Storm Damage Repair
Has a storm blown through town and caused damage to your home? The first step to determine if you qualify for a roofing claim is to call Ryerson Roofing and request a free inspection. One of our professional team members will then come out and assess your roofing system. We will provide you with a quote for repairs and/or replacement to help get your property back to its pre-storm condition.
The Storm Damage Process
Storm damage can cause a headache but knowing the process can create a seamless process that minimizes stress.
The first step is to verify you have sustained enough damage to file an insurance claim. One of our technicians will help inspect your property and provide insight into what we saw on your roof.
If you have sustained damage, the second step is to file a claim with your insurance company. We will also provide you a quote for the noted damage during this step.
The third step will take place when your assigned insurance adjuster meets at your property. They will then provide you with an itemized estimate for your repairs/replacement using a system called Xacctimate.
Once you agree with the adjuster’s pricing and scope of work, step four is complete. If you disagree, during this step you will work with the adjuster on any supplements to ensure everything is covered.
The fifth and final step is to get started! Our team will work with you to pick out shingles, materials, and colors to ensure your new roof is perfect for your property!
Important Things to Remember
There are various laws that have been added to ensure that contractors and homeowners are protected. It’s important that you work with a contractor who is aware of these laws and in compliance in order to ensure you are not breaking the law.
During storms, floods of “storm chasers” fill the area offering to waive deductibles or other “benefits” that encourages homeowners to work with them. Unfortunately, these storm chasers tend to cut corners, use products that are not reputable, or overinflate the bill to your insurance company. To prevent that, the state of Texas has created a state law that makes it illegal for a contractor to waive your insurance deductible. House Bill No. 2102 sets clear guidelines about what is expected with contractors and we fully follow the law.
Any company that offers to pick up your deductible is breaking the law, and if you agree to use their services, you are also breaking the law. Work with a reputable contractor with roots in the Grapevine area! Ryerson Roofing will always be here for you
