Nor’Easter Hits South Jersey

South Jersey, is a target for these damaging storms called, Nor’easters.  Nor’easters tend to form along the coastline which is reason for much devastation to our Jersey Shore line.  Nor’easters however, also affect areas more inland and bring heavy rains and high damaging winds.

Over the past several days we have felt the affect of yet another Nor’easter.  From the Jersey Shore line as far into as Cherry Hill, NJ, South jersey has been affected by these storms.

We, at Universal Roofing and Contracting, Inc. have seen a significant rise in our phone calls.  People have reached out who need emergency service, due to the damage from the storm.  South Jersey is built with many different roofing systems to accommodate residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

We have had many homeowners call because of the damage that took place to their property.  Trees have fallen and branches or entire trees have been seen to puncture people’s roofs.  Shingle roof systems have been affected.  People are experiencing minimal damage such as one or two shingles blown off.  While others are in a much more unfortunate position as their entire roof system has been uplifted and blown off.

Missing shingles and roofing material leads to leakage which can be devastating to one’s home.  Water intrusion is truly devastating to one’s home and if not remedied fast enough can cause saturation leading to mold and mildew growth.

Universal Roofing & Contracting, Inc. are here to help homeowners with emergency repairs to protect the interior of their homes.  We are offering emergency services such as roof repairs and also tarps to help protect their home,while waiting for either roof repair or replacement.

Though homeowner’s insurance can be a possibility in funding the repairs, the process can take awhile, leading to frustration.  Universal Roofing & Contracting, Inc. can help with the entire process from protecting your home, providing emergency service, supply an estimated cost for repair or replacement of the roof, talk with insurance adjusters and supplying temporary tarps or repairs.
