Storm Damage Restoration

Hail and High Winds Wreak Havoc on Your Home.

Storm Damage Experts: An honest assessment of damage

Our storm damage restoration experts provide honest, thorough, expert assessments and advise you of their professional opinion on damage. Just because there was hail or high winds in your area does not necessarily mean there was damage to your home. Often times, the hail we see here in Colorado is soft and breaks apart on impact, which is less damaging than the solid hailstones we experienced in the 2017 catastrophic hail storm. There is a certain peace of mind that comes with the professional assessment of a long-standing roofing contractor who isn’t in the business to sell you a roof, but rather, is in the business to gain your trust and busines for life.

Hail Storms & Your Roof: What to do after the storm

After a hail storm passes, the clock starts ticking. This is because insurance claims for hail damage must typically be filed within a certain window of time. That makes paying attention to the destructive capabilities of the hail storm all the more important; if you know the hail was likely to damage your roof, a roof inspection becomes very necessary.

You can do a cursory visual inspection of your roof from the ground before calling in a professional roofer. First, look for any pieces of roofing that have fallen to the ground. This could include things such as shingles, chunks of tile, or pieces of flashing. Broken pieces of roofing material are the clearest evidence of damage to your roof. Next, you can look for more circumstantial evidence of damage. For example, take a look at other portions of your home’s exterior. If you find dented gutters, broken siding, and damaged decks or fencing, it’s very likely that your roof has sustained damage as well.

In doing this cursory inspection, it’s very important to stay off your roof. While walking on your roof is never a good idea at the best of times, it’s even more risky when your roof has just been hit by a hail storm. Walking around could worsen existing damage to your roof, and it’s generally best left to the experts. If you note any signs of hail damage to your roof, it’s important to schedule a professional inspection promptly. Even if you don’t notice damage, it’s good to err on the side of caution, as an experienced roofer will be able to identify signs that you may have missed.

Storm Damage FAQs

Elite Roofing and Solar is a trusted resource when it comes to what a homeowner should do after suspected hail or wind damage.

Hail storms can be scary for homeowners. Your roof is the first line of defense against the weather outside, and severe hail damage can compromise that defense overnight. If your home has just weathered a hail storm, it’s hard to know what to do first.

As a roofing company with years of experience helping families keep their roofs intact, Elite Roofing knows how to deal with hail. 

You can’t know for sure if your roof has sustained hail damage without a proper inspection. There are some signs of hail damage that you can spot yourself. These signs include loose shingles or cracked roof tiles, as well as damage to gutters, decks, mailboxes, or other parts of your home’s exterior. 

However, the best way to find out the extent of the damage is to schedule a roof inspection. A professional roofing company can tell you exactly what parts of your roof were damaged and how badly. Many roofers will provide this service free of charge. That means even if the hail was relatively mild, it doesn’t hurt to have your roof inspected anyway.

Hail damage coverage is not always included with insurance policies. However, in areas such as Denver and the Front Range, where hail storms are common, this coverage is included more often than not. Despite this, there is typically a specific window of time in which to file a claim for hail damage once the storm has passed. Thus, if your home is covered for hail damage, it’s a good idea to contact your insurance provider promptly so that you can be sure your claim will go through.

Just as hail can be small or large, hail damage to your roof can range from mild to severe. The extent of the damage is typically the main deciding factor when it comes to repairing your roof or replacing it. This isn’t the only factor to consider, however. If your roof was already in poor shape or near the end of its warranty, it’s often a good idea to replace it. Repairs to an already compromised roof won’t last long, and leaving the damage unaddressed can lead to dangerous situations. A professional roofer will be able to help you make the right call for your home.

Picking a roofer can be tough, and this is especially true when you need to fix hail damage on your roof. That’s because severe hail damage often makes homeowners desperate to have the damage fixed quickly, making them vulnerable to some of the more common roofing scams.

Typically, the best roofer will be an established roofing company that is locally based, experienced, and communicative. It’s a good idea to comb through the reviews of several companies and ask for references, if you have time. If you’re still not sure which company to go with, check out some of the tips in our guide to choosing between roofing companies.

A lot of companies come by and simply say, check with your insurance company, see if they’ll do it. Elite’s representative sat with me as I made my claim, and helped me advise the insurance company exactly what was going on. Class act, all the way.
