After a storm with hail or high winds, you should have your roofing system checked to determine if there is any damage. While some storms may seem minor, they can still leave behind significant destruction. Wind can unseal and blow off shingles or drive tree limbs into your roof. Even small hailstones can ruin a roof, voiding your warrantee and reducing its water-shedding life down to 2-5 years.
If you do have damage (or if you’re not sure), call a trusted roofing company first. Homeowners who are working with an experienced contractor almost always get a better result and have a smoother repair process than property owners who do not have a contractor present for the insurance assessments. If damage is minimal, save yourself from having to file a claim at all! If you have damage, we can advise you on how to get the best result through your carrier. Our services provide you an independent assessment including photography of the damage and a complete accounting of everything that has been damaged taking into consideration code-changes and installation &repair practices that will ensure you have a warrantee on the finished product.
If a major storm has affected your neighborhood, then you’ll probably start noticing an increase in contractors offering free inspections and roof services. While there are many great contractors that do this type of work, some will be “storm chasers.”
Storm chasers are usually small, traveling contractors from a different state, following storm after storm to collect easy business. The problem with these contractors is they usually don't have the skilled labor or experience to service you properly. Chose an established contractor with a deep labor pool, more experience, and a location reasonably near your area. Check reviews, check the Better Business Bureau, check licensing.
