Hail Damage

Hail damage can wreak havoc on your roof, so after a big hail storm, you may want to know what you should do next to take care of the damage and prevent further problems. At Reynolds Roofing, here’s what we recommend you should do to effectively deal with hail damage after a storm:

  • Get in touch with your insurance company. This is the first thing you should do after you notice significant hail damage. Let them know what happened, when it happened, and determine what your policy covers.
  • Find out about the claims process. In some cases, you only have so long to make a claim to cover damage to your home. Determine if you want to file a claim with your insurance company and how long you have not only to complete the claim, but to finish the repair work.
  • Turn the hassle into an opportunity. While your insurance company probably won’t pay for you to upgrade your roof after hail damage, the claim can still give you the opportunity to improve your home. For example, if you have to replace your entire roof, you may want to pick hues and materials that align with market trends.
  • Choose a reliable contractor. The best way to effectively deal with hail damage is to choose a reliable contractor approved by your insurance company. When you choose our team, we guarantee we will complete the work quickly and provide exceptional customer service along the way.
