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.

How do I begin from the representative, Mr. Thomas who assisted me with the application process was very informative and considerate. The installers Antonio, Luis, Rodrigo and Lionel were on the money. They were organized and highly skilled especially Antonio. I was amazed how they cut the materials to the specifications of my house and all was perfectly aligned. As they finished each day they would leave my property clean with no debris left behind. I’m very happy with the results and I... highly recommend more

To begin, I called Carl’s Fencing they sent Amy Ridgeway, who is a sales representative, and she came out to the house a couple of times. I mostly thank and give credit to her for the overall knowledge honesty and guidance throughout. Not to mention she is very easy to work with. I would also like to thank the office staff for their overall help. Once I decided exactly what I wanted Amy set everything in motion and the fencing crew came out and did the installation. Overall, I am very pleased... with the fence installation and the way it looks. The only thing that could have been a little better is afterwards clean up at the bottom of the fence area where all the digging was done. I think that I may be responsible a bit for not paying more attention before signing off on the job. But overall I am satisfied With Carl’s Fencing and their more

We have used Carl’s for our white vinyl fence a few years back so when we needed some additional fencing to keep our puppies from using the landscaping as their hangout, of course we called Carl’s. Amy Ridgeway came out to estimate the job and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the type of fencing we needed. She helped us select the perfect product and it looks beautiful in our yard. The installers were prompt, very neat and respectful. Thank you Amy for a job well done!
