“If you contact me and explain your situation, I will do my best to guide you and give you sound advice on your current roof and things to consider when choosing a contractor and your next roof.“
I remember several years ago being at a Texas Department of Insurance hearing. They were searching for a way to encourage the use of hail-resistant roofing materials. What was proposed was the UL 2218 Impact Resistance test. Under this test roofing samples would be tested with 2” steel balls dropped from a height of 20’. It was a great test but I brought up a concern I had. That concern was that the UL 2218 protocol tests only new roofing materials. I knew that many products would pass the test when they were new but they would not pass the test after a few years’ exposure to the elements. That seemed very short-sighted to me.
So, I asked this question: “Why should insurance companies encourage the use of roofing materials that were more expensive but would only be hail-resistant for a few years?” They told me to sit down and be quiet. I believe they did not want the situation to be further complicated.
So, here we are years later…and homeowners are buying roofs they think are hail resistant, and then finding themselves very disappointed later on.
Concerned about hail? I want to help.
Whether you have recently been impacted (no pun intended) by a hailstorm or you’re concerned about the probability of a future storm and you want the best possible protection, I want to help. I have over 30 years of experience in the residential roofing industry. While my day job is that of a metal roofing manufacturer, I love nothing more than answering questions and providing resources and information that help homeowners make the best roofing decisions for them and their homes.
Hail Damage? Don’t sign up with a storm-chaser.
If you think your roof might currently have hail damage, drop me an email, or send me photos of your roof. Do not fall for the contractors who will come knocking on your door asking you to “sign up” with them and they will negotiate your insurance claim for you. Many of them are opportunistic storm-chasers and, no matter what they say, they do NOT have your best interest at heart. They want to “lock you in” and limit your future choices about your roof.
If you contact me and explain your situation, I will do my best to guide you and give you sound advice on your current roof and things to consider when choosing a contractor and your next roof.
If your concern is more about choosing the best next roof for your home, I’d love to hear from you. Tell me about your home, its current roof, your attic ventilation … anything that you can think of. Send photos of your home. And I will answer and give you my best advice for things to think about.
And it’s all free.
That’s because the calling on my life is to help others. And I do that in the area where I have been so privileged to spend my entire career. I know the residential roofing industry inside and out. I want to share what I know, and help you achieve the wise, cost-effective, and worry-free roofing future that you deserve.
