Wondering how you can find a reputable source for hail damage repair without damaging your finances?
If you live in an area prone to storms, you likely need to think about hail damage repair at some point. Hail, especially when urged along by powerful winds, can cause a surprising amount of damage to even the sturdiest rooftops. These ice pellets can split wooden shingles, deteriorate roofing materials and even punch holes into your roof’s protective covering.
Over time, the damage caused by hailstones can lead to even more problems. Eventually, degraded and damaged shingles will allow moisture to leak through the rooftop and into your home. It is therefore crucial that you have hail damage repaired before complications like this can arise. If you’re worried about the costs involved, read on for information that may prove helpful.
Hailstorm Damage Inspections Identify If Repair or Replacement Is Necessary
The amount of damage your roof suffers from hail can vary greatly. It depends on factors like the duration and severity of the storm and the rooftop’s materials. The first step toward getting repairs (or a replacement) is to have the roof inspected. To best understand the roof’s status and condition in the aftermath of a hailstorm, the inspector would look for water damage as a result of hail impact, damaged shingles and pock marks. A roofer can do this inspection, or if you’re filing a claim, your insurance company might do the inspection. Having it performed by both is best — assuming you hope to get the compensation you deserve.
Can Multiple Hail Damage Inspections Help?
When your roof has hail damage and you’re making an insurance claim, in most cases an insurance company will hire their own inspector. Sometimes the insurance company rejects the amount of damage you attempted to claim, but that doesn’t mean you’re helpless! You can get a free estimate from another roofer, which may grant you some leverage and help justify your claim if the insurance company doesn’t agree on the amount of damage. Of course, if you hire the right roofing contractor for the job, that would be only one of the many benefits.
