Storm Damage and the Insurance Claim Process

Are you concerned about storm damage? Marcor Construction, a leading roofing company in Long Island, is here to help. Our team of experts specializes in providing high-quality roofing services, ensuring the integrity, functionality, and longevity of your roof. 

From shingle roofs to tile roofs, we understand the unique challenges posed by different roofing materials. In this page, we'll explain the impact of storm damage, signs to look for, the importance of a professional inspection, and why choosing the right contractor is crucial.

When I look at my roof, I don't see any hail damage. How do I know if I have damage?


Storm Damage to Shingle Roofs

Sealing Strip Compromise:

During severe storms, wind can lift and break the sealing strip between shingles. Although the shingles may appear undamaged, compromised sealing strips can lead to future leaks and significant issues. At Marcor Construction, we emphasize the critical role of sealing strips in maintaining a watertight roof. Prompt examination by our experts can prevent potential leaks and ensure your roof's long-term durability.


Storm Damage to Tile Roofs

The Threat of Chattering Tiles

Tile roofs have their own set of vulnerabilities during storms. Strong winds can cause tiles to "chatter" or repeatedly shift, creating openings around the nails securing them to the underlayment. Over time, this can lead to water seepage and damage throughout the roof. Even if the visible damage seems minimal immediately after the storm, the long-term effects can be significant. Marcor Construction's trained professionals understand the nuances of tile roofs and can accurately assess any storm-related damage.


Detecting Hail Damage

The Hidden Menace of Hail

Hail damage may not be immediately noticeable to the untrained eye. While you may not see visible holes or indentations, hail can drastically shorten the lifespan of your roof. If you've observed damaged siding, vehicles, or neighbors undergoing repairs, it's highly likely that your roof requires attention too. Our skilled team at Marcor Construction specializes in identifying hail damage, ensuring your roof receives the necessary repairs to prevent further deterioration.

Professional Inspection for Comprehensive Evaluation

The Importance of Expert Inspection

Many homeowners struggle to gauge the extent of storm damage, particularly when it comes to insurance claims. Marcor Construction stands apart with our trained wind/hail damage inspectors. Our professionals possess the knowledge and expertise to conduct thorough inspections, ensuring all storm-related damages are accurately identified. It's vital to have a knowledgeable representative during the inspection to avoid potential issues with the insurance company and maximize your claim's potential.

Siding and Exterior Damage Examining Your Siding:

Inspecting your siding for storm damage is crucial in protecting your home's exterior. Most people can inspect their own siding by checking your exterior walls closely, preferably when the sun is a little lower in the sky (morning or evening). This will make it easier to see the denting. Old aluminum siding will show the damage more than wood or vinyl unless the vinyl actually has holes in it.

Understanding the Claims Process

How and when do I make a claim? Does my insurance company know if I had large hail/wind in my neighborhood?

When it comes to making an insurance claim for storm damage, timing and knowledge are key. Insurance companies often subscribe to tracking and reporting services that monitor hail and wind activity in specific areas. If your neighborhood experienced damaging hail, your insurance company likely knows about it. To ensure a smooth claims process, contact Marcor Construction when hail is present in your area, allowing us to be present during the adjuster's inspection.

Maximizing Your Claim and Selecting a Contractor Working with a Reputable Contractor:

Collaborating with a knowledgeable contractor is vital in optimizing your insurance claim. Marcor Construction has extensive experience in storm damage repairs and understands the intricacies of insurance negotiations. Beware of contractors offering low prices or engaging in unethical practices. Our team is committed to transparency and professionalism, ensuring that you receive fair compensation and superior-quality materials for your repairs.
