You should know that such roof damage can be undetected for some time without a consistent assessment. Has the strong storm currently affected the area? This could have impacted the quality of the roof without your knowledge. When those problems with the roof covering aren’t fixed, then this may lead to leaks as well as the potential for further damage that would include things like ruined insulation, rotting wood, damaged drywall and many others.
After such violent storms, the very important thing that you must do is to call for a professional roof inspection. The inspection would typically cost between 80 and 125 dollars. When the damage has been found, the cost may potentially go up. But, the price of failing to determine the damage may cause you to spend more and such could have been avoided when you conduct that home inspection.
Those tree branches which get broken after the storm should be removed to make sure of the safety of you and the home. This is often completed for a cost of about $250. The price may vary depending on the level of the intricacy and the size as well as the scope of the work that must be done.

When your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, then it is quite important that you get a professional HVAC system inspection done. The licensed inspector of your HVAC will determine the different areas which need improvement, whether the unit is working well and if any maintenance is needed. They could also provide you with some recommendations that could help to improve the performance of the system, its longevity and safety too. Such inspections would cost in the range of a hundred dollars but you may find them even less. This is actually more affordable as compared to having to replace the HVAC system prematurely because of not being able to maintenance the system. You must understand that not performing the regular maintenance may lead to several negative results that would include such shortened equipment life, fire and also reduced efficiency.
