Patience After the Storm

If your home is in need of storm damage repair, it’s wise to start consulting with reputable contractors right after speaking with your insurance company.  Above all else, exercise patience.  When it comes to storm damage, and all things home improvement, having patience is the key to success.  While a door knocking storm contractor will often promise to complete work faster than a local contractor, work is often done in a shoddy manner, if it is completed at all.

Reputable Contractors Care for Lasting Results

Storm chasing contractors can also fail to correctly install bath fans through the roof.  This can lead to moldy attic insulation, dry rot and shingles that fail prematurely.  An Storm chasing contractors can also fail to correctly install bath fans through the roof.  This can lead to moldy attic insulation, dry rot and shingles that fail prematurely.  An advantage to working with local, reputable residential roofing contractors is that they have the ability to offer warranties that offer peace of mind, such as GAF’s Golden Pledge® warranty.  This non-prorated warranty, offered by GAF Master Elite™ contractors, is good for 50 years and covers both labor and materials. Even more assuring is that the warranty can be transferred to the next owner of your home.

Renovate During Repairs with Trustworthy Contractors

Another area that local, reputable contractors outshine storm chasing contractors is their ability to recommend additional home improvements that can add to your overall satisfaction of your home.  One such improvement is the addition of skylights and sun tunnels that can introduce natural light to areas of your home that would not otherwise receive it. Popular options include bathrooms, basements, hallways, and closets.

When it comes to hail damage siding insurance claims, the contractor you opt to have perform the work is nearly as important as the material you pick. If opting for steel siding, opt for a reputable professional with a working knowledge of this siding material, as it can be trickier to install than vinyl.  LP® SmartSide installation also requires precise craftsmanship in order to maintain the manufacturer warranty and prevent water infiltration.

"I had very positive experience with Lindus Construction. They showed up a day earlier than scheduled to replace my LeafGuard® Gutters which were damaged during last summer's hail storm.  The clean-up and removal of the old gutters was exceptional.   I thank Lindus for the extra effort and the professionalism they exhibited to complete the project."
