Storm Damage Repair

Hail Damage Roof Repair Wind Damage Roof Repair


Storms cause more than $1.5 billion in damage to residential roofs in the United States annually. Severe hail and wind damage is easy to detect, but the most common damage is caused by moderate hail and wind storms. Asphalt shingle roofs that sustain moderate damage are difficult to detect damage on and often perform well in the months and sometimes years following a storm. The fact is the loss of the protective granules combined with the rupturing of the reinforcing membrane will cause the shingle to prematurely fail and the serviceable life to be affected as well.

It is important to have your roof inspected by a licensed professional roofing contractor that has experience in detecting damage. Most insurance companies will cover the repair or full replacement of your damaged roof and will classify these damages as “no-fault claims”. Regal Roofing personnel have decades of roofing experience and have worked with property owners installing millions of square feet of high quality roofing systems. We have the expertise to detect damage and to work with you and your insurance company to make sure you receive the maximum benefits available.



The Steps to a New Roof from Your Insurance

  1. Let’s start at the beginning. First, we will send a roof inspector to your house to inspect for damage. This isn’t some gimmicky drone inspection! Drone technology is definitely improving, but it just can’t do everything that a professional inspector can (yet). We have Haag Engineering Residential Certified Inspectors ready to get a ladder and safety equipment, step onto your roof, and provide you with a thorough roof inspection. Anything of concern will be photographed and documented so that we can show you all of the issues with your roof system, storm-related or not, and suggest the best course of action.

  2. Second, we will discuss the best next steps for your roof. Should you file a claim? Is the damage caused by a storm? Should the roof be repaired, or does it need to be replaced?Is there even any damage?We hire roof inspectors, not salespeople, to go over the best options for you and your home. If filing a claim is the best option, then we file it with you. After all, we do this every day, and you don’t! We are used to the insurance company’s questions!

  3. At this point, the insurance company will send out an adjuster to review the damage. Well, usually. Some adjusters know us well enough that we can simply send the same photographs that we showed you. But, most of the time, they need to visit your home. We will meet the adjuster there to ensure that all of our observations are addressed. In almost every case, the claims that we help our customers file result in a full roof replacement.

  4. Regal works with your insurance carrier. That means that if they won’t pay for something that your roof needs, we do the arguing, not you.

  5. Regal never charges a penny over the full replacement cost that your insurance company agrees to in their final estimate, so you will know your MAXIMUM out of pocket expense before we ever do the work.

  6. Regal accepts no money until the work is completed. Not only do we not ask for it, we won’t even take it!
