Maximize Your Insurance Claim For Roof Storm Damage

August 10, 2010

Dealing With Your Insurance Company After Storm Damage

Insurance companies know that property owners who experience hail storm damage are anxious to file their insurance claim.  They will often try to rush your claim through the system in the hopes that you will accept their findings at face value.  This costs property owners like you millions of dollars each year in underpaid or denied claims for legitimate hail damages.

Filing Your Insurance Claim

If you have not yet filed a claim, do so immediately.  There is a limited time in which to file your storm damage claim. When a claim is filed, make sure a MN hail damage and Insurance Claim Negotiation Expert is present to protect your interests when the insurance adjuster inspects your property.

Severe Storms Drop Tornadoes and Hail In Cold Spring, Minnesota

Minneapolis, Mn in the news again.  Strong storms delivered another hit to parts of Minnesota including Cold Spring, Minnesota area on Saturday.

Strong thunderstorms ripped through central Minnesota Saturday afternoon.  It started in Stearns County where 4.25″ sized hail dropped near Cold Spring, MN, that has resulted in widespread damage.  Golf ball sized hail was reported.

The insidious nature of hail damage is that it may pose no immediate threat to the structural integrity of the roof.  However, many insurance companies have a “statute of limitations” of how long a hail claim is viable.  If you have experienced a loss such as hail damage, it is prudent to take care of the problem in a timely manner before it leads to other associated problems.

If your roof has any damage what-so-ever you have a VALID insurance claim and should file with your insurance company.  Insurance companies can not cancel your policy for a disaster related claim.

If you are wondering if your property has been damaged by the recent Minnesota hailstorm, contact a reliable roofing contractor that can help you identify and repair damage to hail damaged roofs.

Roof Replacement After Recent Minnesota Tornado

Replacing Your Roof From Hail and Storm Damage

Make Sure You Use Experienced Roofers When Replacing Your Roof From Hail Damage

We have all heard some horror stories about roofers who take advantage of homeowners who have had hail damage and are not familiar with hail damage claims.

One example of this is where a roofer ordered their shingles, had them delivered, and completed the work:  but then the roofer skipped town without paying for the shingles after collecting the money from the homeowner.   Guess who had to pay for the shingles?  You got it…the homeowner!

Remember to be sure to check references before agreeing to anything with a contractor.  There are plenty of reputable companies who will take care of your needs, and it pays to do some homework.

Eliminate the guesswork by hiring a local, licensed, bonded, and insured crew, with a proven track record of quality work.

If you think you have hail damage on your roof after the recent tornado in Minnesota, and you would like a professional team to assist you in the claim process, call a professional roofing contractor today.  We will work with you through the entire process.


Home Improvements That Pay Their Way

Reflective Metal Roofing

Reflective Metal Roofing

  • Reflective metal roofing saves on energy costs because it is able to reflect solar energy back into the atmosphere.  This reduces the amount of energy absorbed into your home.
  • Qualified roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings.  This can reduce peak cooling demands by 10-15%.

The roofs that qualify are the metal roofs that have reflective qualities or the asphalt roofs that have “cooling granules.”  These roofs are specially designed to reduce the heat gain in the house thereby reducing the cooling costs.

United Roofing & Remodeling offers a wide variety of services designed to suit all our clients’ roofing needs.  For more information on any of roofing, siding, window, or gutter services, call us at 612-617-1717
