Blown Off Shingles & Wind Related Damage
Shingle blow off is a very typical problem that occurs on roofs across Chicagoland. The high winds primarily affect shingles that are not nailed down properly. You might have a very small handful of shingles blow off or an entire section of your roof. Either way its critical to get it fixed right away with our emergency storm damage and roof repair services. Once the shingles are blown off it will not take long for wind and rain to penetrate the vapor barrier and begin to create leaks into your home. We can provide emergency tarping as an immediate solution and then come back to fix the leak permanently.
Emergency 24/7 Tarping Service For Tyler
When your roof is damaged in a storm you need an immediate solution to stop the rain from causing thousands of dollars of damage to the interior of your home. The problem is that during wind storms most local roofing contractors are flooded with requests to provide emergency roof leak repair and are booked out. In this case the very best solution is to take advantage of our emergency tarp program. We can respond 24/7 to properly install a tarp that will waterproof your home or business to keep it safe and dry until the repair can be made. In the event that the roof needs to be replaced, we will deduct the cost of the tarp and small repair out of the cost of the re-roof.
Tree & Branch Damage Or Structural Penetrations
Another common issue during a wind storm is damaged caused by downed trees and branches that are blown off of overhanging trees. Branches that fall from a significant height can penetrate through your shingle or membrane roof like a spear. At times the damage is only visible with a detailed inspection and not from the ground. Trees can also break or fall during storms causing structural damage to your roof. In either case we are able to fix the damage and help you focus on the more important things in life!

Hail Damage: What should I Do?
Hailstorms are just another part of life in Chicago. They happen frequently, but their duration, intensity and hailstone size can vary a great deal. Sometimes, a storm may bring two minutes of dime-sized hail, one minute of softball-sized hail or 10 minutes of pea-sized hail. When the hailstones are extremely large, the storm normally receives media attention — and while baseball- or softball-sized hail can do a lot of damage to roofs, skylights and vent covers, even smaller hailstones have the potential to cause damage.
Hailstones cause most of their damage to asphalt shingles by knocking off the granules that coat the top layer of the shingles. Without the protection of the granules, water can seep beneath the shingles to underlying layers and the black matting becomes exposed to the sunlight and heat. This causes the spots to heat up during the day and cool at night. This constant expansion and contraction due to heating and cooling eventually caused the matting crack and to spider web out allowing water to seep through. Sooner or later, leaks will appear.Therefore, it is important for hail damage to be repaired — but it is critical that it be done correctly. The following tips will help you deal with the situation should your roof suffer hail damage.
Understanding the insurance claims process
If your home is damaged by a storm, it's essential for you to quickly begin the insurance and repair process. A typical claims process works as follows:
Assess the damage: Sometimes roof damage is as obvious as a fallen tree on your home or a section of missing shingles, telling you right away repairs are necessary. This is not always the case, however, which is why it's important to call a trained roof inspector like 360 Restoration as soon as possible. This inspection will tell you how much damage you have and whether repairs or replacement are necessary.
Claims adjustment: Insurance companies typically send a claims adjuster to inspect the roof and determine the value of the roof. Because we have on-staff claims adjusters, we can handle this step of the process and provide an initial valuation of the roof and cost estimate for repairs or replacement.
Insurance company approval: Once the claim is submitted to the insurance company, they will provide you with a check to initiate the repair or replacement process. This check is for the amount of the estimate minus the depreciation and deductible. This is important to note, because the first check will likely be for less than you were expecting (more on that later).
Roof repairs or replacement: After everything is cleared with the insurance company, we will provide you with complete roof repairs or full roof replacement. Our experts work with a variety of materials and will give you a complete solution.
Completing the process: Once the work is completed, we send a final invoice to the insurance company. The insurer will then release the remainder of the money and give you a second check that covers the remaining cost of the work done to your home.
