It’s important to know how to deal with damage caused by the elements, and hail is one of the most serious causes of roofing damage that you can encounter. After a serious weather event, it’s important to contact a trusted roofing company for a thorough inspection. The quicker you get your roof inspected, the earlier you can file an insurance claim to get issues covered.
Don’t Wait for Too Long
The last thing that you should do after a severe weather event is to panic. You should get in touch with your roofing contractor and insurance provider right away. Remember that roofing and insurance companies cater to customers on a first-come, first-serve basis, especially for storm-prone areas. It’s also important to work with a certified roofing company in the first place.
Take Note of the Important Details
Take note of the time and date when you’ve encountered hail or storm damage and document these important details. Make multiple copies of your documentation for good measure. Your roofing company recommends checking from the ground up for damage. Don’t forget to check other parts of your home, like the windows, doors and HVAC unit. Your photos should clearly show the damaged parts of your home, and you can even use a ruler to show its size.
Secure Multiple Estimates
We strongly recommend securing at least three estimates to get a clear idea how much it will cost to repair the affected parts of your roofing system. Also, don’t be afraid to negotiate with your insurer if you think that their claim check isn’t reasonable. You aren’t obliged to accept your insurance provider and you can hire an independent adjuster for transparency purposes.
