Hey, Amber with RestoreMasters here at New Hope Christian Church. Here, after a large wind event ripped off the backside of the church’s roof. They gave us a call, and we’re here to help them out.
When we arrived on scene, there were large sections of the roof torn off all the way down to the rafters, actually laying on the other side of the property. We walked through the property with the pastor, noticed multiple leaks. A pastor was able to reach out to the insurance company, and they told him two to three weeks before they could have somebody out to the property. And two to three weeks is just absolutely too long for our customers to wait.
So from the ground, a lot of these slopes actually looked okay. And then upon closer inspection, we found out with a 100 mile per hour winds, causes of a lot of vibrations actually vibrated the nail heads back up through the top of the shingles. These are all over the property, all over the roof system. What we decided to do was go in with a 12 mill shrink wrap on the entire roof system to prevent any leaks from coming through to keep this property covered.
So what we’ve done on this section over here is we’ve actually added some temporary bracing and decking so that the roof could be properly dried in, so that the shrink wrap could lay on there properly. One of the reasons we’ve decided to use shrink wrap versus your standard tarp is, in our experience working with hurricanes, the tarps only lasts about 45 days. And normally, three week wait time with your insurance company to have them come out just to look at the property, 45 days isn’t going to last very long. So the shrink wrap is going to last six months to a year, and that is plenty enough time for us to get the claim completed and get your roof on installed properly.
So you can actually see, right now, this building has been red tagged so that the building can’t be occupied. No one can be inside. What we have is a structural engineer that’s on the way after all of this work has been completed to get the building reopened where they’ll actually be able to occupy the building once again.
So what we have so far, pastor reached out to us yesterday with damage to the property. We’re back out here today with our crews. They’re covering the building. We’re going to be shrinking this material around the property to prevent wind and water from getting underneath. Once we get this property approved, we’re going to be going back in with an Owens Corning Duration SureNail shingle that has 110 mile per hour wind resistancy that’s going to prevent this type of damage from having again in the future.
So if you’ve experienced the storm in your area and you’re looking for a contractor with the right experience to point you in the right direction, give us a call or check us out on the web, restoremastersllc.com. Thanks for watching.
