Get Peace of Mind With Our Hail Damage Pros
It’s that time of year again… Storm season is upon us and unfortunately that increases the likelihood of roof damage caused by severe weather. The most common reason we see an uptick in residential roofing and commercial roofing repairs or replacements during the stormy seasons is due to hail damage. Unfortunately hail damage is not always evaluated properly or honestly and is used by some roofing companies to increase profits at the expense of homeowners.
In this video we will hear from owner and president of Weather Tech Renovations Brian Donigan as he shares insights and provides recommendations to residential homeowners as well as commercial business owners that may be struggling with roof damage caused by hail. Brian will also shed light on the predatory practices and the tactics that are utilized by less than reputable or fly by night roofing companies during hail season.
Without a Doubt the Leading Contributor to Spring and Summer Roof Damage Done to Homes and Businesses is Hail Related
Hail season is typically one of the busiest times of the year for the roofing industry, but it can also be a very stressful time for homeowners and business owners alike. Damage to property can be difficult to deal with both emotionally and financially, and dealing with your insurance company and finding the right reputable roofing company can oftentimes prove to be just as troublesome.
The fact of the matter is, when it does hail in your area you can expect to find people storming through your neighborhoods or community and most of the time these salesmen don’t have the experience or knowledge when it comes to roof repairs or roof replacements caused by hail damage.
The key thing we can tell consumers is don’t get your roof inspected or take advice from someone knocking on your door after a hailstorm, generally these salesmen aren’t from around here and have been sent there by an out of state or less reputable roofing company to prey on vulnerable homeowners after a hailstorm. Since these roving groups of storm chasers are not local and they’re just trying to find an outlet to make money, they don’t take into consideration things like the size of the hail, speed of the hail, and the density of the hail, this is all key information that factors into a properly conducted roofing inspection.
We recommend that you call and speak with your insurance agent first, explaining the situation and your concerns about hail damage before you make any decisions.
Allow your insurance agent to provide you with the resources you need, so that you can make an informed decision pertaining to your roof. An insurance agent will be able to guide you in the right direction and should be able to provide options or recommendations for locally licensed and reputable roofing companies to inspect your hail damage.

Don’t Panic Make an Informed Decision… You May Not Have Hail Damage
A lot of time homeowners don’t need to worry about hail damage, if your home’s roof is relatively new or if the hailstorm was light or home waws on the edge of a hailstorm you most likely won’t have hail damage that warrants a repair or replacement.
We cannot stress enough how important it is to not make any hasty decisions regarding your roof. The issue is, if you become inspired by one of these door-to-door roofing salesmen and decide to make a claim with your insurance company, and you don’t have significant hail damage you could be denied your claim.
This dishonest money-making practice almost always results in denied claims or your insurance company only covering a small portion of the damage and that rarely meet or exceed deductibles, resulting in zero payout; and if you do end up getting hail damage in the same coverage period your insurance company will rollover the cost from the previous claim, awarding less damages to the home owner, resulting in more out of pocket cost.
Don’t take the risk with the roof over your head, call your insurance agent first, get recommendations and have your roof inspected for hail damage by a locally licensed and reputable roofing company.
Please take our advice, say no to door Knockers and solicitors on weekends, don’t trust roofing companies calling from 1-800 numbers and keep an eye out for vehicles with out of state plates offering roof inspections in your area after a hailstorm, this is predatory behavior in the roofing industry.
