We had a pretty wicked storm not long ago. I was really worried about the trees on our property because some of them are pretty tall. I had good reason to be worried because one of them came down about midway through the storm. It actually hit the corner of the house, but then it bounced away. I thought we got lucky, but it turned out that there was some roof damage after all. I went online to find a company that does roof repair in Brooklyn NY and was able to find a reputable company that came out the next day.
I chose them for a few reasons. The first is because there were so many positive reviews about them in one of the local forums that I go to when I have questions about local companies. Another reason is because they were able to come out the very next day. They did say they may not be able to take care of the damages that day, but they would do whatever was necessary to make sure that the roof did not leak. They also are insured and have been in business for a very long time, and those things really matter.
I did not want anyone coming out who would hold me liable if they got hurt or caused any additional damage. I also did not want someone who was just learning the ropes. I know we all have to start somewhere, but this was my house we were talking about. I wanted someone experienced, and that is exactly what I got. Even better, I was able to have all of the work done that same day. They assessed the damage, and then they were able to fix it within a short period of time. I hope I never have to go through that again, but they are the ones I will call if I do.
