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.

If My Home Gutter System Has Storm Damage, What Type Of Gutter Drainage System Should I Consider?

Homeowners that are evaluating gutter systems should veer towards house .  That’s because clogged gutters can cause damage to a home’s landscaping and foundation.  The downspouts that accompany the home gutter system should be oversize in order to filter as much water away from the home as possible.  LeafGuard® Gutters win favor with homeowners because they’re guaranteed never to clog, are made from aluminum 20% thicker than ordinary gutters, and have been awarded the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal of approval.

If A Deck Installation Is Part Of My Storm Damage Repair, What Should I Know?

When it comes to deck installation, homeowners have their choice between building a wood deck and composite deck installation.  While brown treated lumber can be a wise choice for the budget conscious homeowner, it is prone to drying and cracking.  The longevity and lack of maintenance required for a composite deck make it a more popular choice for homeowners and deck contractors.  Of the types of decks available, a name that is quickly gaining traction in the market is Millboard® decking.  Millboard® is better than other types of decks in its product class because it does not get overly hot in the summer.  In addition, it is not slippery in snowy and rainy conditions.  Deck contractors appreciate that it does not experience the rampant expansion and contraction issues other decking products have.  From an aesthetic perspective, Millboard® has a deep resemblance to wood.

Salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful with insurance due to hail damage. We had our previous LeafGuard® Gutters over 20 years. Replaced with new LeafGuard® Gutters due to the hail damage. Installation went great. Clean up was good. Highly recommend.

"Lindus Construction recently installed a new roof, replaced my soffits/fascia and installed replacement LeafGuard® Gutters that were damaged by hail this summer. (My original gutters were installed in 1999!) I could not be more pleased with their work, professionalism and meticulous attention to detail on all aspects of the project. Even the flashing on the chimney looks 110% better than what had been previously done and is now caulked as well. I highly recommend Lindus and would definitely hire them in the future should a need arise! You will definitely not be disappointed!

"This year we had storm due to hail and our insurance company allowed us to have Lindus Construction replace our gutters and downspouts. They sent a crew out in a timely manner and swap out the old product. Very pleased with the attention to details and professionalism of Lindus Construction.  As a professional realtor since 1986, I have seen a lot of gutter contractors come and go. I always recommend clients talk with Lindus Construction and see for themselves the great value of the LeafGuard® product."

"Our home recently sustained damage from a late summer hailstorm. Dealing with insurance and contractors can be stressful but Lindus made it pain free. They installed today during an unexpectedly heavy fall snowstorm. The guys worked hard and as usual they did an amazing job even in terrible conditions. I would recommend Lindus to anyone and I will be working with them again in the future."

"Just want to tell you our LeafGuard® gutters are still holding strong.  No problems for five years.  I've been sweeping, vacuuming to clean up seed pods and helicopters, but none in the gutters.  True mess in spring, leaves in fall, rain, snow, wind, or hail.  Runs clean without fail.  Nothing gets in, not even the squirrel's tail."
