Storm Damage Concerns
Storms in the midwest occur every year, mainly in the spring and fall. When is a good time to schedule a free roof inspection? One time to have an inspection is after a storm has produced hailstones in excess of 1 inch or bigger. The same is true for wind storms with sustained speeds over 50 mph. This is especially important if the rain was heavy as well. Broken branches/limbs, fallen trees, or winds in excess of 70 mph often destroy a roof and require immediate action. For all of these situations, we have solutions and will work with your insurance company to help find a quick & fair resolution.
Concerns Caused by Hail
It’s hard to detect hail damage, especially looking at your roof from the ground. Did you know if your area has experienced a hailstorm, there’s a possibility that the hail has picked your roof enough to cause a harmful amount of granule loss? Not only will this void the manufacturers warranty but it will shorten the life expectancy of your roof.
Hail damage can dent your gutters and your air-conditioning unit. If you notice wet spots on your ceilings, dents in cars, cracks in windows and siding it could also mean that you have had hail damage to your roof. If you have noticed any of these things it’s time to call Integrity for a free video inspection.
Wind Damage Concerns
Wind can lift shingles which can severely damage a roof. Older shingles and discontinued defective shingles are typically brittle and can fall apart easily. Poorly installed shingles are also at risk for numerous reasons – much of this has to do with the ridge caps which are at critical points of water intrusion. After a strong windstorm, 50+ mph of sustained winds, ridge caps with issues can be affected.
Your Insurance Claim
Your insurance company’s claim deadline can vary, but most insurers require that claims be filed within a limited time frame. Contact your insurance agent to find out the details about your individual claim deadline.
We represent you as the homeowner throughout the process. Filing a claim can be confusing and overwhelming, but our Insurance Claim Specialists persist until your insurance company has all the required information to complete your claim.
We will provide you with all the necessary information, explain the process to you, and help you understand your rights regarding your insurance claim.
The truth about your insurance company
If a storm has recently damaged your home, your first thought is probably “Oh great, now my insurance premiums are going to shoot through the roof.” The truth is, your insurance company won’t lay the blame completely on you for increased rates. They however are not prohibited from raising rates for everyone in an area. If your home sustains damage and you don’t file a claim, you still may end up paying more after the insurance company hikes rates to cover other repairs in your local area.
Getting a quote from a reputable, professional, and independent roof repair company ensures that all aspects of the job run smoothly. In addition, it will lower the cost of a new roof. We will work with you to navigate the process so both parties get what is needed to get the job completed in a timely fashion and with integrity.
When you need a roof repair, choose your contractor wisely
If your roof is leaking or just damaged, it may occur to you to try to fix the damage yourself to avoid the cost of a new roof. If you wish to proceed in filing an insurance claim, it’s not in your best interests to do the work on your own without help from a professional. If your home is fairly new and is under a builder’s warranty, you may believe you’re protected. However, builder’s warranties usually do not cover damage from storms.
A knowledgeable professional completing repairs on the damage to your roof and helping navigate you through the insurance claim process will help maintain the resale value of your home. After a storm, it’s typical to see many people acting as professionals come from everywhere to fix your roof. You’ve probably heard that you need to be careful about such individuals going door-to-door, but in the confusion after a big storm, it’s easy to be taken in.
If a contractor does come knocking on your door to solicit your business, do some research. Spend some time checking into the company to ensure that it has a good reputation and has legitimate training, insurance and licensing to perform the needed work.
Training makes all the difference
Knowledgeable inspectors consider your entire roof on a systems basis to evaluate damage and determine whether minor or significant repairs will be required. Qualified inspectors also undergo thorough training to locate hard-to-spot damage that could result in roof failure and compromise your home’s safety.
Specialized knowledge is paramount
Our process is to connect you with one of our highly knowledgeable, qualified representatives. They will be focusing not only on inspecting but also on guiding you through working with your insurance company to settle your claim and reduce the cost of a new roof or the repair of your existing one. The representative will understand your individual claim deadline and other information required for a successful resolution.
In the heat of the moment after a storm, you may be tempted to let the first contractor you see fix the damage. But your roofing system is vital to protecting your family and preserving the structural integrity and resale value of your home. Trust only reputable, certified professionals with such an important job.
