With the recent hail storms that blew through the Rockwall Texas area, you may not realize that you have damage. In this video Paul Mason, owner of Mason Roofing, will describe what to look for if you think you may have hail damage.
We have had clients all over the Rockwall area that find out they have hail damage not because they had their insurance company adjuster come out, but from needing to sell their house. When the inspector comes out to look over the house before purchase, they find the hail damage.
As Paul mentions in the video, here are some of the things to look for to see if you might have damage:
Roof - will have pot marks in the shingles sometimes visible from the ground, you will see lots of asphalt come out of your downspouts after rain
Trees - Lots of leaves on the ground after a storm, limbs in the yard
Window Screens - After hail they will look like a cat scratched down the screen
Window Beading - This is the plastic sealer around the window, it will have cracks or holes
Gutters & Downspouts - You can see dents in the gutters and downspouts
Fence - Your fence may look like it has spots all over it
Air Conditioner - Hail can damage the outside of the unit where you might have to have the coils combed
If you think you might have damage, give us a call and we can come out and do a free inspection to see if you do have damage. We will get up on your roof, see if there is any damage and take pictures to show you. We will also inspect the outside of your house for any collateral damage done by the storm.
Once we determine if there is any damage, at that time you will call your insurance company to report the damage. They will have an adjuster come out and assess the damage. We will be glad to come out and meet the adjuster to help point out anything that could be missed. More often than not, they will find just about everything. Once the adjuster is done, they will give you a scope of work report that will let you know what they will pay to have done. At this point, we will take it from there.
We can handle just about everything that can be damaged from the storm for you. In this way, you don’t have to worry about searching and finding multiple contractors to handle each trade that has to be done to your house.
