Hail Damage is Cause for a Roof Insurance Claim

Many homeowners don’t realize they can get a roof replacement for their home due to roof hail damage, damage which they’re likely not aware even exists.

Our Denver region is known for hail storms. The last big one was in July. Many roofs got damaged yet many homeowners have not filed a claim with their homeowners insurance. Time is running out for them! Typical insurance policies allow a time frame within 1 year to file a claim.

So should you call your insurance company about your hail damage before you call a roofing company?

Usually it’s not a good idea. Why? Because many insurance companies will consider it a claim against your policy, even if you don’t get a penny! Every time your insurance company goes out to your home, they count that as a “claim.”

So its best to have a roofing professional look at your roof first to make sure there is enough hail damage before you call your insurance company. I know what to look for on your roof and if it’s eligible, I’ll be happy to meet your insurance adjuster and make sure the specifications of your claim are correct.

Here’s an example of roof hail damage to qualify for roof replacement insurance claim:

The above is an extremely bad case. But it takes as little hail damage as shown below to qualify.

It doesn't take much hail damage for a roof replacement.

The way an insurance claim is filed can very often affect the way it’s settled. So please call me (Mike) at 1-303-681-9199 first before you call your insurance company.

I’ll make sure you get started right with your roof hail damage insurance claim.
