Looking for help with a hail claim in Florida?
Unlike some other states, hail is not a problem that we see every day in Florida. However, as we have recently seen, when hail hits it can cause extensive damage to roofs, cars, windows, etc. As we don’t see hail on a regular basis here in Florida, we are faced with insurance company adjusters and even some public adjusters that are not versed on what to look for and in turn, how to properly adjuster Florida Hail Claims. Greg Roover, the president of Claim Concepts began his career as a Catastrophe Adjuster and has been deployed and worked major hail storms throughout the country, he knows how to properly identify and document hail damage. Unlike the roofing companies that you are likely seeing canvas your neighborhood offering ‘free roofs’, our Public Adjusters know how to properly investigate Florida hail damage claims and will ONLY give you their honest opinion. Many of the storm chasing roofing companies will swarm to hail storm victims offering free roofs, be careful what you sign! We offer a free claim consultation and roof inspection, upon inspecting your roof and other property we will then explain your damages and discuss the claims process in detail and leave the choice of whether or not to file the claim up to you.
Did you know that large hail stones can fall from the sky at speeds above 100 miles per hour? Hail storms can and will damage Automobiles, Roofs, Gutters, Siding and even your A/C Condensing unit can become damaged. In fact, on average hail causes more than $1 billion dollars in damage to properties and crops every year. When there is damage to your car or siding it is typically pretty obvious, the tricky part of hails storms is identifying hail damage to your roofing system.
Roofing systems need to be inspected by a roof inspector that has specific training and experience dealing with hail damage to roofs. It is much different than looking at a roof after a hurricane where there will most likely be missing shingles and damage that is visible from the ground. Identifying hail strikes that damage a roof can sometimes be difficult to see even when on the roof unless you have experience and know exactly what you are looking for. Just because you don’t see the hail damage yourself does not mean that you don’t have hail damage. If you know that hail struck your home, do yourself a favor and have it inspected. However, beware of the roofing contractors going door to door offering free roof inspections as some may be honest business people while others are simply looking to sign up as many new roofs as possible and they may tell you that your roof is damaged whether they see any damage or not.
