San Antonio Roofing Contractor asks if you think you have hail damage? Here is what you should do if you think you have hail damage.
We regularly see that after a hail storm many people don’t know whether or not they have any damage. This is because they cant see damage from the ground. Often, even when a homeowner goes up on to the roof the roof looks OK to their inexperienced eye. Your roof may be damaged even thought you look at your roof from the ground or go up onto your roof and it doesn’t appear to be damaged. It is always a good idea to have an experienced roofing professional perform the inspection.
If you think your roof may have hail damage, contact a San Antonio Roofing Contractor (Rhino Tuff Roofing will provide you with a free roof inspection) or your insurance company. Both will have trained professionals that can inspect your roof as well as the rest of your property.
There are many other things around your home that hail can damage for example windows, screens, gutters, siding, garage doors, BBQ grills, patio furniture, fences. As you can see there is a lot more to worry about than just your roof but it will be the most costly part. I recommend you contact a roofer. A good roofer will inspect your property and will walk you through the whole process. If you choose not to call a qualified roofer then you should contact your insurance co. They will set up an appointment with you to inspect your home and property.
Most companies are fair but it really is better to have someone who deals with this kind of stuff daily on your side. You can bet the insurance company will send a trained professional to your home to represent their interests. After the insurance company has done a roof inspection the adjuster will tell you his assessment and either prepare a report for you at that time or mail one to you later along with a check. Again its better to have someone there on your side.
I have seen many claims denied that, after calling the insurance company back for a re-inspection, we were able to get the insurance company to provide the customer a new roof. The paperwork you will receive from them can be confusing. The contractor that you choose should be able to look at the paperwork and see if you were paid fairly. If you have not been treated fairly he should know how to get the additional money from the insurance company for all the work that will be required.
If you have your San Antonio Roofing Contractor present at the time the adjuster comes to perform an inspection they can usually be in agreement on the scope of work that needs to be preformed before the adjuster leaves. This can eliminate time consuming delays and result with your home getting repaired faster.
