What Should I Know About Hiring A Storm Damage Repair Company?

When hiring a storm damage restoration company, homeowners may wrongfully assume that it is customary to sign the insurance check over to the contractor in order to get the project started.  However, doing so leaves the homeowner minimal recourse if the storm damage company does not complete the project correctly or in its entirety.  This makes it even more important to read online reviews about storm damage restoration contractors and ask their homeowner references thorough questionsContractors should also be licensed and insured.  While viewing a copy of a contractor’s insurance policy it is a good idea, an even better idea is calling their insurance company to verify that they are still approved for the amounts their policy is stating.

What Should I Look For In A Roof Replacement Estimate?

Before partnering with a roofer, it’s wise to know what type of roof installation they plan to complete.  That’s because a roof estimate can vary greatly depending on the roofing material that is being used.  After a storm damage insurance claim, many homeowners opt for the installation of impact-resistant shingles.  A roof installation with this type of shingles makes it likely that hail will not cause damage in the future.  This type of roof replacement can be eligible for insurance discounts.  Examples of shingles with Class 4 impact resistance include GAF Glenwood® and Timberline® ArmorShield II.

Storm Damage Repair Reviews:

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.

"The installation was beyond belief. The installer was a pro and helped solve an issue where I had two gutters coming together in a valley at different heights. We brainstormed and it was a perfect solution. Could not be any happier."

Lindus replaced our LeafGuard® Gutters that were 21 years old and had storm damage. The gutters have performed well for 21 years, and I expect the new ones will be even better as they are larger, and less likely to clog at the valleys. Installation was smooth and there was sufficient follow-ups when a couple of issues needed to be addressed."

"My husband and I got LeafGuard® Gutters for our home.  It was done in a timely manner with knowledgeable installers, so much so that we are slated to have our roof and two storm doors done."
