Hail Damage Inspectors in Ohio & Illinois

Hail damage is one of the biggest threats to roofs in Ohio & Illinois!

Roofing Annex is ready to confront this issue beyond the scope of an average roofing contractor. Our staff of Restoration Specialists has a background in construction but these experts are not roofers in the hammer and nail sense. Instead they are Haag trained and certified storm damage technicians proficient in the forensics of wind and hail damage to various roofing types, commercial and residential. This means they understand what they are seeing, documenting, reporting beyond the skill set of a physical roofer.

The regions we serve are hot spots for hail damage! Both the Greater Cincinnati area and Chicago suburbs see multiple hail storms a year. We consider hailstones greater than half an inch that hit with winds in excess of 45 MPH to be a good reason to check on any roof over 20 years old. One inch hail with winds over 55 MPH is enough to warrant an exam of any roof!

Why have a Hail Damage Inspector Looking At Your Roof?

Easy – Proper Representation Means an Insurance Claim Will Likely Pass! A Roofing Annex restoration specialist is your BEST bet for protecting your home against both obvious damage and the hard-to-see kind that may be a slower killer. Why? Not only can our Inspectors properly document and report the damage but they guide homeowners through the proper steps of an insurance claim. Then there is our ADOCACY where we meet with the field adjuster to provide concrete proof of the extent of the damage. We know the language in policies and how to work with insurers to find an equitable outcome for your claim. Even when other have failed multiple times, if we believe in the validity of your hail damage claim we will work diligently for a fair settlement. It’s not that your insurer is necessarily looking out for its own interests, denied claims are usually due to a lack of good representation and guidance or the insurance adjuster doesn’t understand the damage or their own policy (Very common). That’s where we come in.

Here’s the kicker… We provide this service for FREE and without an ounce of strong-arming or smooth talking for your business! We only wish to be considered for the work via the submission of our free estimate.

Spring is the most tumultuous season for hail storms in Ohio and Illinois. Thunderstorms typically see winds speeds over 45 MPH with hail over half an inch and hard driven rain that finds its way into every crevasse.

A storm cell on April 9th produced one to two inch hailstones and 48 to 70 MPH winds in isolated spots throughout western Chicagoland and in Ohio from Kentucky to Columbus.

On the wind damage side, Roofing Annex inspectors are finding plenty of missing singles, missing ridge caps, cracked shingles, and loose shingles due to the constant abuse. In places like Cincinnati, Delhi, Madeira, Indian Hill, and Dayton the hail pocked, tore, and even punctured shingles.
