But I Just Have A Leak…
Maybe your roof hasn’t been through any major storms, for example, a hail storm or high winds, but you are noticing dark spots on your ceiling or water dripping into your home during or after rainfall. Not all leaks have directly resulted from storm damage. Leaks can be caused by worn or improperly installed flashing around skylights, chimneys, vents, or valleys. Some vents work inadvertently as intake values for wind driven moisture. Ice damming is a fairly common cause of leaks in the winter time, and if you live locally you know we have had a couple occasions where ice could have been on your roof for multiple days this winter. If you are experiencing any of these issues give us a call today! Our trained professional Project Managers can assess the source of the leak and address the cause, it could be as simple as needing a minor roof repair.
Do I Need a Roof Inspection After A Hail Storm?
The good news is that with PGRS, it doesn’t cost you anything to find out and the answer is yes, you definitely should have your roof inspected by a professional after a large hail storm. We are ready and standing by to inspect your roof and give you a free, honest evaluation of the condition of your roof. We will never try to sell you a roof replacement that you do not need. If your roof system is in good condition, we will be happy to share the good news with you!
What About Hail Damage?
It goes without saying that not every roof sustains significant damage from a single hail storm or high wind incident. At times, however, the hail is large and hard enough to damage even a brand new roof. No roof system is completely hail proof.
Most of the time hail damage to asphalt shingles is not visible from a ground inspection. It requires a trained professional to climb on the roof and perform a thorough inspection. You can enter your contact information and the problem(s) you are experiencing here (ß going to link here to take them to our appointment booking page) or call our office today to schedule an appointment.
It is helpful to keep in mind that while the evidence of hail damage is immediately visible to our trained inspectors, the results of hail damage are not always immediate. Leaks do not typically occur the day of the storm, leaks resulting from punctured and or fractured shingles may go undetected but will still cause damage moving forward.
Should I Call My Insurance Company for an Inspection?
Before filing an unwarranted insurance claim that could be denied, Professional Grade Roofing Solutions will complete an assessment of yo
ur roof for free. Upon request, we can provide you photos of your roof’s current condition and explain to you what damages there are to your roof. We don’t just tell you that your roof is damaged and provide you with estimates, we will show you the actual damage the best we can through pictures thanks to today’s technology.
Our certified inspectors can accurately assess wind and hail damage to your roof as well as simple leaks and missing shingles. Accurate, real-time information is what is needed to make an educated decision regarding whether or not to file an insurance claim. Of all the roofing companies in Lower Metro Atlanta and surrounding areas, we take pride in the fact that we are familiar with the standards of insurance carriers and their intricate policies. This is most definitely an advantage to you. We will provide you important data that can assist you in making the best decision for your home. Many insurance companies will suggest to their insured to have the roof inspected by multiple contractors prior to filing a claim to avoid sending their adjusters to an undamaged home.
What If I Have Already Filed An Insurance Claim?
If you have already filed a claim with your insurance company, time is of the essence to find trustworthy roofing companies to perform an initial inspection and report to you their findings prior to the adjuster meeting. This will help you know what outcome you should expect from the adjuster meeting. While most insurance adjusters are thorough and fair in their assessments, it is almost always beneficial to have your licensed roofing contractor present to perform the roof and property inspections together with your adjuster. Our Project Managers with PGRS will try their very hardest to find time in their schedule to meet with you and your adjuster if they are given a day and time frame. This will allow you to be represented by an experienced professional in the industry who is there to serve as an advocate for your interest in making sure damages are not overlooked in the determination of the claim. It is our pleasure to assist you throughout the Insurance Claims Process, but getting the process started on the right foot will make the experience flow more smoothly and efficiently which is all we want for you as a homeowner.
