Storm Damage

Call us first to evaluate the condition of your roof. 

 Once your inspection is complete, Elite    Home Restoration will advise if your roof  has:

  • a claim for entire roof replacement
  • need for small repair
  • or no damage

If your roof shows damage, we will:

  1. Help you file a claim with your home owner’s insurance company.
  2. Meet with the insurance adjuster (a representative sent by your insurance company to assess the damages).
  3. Help you file the necessary paperwork to get your roof covered by insurance.
  4. Complete the work signed off by you, the homeowner, and submit all necessary documentation to your insurance company.
  5. Get you the appropriate funds to ensure your home is restored to pre-storm condition.

What you need to know about Storm Damage Repairs

What is storm damage?

Storm damage can include wind and/or hail – both forces are substantial enough to cause damage to roofs and roof components. Homeowner insurance protects your property in these cases.

My neighbor got a free roof, does that mean I'll get one too?

Not necessarily. 

Each insurance company sends out an adjuster to asses the damages. Some adjusters will not approve roof replacements or repairs if they do not meet specific criteria.

Why should I have my chosen contractor meet with the insurance company's adjuster?

It is important to have your contractor at the adjuster appointment to ensure all points of damage are documented for review. Your Elite Home Restoration contractor oversees the adjuster appointment and reports all the damage that was observed at your inspection.

A different roofing company quoted me a lower price, should I use that company instead?

That depends. 

Each roofing company can provide different quotes based on different initial estimates. The cheapest contractor might not be giving you a full quote and may add on additional charges during the job.

The old saying, you get what you pay for, does apply in these cases. Make sure your contractor is using quality materials and labor.

Also, make sure your roofer is licensed, bonded and insured in the state of Illinois. If required, verify your roofer pulls the correct permits for the proposed project.
