How do I know if I have roof/storm damage?
Usually hail damage is only noticeable upon close inspection. In the end, only a
professional inspection can determine the extent or existence of hail damage on
your roof or siding. Even adjusters will sometimes miss the damages if they aren't visible
upon a first glance.
Different materials on your home show hail and wind damages differently. For example:
- Tile Roofs that have severely cracked tiles may be easy to spot from the ground.
However minors cracks might not be so obvious, but tiny fractures can exist even
if you don't see them. Wind can also pull these tiles loose and without a thorough
inspection this can often be missed. And the worst part is that very few homeowners
know how to walk on these roofs without causing damage while inspecting them.
- You know wood shake has been damaged when you can see fresh wood or cracks, but
sometimes damages aren't that obvious. This damage can fade over time but can continue
to allow further damage to occur.
- Even a tiny crack or dent is enough to compromise siding. In the example of wood
siding once the top layer of paint is cracked it will allow water to penetrate the
wood and cause it to rot and deteriorate while still appearing undamaged to the
untrained eye. Metal siding will usually have dents that may be very hard to see.
Vinyl siding may only have one crack or hole on a house but if not addressed can
cause severe water damage to the walls and foundation without every seeing evidence
of it inside the house.
- Trim, windows, fascia & gutters usually have soft metals that are easily damaged,
especially by hail.
How much will it cost to get my roof replaced and house fixed?
A homeowners should never pay more than the total of their deductible for repairs
relating to an insurance claim. We make it a point to have the homeowners total
out of pocket expense spelled out in black and white from day one. We do it right
and make sure there are no surprises!
If a contractor says they can "waive your deductible" or give you some kind of a "credit" be very weary! It is illegal to do so and there is a good chance they will involve you in insurance fraud. If they don't have the integrity to operate legally what else will they compromise on? We pride ourselves on operating in both a legal and ethical manner.
What if my insurance company estimate is too low or they deny my claim?
If you think your insurance company has underestimated the repair costs, DO NOT PANIC. Let us make our own inspection and estimate and we'll negotiate with the adjuster to reach an agreed scope of damage and repair price to properly amend the settlement. If the insurer isn't satisfied with the information we give them they will send a re-inspector out to correct any errors. We will happily meet with the inspector and insure that all damages are accounted for and all our repairs concerns are addressed. Our representatives are well trained in what storm damage looks like and documenting these damages. You pay your hard earned dollars for the coverage and we will fight for our customers to the bitter end to reach an agreed scope and price we can complete the repairs properly. In most cases this process is rather simple but sometimes claims get denied or only partially approved.
If the insurance company denies your claim, or a select part of the damages, there could be a number of reasons why:
1. There were not damages or the adjuster didn't notice the damages.
2. The insurance adjuster missed something which led them to believe the damages weren't covered.
3. The adjustment was correct and the policy does not cover the damages.
If for some reason your claim is denied and there is clearly damages present we will direct your policy for options be it; taking your claim to independent appraisal or litigation whatever your policy specifies.You will always be taken care of with Strong. We're here to help in any way we can and specialize in storm damage restoration. Sometimes that means going to great lengths to help our customers through a loss!
What if I don’t repair my roof/property?
If you choose to wait or not file a claim you should know that your policy states
that you have a limited amount of time from the date of loss to file a claim. Once that
time period has ended the insurance company no longer has any obligation to pay
anything for the damages. They furthermore generally will exclude having to cover any the existing
damage should you have another loss.
If the roof on your home is damaged the insurance company is obligated to pay to
have it repaired or replaced. Choosing not to make repairs can cost you as much,
if not more, than the repairs would. Any initial profit is soon negated as you will
still be paying premiums on a roof that is no longer covered. The manufacturer warranties
are void at that point as well and your home is for all practical purposes uninsured.
After you file a claim you usually will have a limited amount of time to make the repairs and the insurance
company uses recoverable depreciation (the second check received) to verify that
the repairs were made. In the end, choosing not to repair your home usually costs
you more than your deductible would have, and the value of your home is substantially
While these damages might not pose an immediate threat to your home, in as little
as a year or two these small spots can turn into large holes, and by then it might be
too late to file a claim or complete the repairs.
