hail storm damage

1. What should I do?

If water is leaking into your home, the first thing you need to do is protect your interior and wait until the storm subsides. Once the weather is calm, perform a simple visual inspection outside and inside your home. Take pictures for documentation, call a trusted roofer for an inspection, and contact your insurance company to begin the filing process. Many insurance companies limit the time to file a claim, so don’t delay.

2. I need a contractor to repair my roof. Who should I hire?

We strongly recommend hiring an experienced local hail damage repair expert like us to work on your roof. It’s important to choose an established, highly experienced company for this project because there are many unscrupulous contractors who take advantage of homeowners after a storm. Most of these companies have no documentation or licenses, so make sure to verify that any contractor you’re considering hiring has these credentials.

3. How does the storm damage repair process work?

When you work with Colonial Remodeling, we make sure that your storm damage restoration goes as smoothly as possible. We will assist you during the insurance claims process by providing detailed estimates and pictures of the damage. If necessary, we will meet with the adjuster to point out the full extent of the damage. We can help you earn the compensation you deserve.
