Spot Any Existing Roof Damage
Make sure your roof is watertight before Orlando’s hurricane season begins! This gives your roof the best possible defense against storm damage. Look to see if any shingles are loose or damaged, or if there are any cracks in the flashing.
Ask Your Roofing Contractor To Investigate Your Roof

Eliminate Pre-Existing Conditions
If your roof suffers from storm damage during hurricane season, you will have to provide evidence to the insurance company. Your insurance company may try to claim that any storm damage was a pre-existing condition of the roof. They may dispute that the damage has happened during the current hurricane season.
Document the current state of your home’s exterior by recording dated footage. This will enable you to show:
The condition of your roof.
The condition of any trees close to your home.
That you have cut any trees that you are responsible for.
The condition of any neighbors’ trees.
That you do not have any outdoor furniture that could blow around outside and damage your property and your neighbors’ properties.
The location of any neighbors’ outdoor furniture, such as trampolines.
