Did you know that hail can cause as much damage to the roof of your home as it does your car? Hail damage is one common cause of roof damage across America. Any time your area experiences a nasty hail storm, it is important that you have a thorough roof inspection performed by one of the qualified roof contractors in Norman area.
Asphalt shingles are constructed of tiny granules that protect your home. As the hail beats down on the shingles, the granules can become loose and begin to wash away. After time, the shingles become damaged from the sun and begin to curl and expose the sub-roofing to moisture. Once the sub-roofing is exposed to moisture, the structural integrity of the roof can quickly become compromised. The water can begin to seep into your house, damage the joists, attic and eventually the interior ceiling of your home.
If you carry homeowner’s insurance, you are in luck. Many homeowner’s insurance policies do cover the cost of repairs when it comes to hail damage. The only thing you will be responsible for paying for is the deductible you have set on your policy. Once you have the roof inspected by Roof Contractors in Norman, contact your insurance provider and discuss what your next step should be. Some insurance companies will require one of their own adjusters to come out and inpsect the roof, while others will take the information from the roofing contractor you hired for the inspection and pay the claim.
The damage caused by most hail storms is nothing that must be addressed that very day; however, you must be aware of the fact that some insurance companies do have a limitation for how long a claim can be filed after the damage has occurred. Because of this, it is in your best interest to have the work completed as soon as possible. You do not want the time to pass and have to foot the bill out of your own pocket simply because you put off getting the work done.
Hail damage is something that Roof Contractors handle each year. If you suspect that your roof has been damaged, do not hesitate to contact a roofing contractor to have it inspected immediately.
