Are you aware that you can file your insurance claim with Lake Orion Roofing? In fact, your homeowner’s insurance could cover up to 100% of the replacement costs when you file through us. Here’s what you need to know to make sure your roof and home are protected.
You should always be aware of high wind speeds and potential storms that could pass through your area. If you are experiencing wind speeds of 60 miles per hour or greater, it would be in your best interest to have a forensic roof analysis performed. This will uncover any hidden wind damage that you may have experienced. A roofing expert will know the signs to look for to determine if you have damage, such as loose and lifted shingles. The wind in Lake Orion typically comes from the west as it increases in speed over our lakes, so a home with a high roof pitch that faces west is susceptible to damage. Hailstorm damage is a bit more obvious. You will see dents and damaged shingles. However, to the inexperienced eye, it may not be as noticeable. It’s just as important to repair shingles with hail damage as it is to repair shingles with wind damage.
Effects of Roof Damage
Any damage to your roof, especially if not taken care of immediately, could lead to serious problems that only get progressively worse over time. You should never delay in getting your roof repaired as it can lead to leaks or ice dams. Over time, you can see mold growth and rotting wood in your attic and home. Also, keep in mind that most homeowners’ insurance requires that you file a claim within one year of determining that your roof has been damaged. Take into consideration the time it takes to file your claim as well.
When receiving roofing services, we at Lake Orion Roofing recommend that you do not not file your claim with your insurance company. Because hail and wind damage is not always easily visible, insurance companies are likely to miss the evidence and be less willing to discuss it with you. They may even fight with you over it. When you file your claim through us, we will conduct a detailed inspection with our HAAG Certified Inspectors who specialize in finding hidden damage. Once the damage is assessed, we can work with adjusters by providing the evidence that was found. Our reliable staff will handle all your paperwork for you and usually even receive a response within 24 hours of filing it. You could even receive up to 100% coverage on the repairs. You already have to deal with repairing or replacing your roof, so our goal is to make the process as easy and painless for you as possible!
Lake Orion Roofing can help you get the repair you need before, during, and after the harsh Michigan Winter. We will inspect your roof for wind or hail damage. If damage is found, we do all the work filing your insurance claim so that you don’t have to. If you’d like to receive a forensic roof analysis, give us a call at 248-393-0055.
