KTM has reported a surge of inbound calls from people in Atlanta looking for help from KTM's master roofers to fix their leaking roof.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 22, 2009
KTM Roofing is urging Atlanta residents to inspect their attics for potential leaks. The September 2009 rain storms that moved through Atlanta resulted in numerous homes reporting a leaking roof. It is recommended homeowners inspect their home for potential signs of water damage. If homeowners detect damage, they are advised to contact a reliable roofing contractor such as KTM Roofing.
A Potential Surge in Atlanta Roof Insurance Claims:
Similar to Atlanta roof hail damage in the spring this fall is likely to see a surge of roofing projects on the exterior and interior of metro Atlanta homes. Just like the spring, the damage is expected to be potentially expensive to insurance companies because many home insurance policies cover the interior of the home should it sustain damage from a leaking roof. The historic September rains that have already saturated many homes are likely to result in a surge of insurance claims throughout the fall months of September, October and November are covered for damages if the inside of their home is damaged.
In the 25 years KTM has been a roofing company, it has been extremely rare to see attics sustain the type of leak damage that they have this year. After nearly a week of saturating rain, several Atlanta roofs couldn't handle the additional precipitation and residents throughout metro Atlanta have been flooding KTM's phone looking for help and tips on repairing their leaking roofs.
Tim McLoughlin, President of KTM Roofing explains, "KTM has reported a surge of inbound calls from people in Atlanta looking for help from KTM's master roofers to fix their leaking roof." McLoughlin added, "The rain that has occurred in the recent week is not typical and has resulted in revealing roofing flaws that were previously unknown by these homeowners."
McLoughlin suggests the roof flaws are more common than people realize and typically are a result of workmanship flaws during the roof installation. He adds, "When a home's roof is installed, the toe board is nailed into the roof. Not all roofing companies seal the hole left by the nail. Even though the hole is only the size of a 'bb' it can cause a lot of damage if the rain conditions are right. Some homeowners won't see any problems with their roof for upwards of 15 years, but get a long stretch of intense rain -- like Atlanta has seen in September -- will result in the attic becoming potentially wet with the ability to seep into the living spaces below."
Keith Hanks of Atlanta internet marketing agency TwentySix2 Marketing adds, "The demand for instant local news coverage for the September 2009 rain and flooding has sent consumers online looking for the most up to date coverage. Like the Atlanta spring hail storms of 2008 and 2009 it is assumed search engine demand will quickly increase for those looking for Atlanta roof repair, including Atlanta roof leak repair solutions as a result of these storms. To be prepared, KTM has upgraded its website to meet the demand for common consumer questions that are related to leaking roofs after a severe storm."
