The recent hail storm that rolled through McAllen, Texas left thousands of home owners and building owners with leaks. Some people got hit worse than others. How do you know if your roof has damage or not?
The first thing you can do is call us at (956) 622-5948 and we can come out to your house or building and check your roof out for you. We do this for free. We actually recommend this because there’s a certain way you should walk on roofs depending on what type of roofing material. We would not want you to damage your roof by trying to check for hail damage.
So, how will a leaky roof cost you thousands of dollars?
Well depending on the size of the hail that hit in your area, you may get immediate leaks, or you may not get any for quite some time. The problem is, insurance companies will only cover damage for a certain amount of time. Once that time frame has passed, you will no longer be covered.
This means that if you had hail damage to your home or building, but leaks don’t start for a year or two, your insurance company may not cover the damage.
We see a lot of homeowners and building owners just wait and see if there are any leaks after the storm. If there are no leaks, then they assume they are fine and there was no damage. In reality, there may be severe damage, but it will take time before it shows up.
By that time, it may be too late, and you are going to be stuck repairing or replacing your roof out of your own pocket, instead of going through your insurance company. So what are you supposed to do?
Again, we recommend that you give us a call and one of our friendly roof experts will come out there and take a look at your roof. If there is hail damage, we will help you through the process of getting it repaired through your insurance company.
If you’d like to setup an appointment, just give our office a call at (956) 622-5948.
Don’t get stuck with a roof that is leaking from hail damage later on down the road when your insurance company may not cover it!
