Identifying Roof Hail Damage
Hail damage to your roof looks differently depending on the material. Asphalt shingles may show loose granules exposing the roof felt where wood shingles might show splits or notches out of corners and edges.
The biggest problem with damaged roofing materials is the possibility of water penetrating the material to the felt or even plywood underneath. This can cause leaking into your attic space where you may not even realize it’s further damaging your home. If the roof leaks through into the interior, you will be faced with a much bigger problem.
Get your roof inspected ASAP by a trusted, experienced contractor like us after a storm to keep the costs as low as possible.
Hail Damaged Siding
When a storm wreaks havoc on your siding, the first thing you should do is contact a siding contractor, like C’s Exterior Designs. We will inspect the damage and give you a clear, specific estimate so you are already armed with accurate information before you call the insurance company. We are happy to negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf to ensure you are getting every possible detail included in your claim. You don’t want surprises so it’s in your best interests to have an advocate on your side who has experience dealing with insurance claims.
General Do's and Don'ts for Handling Hail Damage
- DO: Meet with a contractor. Get an estimate up front so you are armed with data independent of your insurance company.
- DO: Use a contractor of your own choice. You shouldn’t feel pressured to use a contractor because the insurance company told you to. Those companies typically have the insurance companies interests in mind, not yours.
- DON’T: Accept the adjuster’s first offer. Sometimes they will downplay the damages or forget to add in all the details needed to do the job right.
- DON’T: Sign with any contractor that shows up at your door. These are called ‘Storm Chasers’ and they don’t have knowledge of the local weather patterns or snow loads and promise fast and cheap service. Researching local companies will get you the best result and best service available.
The Importance of Acting Quickly
The Billings area has seen a handful of storms over the last few years causing many phone calls to our local contractors. The longer you wait, the more your neighbors and other property owners will fill in their schedules ahead of you.
Mold and rot are a danger to consider if water can penetrate the roof or side walls of your home from hail damage. A much bigger problem can evolve from leaving damaged sections, pieces or holes untreated or uncovered.
