Storm Damage Repairs and Replacement

Damaging storms hit the Midwest every year, bringing howling winds, stinging rain, and worst of all, hail. Depending on the type of material your roof is made of, signs of damage may vary. One thing all roofs have in common is metal accessories, such as vents and valleys. These are good starting points to check for hail and storm damage. Our experienced roofers at 1st Choice Roofing can find any dents and dings in the metal areas of our roof, then get to work making repairs. If you need your entire roof replaced with a brand-new one, we can do that too!

Signs of Storm Damage on Different Types of Roofs

Asphalt - Hail damage can be recognized on asphalt shingles when there are missing granules. When hailstones are large enough to cause damage, granules are knocked off shingles entirely. Other obvious signs include shingles totally blown off your roof or cracked shingles.

Metal - Hail damage to a metal roof will look the same as damage to the metal accessories mentioned above. Dings and dents in metal panels show that hail has left a mark on your metal roof, compromising the entire roofing system.

Wood - Wood shake shingles can split when they are hit by large enough hailstones. Pea-sized hail rarely leaves enough damage, but hailstones that are 3/4" or larger in diameter can certainly cause splits or punctures in a wooden shake shingle. Hail damage can also be spotted by a noticeable loss of moss or organic material that had grown on your shingles.

Insurance Claims on Storm Damage

Sometimes, hail damage to a roof is discovered a while after the storm has passed. Most insurance companies will allow a 12-month window from when the storm hits to file your claim. If you believe your roof has been compromised by a recent hailstorm and you need to file an insurance claim, contact 1st Choice Roofing. We are your local roof repair insurance claim specialists.

Insurance Claims Process for Getting a New Roof

Dealing with insurance claims for a new roof can be overwhelming, but understanding the process can help streamline the experience. Here's a step-by-step guide to navigating the insurance claims process for getting a new roof:

  1. Assess Damage: If your roof has been damaged due to a covered peril, such as a storm, hail, or fire, document the damage immediately. Take photos and videos from various angles to provide evidence of the extent of the damage.
  2. Contact Your Insurance Company: Notify your insurance company as soon as possible to initiate the claims process. Provide them with all relevant information, including the date of the incident, a description of the damage, and any documentation you have gathered.
  3. Schedule an Inspection: Your insurance company will likely send an adjuster to inspect the damage and assess the cost of repairs or replacement. Be sure to request that 1st Choice Roofing Specialist is present during the inspection to ensure that all damage is properly documented.
  4. Obtain Estimates: The insurance adjuster will provide a quote for the cost of repairs or replacement and 1st Choice Roofing will provide a detailed estimate to your insurance company and reach a price agreeable to all parties.
  5. Once It’s Approved: During this process, your insurance company will issue a damage report and/or check for the ACV pay for repairs or replacements. Once you receive the paperwork and/or check, contact 1st Choice to place your deposit and get your roof replacement/repair scheduled.
  6. Final Inspection: After your roof is complete, there will be a final inspection done by 1st Choice Roofing and then a final invoice will be issued to you and your insurance company to verify the work has been completed. Once your insurance company issues the remainder payment, your final payment to 1st Choice Roofing is due.

Navigating the insurance claims process for a new roof can be complex, but with patience, preparation, and the assistance of experienced professionals, you can successfully navigate the process and restore your home's protection and value.
