We recently experienced a hail storm. How can we know if our roof was damaged?
If your roof was damaged in a hail storm, you may notice signs of damage such as dents in metal roofing, missing or cracked shingles, or granules from asphalt shingles in your gutters. If you suspect that your roof has been damaged, it is important to have it inspected by a qualified roofing contractor as soon as possible to determine the extent of the damage and whether repairs or replacement are necessary.
You will want to find a qualified roofing company to help. Not all roofers are the same and you want to make sure you have a good warranty so be sure you find one that will warranty their work.
Make sure that you get multiple quotes from different roofing contractors before making a decision. Be sure to ask each contractor about their qualifications, experience, and warranty coverage. Once you have selected a contractor, be sure to get everything in writing.
If your roof was damaged in a hail storm and you have insurance, be sure to contact your insurance company to file a claim. They will likely require an inspection by a licensed roofing contractor before they will approve repairs or replacement.
You should also be aware that most home insurance policies have a deductible for hail damage, so you may be responsible for paying part or all of the repair or replacement costs out-of-pocket.
If your roof was damaged in a hail storm and you do not have insurance, you will be responsible for the entire cost of repairs or replacement. Be sure to get multiple quotes from different roofing contractors to get the best price possible. Financing may also be an option to help you pay for the cost of repairs or replacement.
