Dealing with any form of fire damage to your home or business property is a situation no one wants to deal with, but sadly, it's an event that can often sneak up and surprise the most diligent of us, and having the right people in your corner when these situations happen can make all the different. At Grand Rapids Best Roofer we have assisted hundreds of home and business owners in the wake of fires, and though it never gets easier to see a property owner deal with it, our service, we hope helps relieve some of the stress.
The primary concern for our roofing crews when arriving to the scene of a fire damaged roof is to provide the area a complete inspection. This is both to ensure that it will support the weight of roofers that will need to work on it, but as well to get a full idea of what is damaged, what will need to be replaced, and how much material we will need to deliver a full repair. This step is vital for the proper care and repair of your roof.
Removal of Damage
The second step we undertake is to ensure that we remove all damaged wood and material from the roof. This will consist of the shingle, tile or tin materials used for cover, and any damaged or weakened wood supporting the roof itself. This will allow us to give strength back to your roof and have all new materials supporting the weight of your entire roof. Overlooked or ignored areas of weakness can result in sag or collapse and a much larger, and more expensive, repair down the line, so this step is equally important in the repair.
Reinforcing Your Roof
The third step we take in repairing your fire damaged roof is to reinforce the roof with new materials. This includes replacing burned or damaged wood in your joist, supports and ribs, the flat sheet wood used to lay the shape of your roof, and preparing your roof for refinishing. Ensuring that this part is done to the highest quality is what will determine if your roof will hold up for the next number of years. As with any repair, you want to ensure that the foundation for your materials is strong and will hold up to the wear and tear of the elements.
The final step is the one that brings back your roofs former glory. Refinishing your roof in exacting detail to ensure that areas that were damaged, and those that are new are seamless integrated and gives your roof a beautiful look from edge to edge. Grand Rapids Best Roofer brings you a fire damage service that takes everything into account, and doesn't cut any corners when it comes to bringing your roof back to its pre-damaged state. When you want a service you can count on to give you complete and thorough service, you can trust Grand Rapids Best Roofer.
