Storm Roof Damage
We can help with all your roofing decisions.
Doesn’t matter if it’s heavy winds, thunderstorm, hailstorm, or tornadoes, any kind of natural disaster can cause damage to your home’s roof. High winds are powerful enough to wreak havoc if you have an unsecured roof causing anything from a minor roof leak or potentially catastrophic damages. If your property’s roof sustains any type of damage, call for an immediate inspection and estimate. We have experience working with all insurance carriers. Most storm damage done to a roof is typically covered by homeowner’s insurance.
Roof Damage Covered By Insurance
When it comes to placing an insurance claim for those repairs to be covered by insurance, that’s another daunting process in itself. Most homeowners do not know how to file a claim, what documentation they need, or even what is actually covered in their homeowner’s insurance policy. The best way to find out what your insurance policy covers is to consult a professional insurance provider.
Your insurance policy typically covers damages from extreme weather conditions or “Natural disasters” like tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe hailstorms. Similarly, the homeowner insurance policy also covers roof damages from moderate weather incidents/events such as wind and rain-related damages.

Hail bruises shingles and causes indentation that is often hard to spot. However, this indentation is powerful enough to crack your shingles and allow water to infiltrate your ceiling slowly over time.
It’s best to hire the services of a professional roofing expert to determine the degree of damage to your roof. It is important to note that if your roof experiences hail damage, you can file for insurance coverage for the repair.
We have seen all types of hail damage and will work with your insurance person to make sure they don't miss it. If the hailstorm was severe and left your roof completely damaged, you can call a roofing contractor who specializes in “hailstorm roof repair” to evaluate and fix the damages.
Wind Roof Damage
High winds hit your roof surface at different speeds. It is particularly dangerous for the edges, corners, and ridgelines of your roof as they are prone to the damages from high-speed winds. This may leave your roof exposed from damaged areas, which leads to roof leaks.
Another significant danger of high-speed winds or other windstorms to the rooftop is “lifting.” Shingles look intact and fixed when you see them from the ground. But when high-winds come up over your roof, they create an intense suction effect. This lifts shingles slightly upwards. This happens because winds loosen the nails that hold down shingles.
It does not stop there. When there is a gap between shingles, the sealant between layers breaks and leads to roof leaks. High winds can also blow debris and may lead to fallen limbs and trees around the property to fall on your rooftop. Remember that falling limbs and trees can destroy or puncture your roof or shingles. Make sure that you cut down overhanging trees and limbs on your rooftop before a windstorm.
