me. I am VERY happy. When it comes time for us to replace this fence, we know who we will be calling!read more

Carl’s installed a convex cedar fence in October 2010. Our fence is in excellent condition, despite its age, but the gate did not snap close as it once did. A repairs supervisor came out, our intention was just to get an estimate on its repair. John arrived at the beginning of the 2 hour window, and was able to quickly identify and make the necessary adjustments. We appreciate his honesty and professionalism and plan to use this company again in the near future. Thank you Carl’s Fencing!
