What exactly is the role of claims handling?

Put simply, as the name suggests, we can handle your claim. By working with us, you can present your insurance provider with a detailed and thorough claim. An insurance company usually has set requirements needed in order to approve funds for roof repairs following a weather event like a hail storm. We submit all of the information needed for a successful hail damage claim, on your behalf. The process begins with a comprehensive roof damage assessment conducted by one of our experts, and concludes with a skilled repair technician working on your roof, guaranteeing a seamless and successful repair experience.

Can a hail damaged roof be repaired?

If your roof is currently affected by hail damage following a hail storm, there is likely one question on your mind; “can roof repairs really fix this?”. Severe weather events can leave your home and roof in a tragic condition, made worse by additional storm damage or tree damage.

Roof repairs can be undertaken to get your roof back into shape. The type of repair will depend on the severity of the hail damage. Hail damage claims and repairs will differ from denting metal roofs to cracking roof tiles or damaging skylights or solar systems. In the case of a severe storm with high winds, there could also be more severe damage to gutters and other roof parts that could need replacement rather than repairs.

In some cases, if the structural integrity of the roof or home is impacted, it may be most cost-effective in both labour time and roofing material to opt for a brand new roof, especially if your insurance coverage involves high insurance premiums. This is why it’s important to have a professional take a look at your hail damage and conduct a damage report; this will help to understand what the most cost-effective next step is for both you and your insurance company.

As we are a one-stop-shop for all things roof hail damage, we can both book the assessment to assess hail damage, organise the hail damage claims requirements with your insurance company and, organise and conduct the repairs. All you have to do is get in touch with our friendly team and let go of the stress of roof hail damage, we’ve got you.
