NRCA Urges Homeowners and Business Owners Hit by Tornadoes and Hail Storm to Use Caution When Repairing Their Roof Systems

NRCA Homes Hit by Tornadoes and Hailstorm
June 7, 2019

In the aftermath of the damage caused by the recent tornadoes and hail storms, NRCA is encouraging homeowners to check their rooftops for damage and missing shingles caused by hail and excessively strong winds.

Editor's note: As a member of the National Roofing Contractor's Association (NRCA), one of the benefits you receive is that NRCA helps educate homeowners and provides a resource for them to locate your business on their consumer focused website www.everybodyneedsaroof.com. 

Roofs are designed to resist typical hail and wind loads in their locations but often cannot withstand the most extreme conditions. Tornado-force winds and hail can incrementally damage a roof system.

NRCA strongly urges that homeowners and business owners do not attempt repairs on their own. Damage assessment of a roof system and subsequent repairs should be done by a professional roofing contractor.

NRCA also warns those affected by Friday's severe storms to be aware of unprofessional contractors who may approach them about performing roof system repairs. If it is necessary to hire a roofing contractor, homeowners and business owners should keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Price is only one criterion for selecting a professional roofing contractor; professionalism and quality workmanship also must be considered. Potential contractors should be thoroughly evaluated before a deposit is made or any reroofing work begins.

For tips about locating an NRCA professional contractor and how to address hail damage, homeowners and business owners should visit NRCA's consumer website, www.everybodyneedsaroof.com.

NRCA is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy. It represents all segments of the roofing industry, including contractors; manufacturers; distributors; architects; consultants; engineers; building owners; and city, state and government agencies. NRCA's mission is to inform and assist the roofing industry, act as its principal advocate and help members in serving their customers. NRCA continually strives to enhance every aspect of the roofing industry. For information about NRCA and its services and offerings, visit www.nrca.net.
