Spring is great time to have a roof inspection on your home. This will give you a good baseline regarding any hail damage to your roof that may be left from storms last year. It will also make is easier for your roofing contractor to see new hail damage should it occur during the summer storm season this year.
Why is it important to repair your roof?
One of the most important investments you’ll ever make in your life is your home. Your home’s roof protects your family, your investment, and your personal items from the elements. Repairs maintain your value, yes, but making repairs to your roof is also a requirement of most mortgage companies. Your insurance company also has limitations on the time from a hail event until your turn in a claim. Most of the time this window is two years. If you have damage and you turn in a claim in the specified time period, you’re more likely to have your claim covered by your homeowners policy. See more on this below.
Why should you get a roof inspection after a storm?
Midwest storms can leave behind minimal or extreme damage, and that will most often affect the exterior of your home. Hailstorms are especially hazardous because they can leave hidden damage on your roof—you might not be able to see it from the ground, so it’s recommended to have it inspected. It’s best to bring in experts in roofing and storm restoration so they can give your roof a proper assessment.
What’s the process for insurance?
A standard homeowner’s policy should cover storm damage from occurrences like wind, hail, and lightning. However, insurance companies will need the storm event date for the claim, and they typically have a 2-year limit. This is why it’s so important to get your roof checked out before and after storm season. When you hire a trusted roofing company, they should be able to help you with the insurance claim. For example, we use the same software that 90% of insurance agencies are using for claim loss, so we get them completed for our customers in a timely manner. This allows us to excel over competitors and better serve you through the entire insurance process.
