Spring and summer are prime times for thunderstorms in the Twin Cities metro area. Hail — those frozen rain pellets that can range in size from a pinhead to a golf ball — is often a frequent occurrence during these thunderstorms. If your home or commercial building has been exposed to hail during a storm, you need to have your roof inspected for damage as soon as possible.
Damage Might Not be Obvious
Whether your home just survived a sustained hail storm or your business is in the line of fire for frequent — but short-lived — thunderstorms with hail, you might not be able to see any damage that your roof incurs. Because leaking is something that you want to avoid when it comes to your roof, you need to have your roof inspected to be sure that there is no unseen damage that can lead to a leak.
Meet Your Insurance Company’s Criteria
It is possible that hail has damaged your roof enough so that filing a claim with your insurance company to cover the costs of its repair makes good financial sense. Because most insurance companies place a time limit when it comes to filing a claim, the sooner you establish a timeline for the damage, the more solid your claims of storm damage will be.
Many roofing companies — including All American Roofing and Restoration — offer free quotes to home and business owners. This helps you determine whether or not such a repair is something that you can cover out of pocket or if it is better for your bottom line for you to file a claim with your insurance company.
