Hail Damage and Roof Repair!
First thing to do look for a local Roofing contractor. The guys who chase storms from state to state will gone should a problem arise with your new roof. Most will do the minimum when it comes to the work because they know they can’t honor a warranty. Also they will not know local building codes. All of these issues will leave you paying more out of pocket to fix their mistakes. Most insurance companies will let you pick what roofing repair contractor you want. Be careful of so called traveling contractors. Deal with a local Roofing contractor piece of mind and a local warranty. Not someone pressuring you to sign a contract on that day. No legitimate contractor will use high pressure sales tactics.
Wait! Don’t File a Claim.
Don’t just file an insurance claim for your roofing hail damage. If you file a claim and there is not enough damage to cover the deductible, the insurance company will pay nothing, but that claim will still count against you. You should contact a local qualified roofing contractor, to inspect your roof and inform you if there is enough damage to file a claim. If the contractor informs you there is severe damage and a high probability of damage and leaking then have a tarp installed quickly. They are ugly but so is water damage from inside your home. Your insurance will cover the cost.
Hail damage to your roof can be inconvenient, but it can give you the opportunity to replace the most import and expensive part of your home. Don’t just pick a roof that meets the minimum building code requirements. Take time and look at upgrading your roof that has higher ratings for any future storms. A longer warranty and maybe a call 4 hail storm impact rating. It cost a little more, but the peace of mind of and potential discount from the insurance company may make it worth the extra expense. There are a few qualified contractors like our company that can offer financing for the upgrades and/or your deductible. Today may be the perfect time to finance your repairs and improvements and use the insurance money to pay down your debt.
