Hurricane Idalia

Hurricane season is in full force with Hurricane Idalia projected to produce tornadoes along the west central Florida coast and into the Big Bend. Due to the size of the storm, Floridians across the state will experience heavy rain, wind, fallen trees, and storm debris. 

We want you to know Tadlock Roofing is ready with resources and supplies to respond to roof damage caused by what could be one of the most dangerous storms this season. 

As Florida’s most trusted roofing contractor since 1980, the experienced team at Tadlock Roofing is here to assist the affected communities with roof inspections, repairs, replacements, and more.

Pending the severity of the Hurricane, we will remain open after the storm to secure your home from further damage and schedule or perform any needed repairs. Call us at 1-855-964-7663 and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Tadlock Roofing holds offices and proudly serves the following markets: Tallahassee, Pensacola, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, Sarasota, and Gainesville.

How high of wind speed can your roof withstand?

      • Metal Roofs: Metal roofs offer a higher level of protection and are generally rated for wind speeds up to 140mph. Depending on the material, they might also be impact-resistant.

      • Asphalt Shingles: Owens Corning shingles are covered under warranty up to 130mph depending on the type of shingle chosen. Give us a call for information specific to your roof or check out this Owens Corning Wind Warranty chart or your manufacturer’s warranty.

    If Tadlock Roofing has installed your roof, don’t hesitate to give us a call for more information about your roof and its warranty.

    Top 7 Steps to Protect Your Home from Hurricane Idalia:

        • Secure your windows and doors. Broken windows can let in wind and rain, and they can also increase the pressure under the roof.

        • Take inventory. Having an inventory list will make the process of getting through the claim process much easier.

        • Gather all loose items in your yard and trim your trees. Broken limbs can land on your house or become missiles that can break windows during a storm.

        • Do not go on your roof during the storm – especially in the dark. It is dangerous and you could get hurt.

        • Update your insurance. Make sure you have the right amount of insurance and fill in any gaps in coverage.

        • If possible, park your cars in the garage or away from large trees.

        • If a tree or significant branch falls on your home, your first call should be to your insurance agent and then a licensed tree service. Then call Tadlock Roofing to inspect and secure your roof to avoid further damage. We will coordinate with the tree service to expedite this process.

      It is our hope that we escape this storm with minimal impact, but if you do sustain damage to your roof, please know we are ready to help.

        Roof Storm Damage Checklist – Identifying and Repairing the Damage

        One of the most important things to do after a big storm is to check the roof. A quick inspection could make a world of difference when it comes to the cost of repairing interior damage that you may encounter later on due to water intrusion. Here’s the ultimate roof storm checklist that we recommend going through after hail, strong winds, or heavy rainfall hits your area.

        1. Checking the Roof

        The first thing we always recommend doing is checking the roof for any signs of damage, and taking photos. Those photos could be really useful when it’s time to call the insurance company. We suggest looking for the obvious but also looking for curled or missing shingles, as well as dents, and taking note of the damage.


        2. Inspecting the Windows, Gutters, and Vents

        The next step is to determine whether your windows made it out of the storm ok. The most common damage you’ll see includes broken glass, torn screens, and loose weather-stripping.

        When it comes to the gutters and vents, we recommend checking if there are any dents in them. Also, it’s a good idea to examine them for any debris buildup because it can lead to leaks and extensive roof damage. 


        3. Looking for Debris

        Another crucial step on the checklist is to inspect the entire perimeter of the home for signs of damage. If there are any fallen branches, trees, or hail damage on decks or patios, we, again, recommend taking photos. There also might be damage to the fence, outdoor furniture, or decorations, which is important to note.

         

        4. Checking for Leaks and Water Spots

        Just because there’s no visible damage to the roof, that doesn’t mean that it’s not compromised. Oftentimes, if the gutters were clogged, or the roof was already weak, you’ll see water spots on the ceiling or in the attic. To better examine the area and ensure you don’t miss anything, we always advise using a flashlight. 


        5. Contacting a Roofing Contractor

        Now that you have all the damage photographed and documented, you have to act quickly and contact Tadlock Roofing. We will come over on short notice and do a thorough and detailed inspection to see what needs to be repaired. Then, we will give you a fair estimate, and work tirelessly to fix the damage.


        6. Calling the Homeowners Insurance Provider

        If there’s extensive damage on your roof, the last step on the checklist is calling the homeowner’s insurance provider and filing a claim. If they determine that the claim is valid, you will get compensation for it, which is really important.
