Here’s How to Schedule Your Roofing Repair in New Braunfels
New Braunfels has been the target of the first major hail storm of the year two years running—in 2022 and again this March. With all the hail in New Braunfels, many homeowners have been faced with a roofing repair or even a full replacement due to damage.
As leading storm repair and restoration experts in Central Texas, we’re pros when it comes to dealing with hail here at Action Roofing & Construction, Inc. We’ve been hard at work completing inspections, repairs, and replacements throughout New Braunfels and the surrounding area. If you live in the area, chances are your home was affected by recent hail storms. Here’s what you need to keep in mind when scheduling a repair!
You Can File a Claim for Damage Done in 2022 or 2023
New Braunfels has won an unfortunate lottery two years in a row. Even if your home escaped the brunt of the storm this year, your roof may already have been damaged in 2022, when damaging hail previously swept through the area.
Luckily, here in Texas, the window for filing a claim for storm damage is typically around two years. This means you may still be able to get coverage for your New Braunfels roofing repair, even if it was last year’s storm that caused the damage.
Hire an Experienced Local for Repairs
Following a major storm, it can be tempting to hire the first roofer that knocks on your door. While it is important to address damage quickly, we don’t recommend hiring any roofer until you’ve done your research.
Local roofing companies with experience in storm repair and insurance claims will be best. While not all out-of-town roofers are scam artists, many are, and hiring local is often the most surefire way to avoid problems. Plus, local roofers have better knowledge of the area’s unique roofing needs, more experience with building codes, and can even have close relationships with local manufacturers and distributors, which can lead to major savings and faster repairs.
File a Claim—and Have a Roofer Present
After a major hail storm, it’s important to file a claim promptly. Not only will this improve the health of your roof overall, but it will also help you get in quickly as roofers’ schedules begin to fill up.
When you file a claim, be sure to contact a professional roofer to be present during your adjustment. A roofer—particularly one with experience in storm restoration—can help point out damage to your claims adjuster and provide evidence to build your case for a claim.
Claim Denied? It’s Not the End of the Line!
Chances are, if your home was damaged during last year’s hail storm you’ve already filed an insurance claim. Unfortunately, claims can be denied for any number of reasons, even if your roof has been damaged. Luckily, a denied claim may not be the end of the story.
At Action Roofing, we can point to many, many cases where we’ve worked with a homeowner to file for readjustment and seen their previously denied claim overturned.* Many times, all it takes is an experienced and dedicated roofing contractor in your corner fighting for you.
Repair or Replace? Consider the TOC
When it comes to deciding between a repair and a full roof replacement, it typically comes down to TOC—or total cost of ownership. Roof repairs can prolong the life of your roof, but they become less cost-efficient as the price goes up. More significant repairs will cost more, while older roofs are less amenable to repairs in general.
In helping you decide between a roof repair and a roof replacement, roofing professionals will evaluate the total cost of ownership for your roof with an additional repair compared to the expected TCO of a new roof. If damage is severe enough, or your roof is too old, a replacement may be warranted.
