By April 28, 2023 May 26th, 2023 No Comments

Storm damage to your home can be unexpected, frustrating, and overwhelming. That’s why it’s critical to rely on trusted, experienced professionals for guidance. At Royalty, we’ve been helping families recover from damaging weather for over 10 years. We’ve perfected the process to make it stress-free and simple for you, so you can rest assured knowing your home is protected. If you believe your home has been compromised by a severe storm, here are 3 steps you should take.

1. Inspect

Once the storm has passed and it is safe to go outside, take a walk around your home and do a quick visual inspection. Do you see dented, cracked, or shifted siding? Are your roof shingles broken, missing, or dented? Do your windows have broken panes or cracked, dented, or damaged frames? Are your gutters bent, drooping, or detached? Make note of any damage you notice, and take photos for your own records. Cover exposed areas on your roof, siding, or windows with a tarp or plastic in order to avoid leaks.

“Shout out to Nick and his team at Royalty Roofing for helping us through a challenging time. When the derecho hit the Marion/Cedar Rapids area, we were in shock to see a branch protruding into our home. Needless to say there was lots of roof and siding damage. Nick, worked with our insurance company to expeditiously get the roof and siding replaced. It was such a relief to know that we were protected from any additional rain damage. Can’t thank you enough!!” – Janel Mamer

“We would recommend Royalty Roofing without hesitation. They are honest, reliable, and super efficient. They worked with us from start to finish after a bad storm when we were totally overwhelmed – including help with hauling away debris, completing a comprehensive insurance assessment and estimate, communicating with our insurance company, and making sure all repairs were done. It is great to have a company that can not only inspect and repair your roof, but also your windows and gutters. That way, we did not have to deal with estimates for 3 different repairs and 3 different companies. They are a family-owned company that goes the extra mile with extraordinary follow up and service after the sale. Royalty Roofing is definitely a 5-star company!” – Charles Barnes

“Kyle and the entire team at Royalty Roofing are great! They worked directly with our insurance company and even advocated to get some damage taken care of that the insurance company missed or didn’t think was significant enough. The entire company truly embraces their values: Honesty & Integrity, Excellence & Value, Responsibility & Teamwork. They are committed to servicing their customers with the highest character and integrity. It’s great when you can work with a company who lives and breathes what they preach. I highly recommend Royalty Roofing for any roofing, siding, windows or gutter repair/replacement that you might need.” – Kim Earl
