Tree uprooted in front yard Follow these steps for less stress after a fallen tree incident.

When a tree falls on your roof, it can cause many problems.  It can damage your home's structure, it exposes your home to the elements, and increases risk of other damage from electrical sources.  Below are steps of who to call after a tree falls on your Pullman home.

  1. Make contact with necessary individuals - first you'll want to call your insurance company to consider coverage.  Then call a tree removal company, someone to tarp the roof, and a roofer.  Lastly, call SERVPRO of Allegan / Barry County if you need water restoration inside your home.
  2. Remove the tree - we are not able to address water issues until the damaged area of the roof is cleared.
  3. Tarp exposed areas - a fallen tree most likely will cause damage to the roof, leaving it exposed.  To ensure outside elements do not get in and cause more damage, tarping temporarily protects your home so SERVPRO of Allegan / Barry County can mitigate the water damage inside.
  4. Contact a roofing contractor - you can not leave your roof tarped forever.  You will need to get with a roofing company to determine the next phase of repairs to your roof.

A fallen tree can cause a lot of damage and stress.  The above steps can help ease the stress.  Call SERVPRO of Allegan / Barry County today, 269-686-0664
