Why get a roof inspection before a storm?

When it comes to your roof, an important part of protection is prevention.

Whatever the result of the inspection, knowing the condition of your roof can give you greater peace of mind.

Why get a roof inspection after a storm?

Nothing is more important than your safety and the safety of your home. Some roof damage, like missing shingles, is easy to see. But other types of damage may not be as obvious. If you experience a hailstorm and see dings or dents on windowsills, gutters, or your car, there might be damage to your roof. Finding paint chipped off your home may be another indicator. Whatever the cause, if you suspect your roof was damaged please reach out today to schedule an inspection.

What to expect after your roof inspection:

  1. If there’s damage, we’ll share our findings with you so you can decide whether a claim with your insurance company is necessary.
  2. If you decide to file a claim, we’ll provide documentation of the damage that you can submit to your insurance company.
  3. After you file a claim, an insurance adjuster will likely visit your property to conduct an assessment. If permitted, we’ll be happy to meet with them to align on the scope of repairs and answer any questions they might have.
  4. If the claim is approved, we’ll meet with you to review options and choose roofing materials.
  5. Typically, when repairing damage after a storm, roofing work is scheduled before other repairs. Depending on your particular situation, you may choose to have work done at the same time.
  6. We’ll submit completion paperwork to your insurance company to certify the work is completed.
  7. Once the insurance company verifies the work is complete, it will issue payment to you.
