Most people are aware of the damage hail can cause by damaging and denting cars. This awareness doesn't always translate into the impact a hail storm can have on your home's roof. While you can visually see the damage to your car after a hail storm, you can't always see the damage to a roof. The damage you can't see can put the longevity of your roof at risk.
Signs of Hail Damage to an Asphalt Roof:
Have your roof inspected / evaluated by a local reputable roofing contractor to determine if there’s damage & the extent of damage. If my Roof is damaged, how fast should I replace it? The threat is in the longevity of the roof, hail can dramatically decrease a roof's life expectancy. Will Homeowner's Insurance Cover a New Roof? For most homeowners the answer is "yes". If you are unsure if your homeowner's policy covers hail damage to your roof, contact your insurance company. Don't wait too long to call your insurance company. Some companies have time limits for reporting the damage.
When storms hit North Texas, it’s not uncommon to see an influx of out-of-town roofers — “storm chasers” — who often leave town not long after the storms do. How can you determine if you’re hiring a legitimate roofer who’ll be around after the storm season?
Here are some important questions the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association recommends asking:
My husband PJ and I used Elite Roofing a couple of years back and have recommended them MANY times!! This company is an amazing one to work with!! Jimmy, the owner, was fabulous in working with our insurance company to assure that they would cover our new roof. I did absolutely NOTHING besides pick out my new roof and set the dates with Jimmy. Elite Roofing’s crews were efficient, kind, trustworthy and neat. All of those attributes were important to us as we looked for a roofer. Our home was left each night that they worked in great condition and the clean up at the end was perfect! Not only was Jimmy present during the job, but he also is easy to get a hold of now if we have questions.This company is not a “ fly by night” operation, and we love that we know they are around our community should we ever need them! Roofing is never fun and nothing we all look forward to having to do, but Elite Roofing made it a great experience and we continue to recommend them anywhere we can!!
