Storm Damage – Insurance Claims
Does your property need repair work because of one of Georgia’s severe thunderstorms? Does your roof need replacing due to a massive hail storm, or fire damage? Your homeowner’s insurance may cover the cost. Before we begin on any project after a severe storm has been in the area, we always check to see if it’s covered by your insurance.
Did you know that hail hits the roof of your property with the same force as a hammer hitting the roof. That force alone can cause damage. Hail may cause pitting, granular loss, granular cracking, and/or broken shingles. If that damage is left unrepaired it can lead to roof failure, property damage exterior and interior, water intrusion, and/or mold in your walls, and the need for a window replacement. High winds during a severe thunderstorm can also cause major damage to your roof. If your roof has suffered storm damage let us assist you with making your claim. Many insurance policies have strict time limits on submitting claims after a storm, so it’s in your best interest to let the experts at J Key Roofing help you act fast and start the repair process.
