Bad weather can strike when you least expect it, so you need to be prepared. Hail is a major hazard in Illinois, in particular, so you should know how to deal with an insurance claim if hail damages your roof. In this article, Steinmeyer Roofing, INC., one of the top roofing companies in our area, gives tips to help you with your hail damage insurance claim.
What to Do After a Hail Storm
If your roof is damaged by a hail storm then you need to contact your insurance company as soon as possible. They will send someone to assess the damage to your property. While waiting for them to arrive, you should take photos of your home for your records. The more photos and documentation you can provide to your insurance company, the better. If there is a hole in your roof and a roof leak, then you should also call us.
We can perform temporary repairs to protect your home from water damage. We can also provide you with a roof estimate so you can figure out the work that needs to be done on your home. In order to keep things clear and transparent, we can provide you with all of the information that you need in writing, including the cost, work needed and schedule.
How We Can Help You
Hail impacts can accelerate granule loss and shingle deterioration, even if they don’t punch holes in the roof. You need to call us for an inspection after a hail storm because the storm damage might not be visible to the naked eye. Once your adjuster has arrived to assess the damage to your home, we can meet with them to share our findings and ensure that all damage to your home is documented.
