How Can I Determine If I Need To File A Storm Damage Insurance Claim?
Roofing companies can use various techniques to determine if hail damage roof repair is needed. One technique is climbing on the roof and performing a visual inspection. The drawback is that it can be easy for a roofer to scuff the shingle granules when walking on them on hot days. In addition, it can be dangerous to climb on roofs that are high or have a steep pitch. An alternative to walking on a roof is using a drone that can capture close-up images of the roof to determine if a storm damage roof repair is needed. Drones can also capture roofing dimensions so that roofing companies know how many shingles to order.
