The need for repairs to your home doesn’t pause for viruses. Plus, winter will be here before you know it. It’s tempting to procrastinate on home repairs, thinking you’ll get to it when things get back to normal. The truth is, no one knows when things will go back to normal. So, if your roof is leaking or in need of repair, it’s time to get on it. We’ll explain how to get the necessary work done safely, without exposing yourself, your family, or the workers to COVID-19.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
Roof repairs are especially important to take care of immediately. If your roof is leaking, every raindrop that comes through will make the water damage worse and worse – and problem is amplified even more during a major downpour and thunderstorm. Your roof is one of those things that you can’t let slide – the risk of increasing damage is just too high. Luckily, there are solutions to coordinating the work that minimize the risk of continued roof damage AND exposure to COVID-19 (we’ll explain the specifics below).
Get an Estimate – Zero Contact
Husker Hammer has plenty of options to handle your initial consultation and get your estimate without any risk of exposure. From new solutions like video conferencing to the good old phone call, there are plenty of ways to talk to prospective contractors from the safety of your home. You can have a video call using apps like FaceTime or set up a Zoom call. When you’re ready for a Husker Hammer team member to come out and inspect things in person to generate an estimate, there’s no reason we can’t be up on your roof or the exterior of your house while you talk to them from inside. Or even better, we can call you on the phone after the inspection to discuss further. Feel free to ask us how we plan on handling things without face to face contact – we’ve gotten this question before and already have a plan.
Visualize Your Choices from Home
If you’re doing a full replacement of your roof, as opposed to just repairs, you may want to see what your house will look like with your new shingles. At Husker Hammer, we have access to technology that will load a photo of your home and allow digital exploration of products and colors to implement in your next install.
They Stay Outside; You Stay Inside
Barring the truly unforeseen, there’s no reason anyone should be entering your home to work on your roof. You can continue living your normal life inside while we’re up on the roof and outside. If there’s some reason that interior work needs to be done (like water damage from a leak), you can always take care of that when it’s safer, once the source of the problem is taken care of.
There’s No Reason to Wait
Gain peace of mind knowing your roof is in good condition and that your family was kept safe during the installation. If you’d like our help with your next remodeling or repair project, you can contact us for a free estimate at (402)-894-9525 or reach out to us here.
