Hailstorms and Calgary roofs: the two go hand-in-hand. In some cases, hailstorms can be so bad that they damage your roof, leaving you to fix the mess. You might feel frustrated and angry at what you are going to do next, but don’t stress: we have the five steps that make it easy.
Four Easy Steps To Get Roof Repairs After A Hailstorm
- Check Your Roof For Damages – The first thing you should do (once it’s safe) is to check the status of your roof, as you will have to see the damage firsthand. Next, you will have to collect evidence, which means taking photos of the hail, the damages (such as missing shingles or tiles), and any internal damage (such as leaks). The more details you have of the hailstorm and the mayhem surrounding it, the better your claim can be with your insurance company.
- Double-Check Your Home Policy – IT is vital that you double-check your policy to make sure that you are entitled to coverage when it comes to hail damage. There is no point contacting the roofing contractor and the insurance company if you know that you can’t get coverage. If you are not entitled to coverage, then you’ll have to pay the Calgary roofing company for the repairs without the help of the insurance.
- Contact Your Insurance Company – Reach out to your insurance company and notify them about the damage that has happened in regards to the hailstorm. Provide them with all the information, details and estimates that you’ve collected. They will judge it and then send over an assessor of their own to inspect your roof. The assessor will see what the cost of your repairs adds up too, and what the company will cover you for the repairs.
- Contacting A Roofing Contractor To Make Roof Repairs – Once you have assessed the hailstorm damage, it is now time to contact a roofing contractor in Calgary. In some cases, the insurance company will provide you with a roofing contractor to do the job for you. But if you don’t want to go that way, then hire a Calgary roofing company that you trust. Based on the estimate and the repairs according to the assessor’s report, the contractor will start the project.
