Has my home been in the path of recent storms and has it been damaged?

The First Step of determining your roof condition and future lifespan is to review wind speed and hail size data from past storms that your roofing has weathered. If your roof has been exposed to storms with intensity above normal wear and tear, we recommend having your roof inspected close up to determine if there was any damage.

Don't Miss Your Window To File A Claim

90% of storm related roof damage is undetectable from the ground and requires a closeup inspection to see what impact hail, wind, snow/ice have had on the remainder of the life of your roofing. Most homeowners have never been on nor plan to be on their roof which leaves most storm related roof damage undetected until roof failure which most likely will be outside of time required to file an insurance claim for the weather event that caused the damage.

Why have a roof inspection?

After a storm we recommend having your roof inspected as soon as possible to determine the potential extent of roof damage and if you should file an insurance claim.

Your roof may have been damaged enough to be leaking, exposing the interior of your home to water which can lead to · Rotten structural wood · Damage to insulation · Damage to sheet rock or plaster · Bubbling, blistering paint Mold and mildew An inspection gives you the details needed to make a plan for repairs.

Insurance companies generally request storm damage first be inspected by a professional roofing company with storm damage experience to help determine if damage will exceed your deductible before filing a claim and having them out to assess damage. If the damage exceeds your deductible your roof repair/replacement may be covered 100% by your insurance (regardless of age) with you only being responsible for your deductible which generally ranges from $250 to $1000.

Having a professional roofing company with storm damage experience inspect your roof will provide you with a report that gives

  • Pictures of the roof and close up pictures of any damage that is present
  • Probable cause and storm date of when the damage likely occurred
  • Recommendations for repair/replacement (can shingles be repaired? matched? Available?)
  • Whether damage exceeds deductible

Once you have information on the extent, cause and probable date of damage you can use this information to answer questions your insurance carrier may have when you contact them to file a claim.

  • Type of Damage ( Hail, wind, etc)
  • Date of Loss
  • Are there immediate repairs needed
  • Will repairs exceed your deductible
