Q: We just had a hail storm in my area. I don’t see any damage. Is there possibly damage I can’t see?
A: Many homeowners may not realize the extent of the property loss they have suffered after a storm. An untrained eye may not see the damage and left unchecked it can be costly. Storm damage actually will reduce the life of the materials and often void manufacturers warranties. Our Ask a Pro Specialists have extensive training to detect storm damage indicators and they are aided by weather maps that identify specific neighborhoods damaged by storms.

Q: I’ve never had to deal with storm damage repairs, what do I need to know to hire the right contractor?
A: To assist in your decision, we suggest asking six basic questions in the event of storm damage:
Does the contractor have experience handling insurance claim work after hail and wind storms? How many claims annually?
Does the contractor have referrals or testimonials?
Is the contractor reputable? Look to see if they are a member of roofing industry associations and listed with BBB.
How does the contractor handle warranty work?
Is the contractor accessible 24 hours a day and have access to quality materials to prevent delay? We are a Platinum Preferred Provider of Owens Corning – the biggest name in roofing materials – and have built a reputation to have the materials and labor available after a storm.
Is the contractor licensed and insured? (Ask to see proof.)
