Storm Damage and Insurance Claims

If you are concerned there is damage to your roof system, contact us and we will come out to determine how much damage has occured. Roofs are a dangerous place for most homeowners, so getting a Professional Roofing Inspector to complete an inspection is always recommended.

If your roof is determined to have un-repairable damage due to hail or wind, your Insurance company will need to verify the damage and approve a claim for replacement. We have been working with homeowners for years and we understand the process for excellence in roof replacement. Our Inspectors can help answer questions you may have during the process. If the Insurance company agrees that your damage is covered under your policy, you will receive an approval for replacement.

Storm Damage Prevention

Roof leaks can be caused by many different things. Storm damage from hail, tree damage from falling limbs, damage by people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles…the list goes on and on. However, 90% of all roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. Rarely does the actual roofing product fail.

Flashing is found near any roof penetration area such as chimneys, walls, vent pipes, and as chimneys, walls, vent pipes, and valley areas where roof angles join together. During a roof repair, it is necessary to look for any other roof damage that could lead to additional problems. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to be exposed to the elements.
