INDIANAPOLIS – Central Indiana roofing companies have been busy over the past couple of weeks after heavy rains have cause many roofs to spring leaks.

“We'll send out an estimator to do a very thorough inspection,” said Arianna Applewhite of Fentress Builders. “We'll contact your insurance company once we know you have sufficient damage. The adjustor will come out and we'll take care of you."

Kevin Williams said his home sustained lots of damage last week.

"We had a leak in our kitchen and we had a tree come through our bathroom,” said Williams. “It was really important for us to get it done in a quick and efficient manner."

Even some of the smaller companies have been busy making repairs.

“We don't have an enormous amount of crews,” said Jacob Nichols, owner of Nichols Brothers Roofing and Exteriors. “We've got as much work as we can handle right now. It's been pretty much sunup to sundown. As long as it hasn't been raining and we can work, it’s been sunup to sundown the last month easily."
