Hail and wind storms are forces of nature whose damage can be immediately visible or can appear long after the storm has gone. You can see the damage hail makes quite easily on your patio furniture, but not always so easily on your roof. Getting hit with hail and strong winds can cause damage to your shingles exposing the roofing material below thus shortening the life of your roof.
There are some things you should do after a hail or wind storm such as documenting the storm’s duration, hail size and wind direction and speed which will help in any recovery. If possible take photos of the hail and the visible damage from the storm.
If you have hail it is best to have your roof checked by reputable roofing professionals as some damage might not be easily seen. At Quality Roofing we have the experience and training to determine the level of hail damage to your roof and to help you replace or repair your roof.
What should you do after a hail storm? Follow these steps:
Step 1: Contact Todd at (970) 310-3467 and have him conduct a free roofing inspection and confirm any damage that may have taken place.
Step 2: Call your insurance agent to report the problem to your insurance company. Provide them information such as what the specific damage is and when it occurred. The insurance company will send an adjuster to your home to assess the condition of your roof.
Step 3: Schedule a meeting with the insurance adjuster. You can request a representative from Quality Roofing to be there during the meeting so that you can compare notes.
Step 4: After this meeting, the insurance adjuster will either provide you with a list of repairs that they will cover or ask you to get estimates from a local roofing contractor. Your insurance company will subtract your deductible from the amount they will pay for your roof.
Step 5: Schedule your roof repair with Quality Roofing after you receive a check from your insurance company.
Important Reminder: Each insurance company will handle roof hail damage differently. At Quality Roofing, we have experience working with many insurance agencies.
