We are very passionate about the insurance industry and their lack of true evaluation and compensation for homeowners claims.

House Exterior, Roofing and Siding Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my roof has storm damage?
Storm damage is not visible from the ground, and even from the roof, may not be visible to the untrained eye. If you see your neighbors getting work done to their roofs and exteriors after a severe storm, hailstorm or high winds, there is a good possibility your home also suffered damage. Give Johnson Exteriors a call at (763) 355-4458 for a free inspection of your roof, siding, windows and gutters.
What does roof hail damage look like?
Hail damage causes soft spots or bruising to asphalt shingles and loosens the surface layer of hard granules, which may or may not be noticeable except by trained inspectors. Another way to spot hail damage is to inspect the roof vents for dents. If the vents are damaged, the shingles will have sustained damage as well. Hail may also break through the felt matting of the shingles and cause them to crack or break. Over time, from one to two or more years, moisture seeps into the damaged shingles to create leaks. Water damage over time is much more destructive to the integrity of your home and its value, which is the precise reason insurers are willing to pay hail storm claims sooner rather than later.
Do I need to get my roof replaced right away?
Although hail damage may not pose an immediate threat to your roof’s integrity, many insurance companies have a time limit on making a claim. It’s prudent to get your roof repaired or replaced in a timely manner before leaks develop and create further damage and the insurance will no longer cover the costs.
On vinyl siding hail damage causes visible breaks, cracks or holes. However, damage to aluminum siding shows up differently. Large hailstones cause dents throughout the entire elevation, while smaller hail that hits the siding from strong crosswinds can produce dents large enough to significantly damage the aluminum.
How long do I have to file a homeowner’s insurance claim for weather damage?
All insurance policies are different, and the time to file a claim can range from six months to two years. The wisest course is to call a roofing contractor who is Hail damage certified soon after the storm to inspect your roof and exterior and work with the insurer for full compensation.
If I file a storm damage claim will the insurance company raise my rates?
After severe weather or a natural disaster has damaged a number of homes in a region, the insurance companies may raise everyone’s rates, so it does make sense to file a claim and have the damage to your home repaired. By not filing a timely claim, the potential increase in your rates will count toward paying everyone else’s claims, but you will not have benefited from paying higher premiums. So it makes sense to get reimbursed for storm damage to your home’s exterior.
If I lost some roof shingles in a storm am I required to tarp my roof?
Almost all insurance contracts require you to mitigate or prevent additional damage to your roof because if leaks are allowed to damage the structure or interior of the house, it could jeopardize your chances of collecting a settlement for a roof insurance claim. Fulfill any necessary responsibilities as outlined in your policy to prevent further damage to the roof, and call Johnson Exteriors as soon as possible after a severe storm to ensure you have done your part for the insurance claim process.
My insurance company denied my claim. Is there anything I can do?
Once you choose a roofing contractor who is certified for storm inspections you are entitled to a re-inspection. Bryan Johnson of Johnson Exteriors is a Haag certified inspector for storm damage. He has successfully re-filed claims for full compensation with insurance companies by working directly with insurance adjusters to provide evidence of damage.
Should I get bids from several roofing contractors for storm damage?
The cost for roof and siding repair or replacement is not that important, since the insurance company is responsible to indemnify you properly for your covered loss per your homeowner policy agreement. Your cost technically will be the same no matter which contractor you hire, which will be the amount of your deductible. Therefore, it is important that you choose the contractor who you feel you can trust to do the best quality of work, and who will complete the work per building code requirements and per the manufacturer’s specifications. Your contractor should also have great experience dealing with insurance adjusters to collect the full amount to repair your roof, siding, windows, and gutters.
What is the storm damage claim process?
First, find the contractor that you want to do the work for you so they can do their inspection and confirm all the damage to your property. Then Call the 1-800 number for claims that appears on your homeowner’s insurance policy – not your agent. The insurance representative will ask some basic questions and give you a claim number. Next, an insurance adjuster will contact you for an appointment to look at your roof and exterior. Always coordinate this appointment so the adjuster meets with your roofing contractor of choice. Your contractor should work directly with the insurance company to handle paperwork and act as your advocate on the claim. Be sure to look for and report water spots or stains you find on ceilings, walls, corners or near windows so that these areas get accounted for as well. For the best results, your contractor should walk around with the insurance adjuster during his or her’s inspection, to make sure everything is accounted for from their previous inspection. An experienced roofing contractor will also inform an out-of-state adjustor about state and local roofing codes.
How long does the insurance process take?
From the time you receive your claim number, which begins the filing procedures, you can expect it to take about 2-3 months to complete the entire process. The actual roofing job usually takes only one or two days to complete. However, some common delays are the time it takes to bring in the insurance adjustor and for him to file his report, waiting on city permits to begin the work, and scheduling city inspections. Inquire early if your mortgage company needs to endorse the insurance check. The right contractor should be able to walk you through all these steps.
Can you claim storm damage on your taxes?
According to the IRS, if the event is a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, tornado, flood or earthquake, you may be able to deduct losses based on damage to your property; however, it does not include losses from normal wear and tear, including expected or seasonal weather events. If your home is damaged in a sudden, unexpected or unusual disaster, you must file a timely claim for reimbursement with your insurance company in order to deduct losses on your tax return that are not covered by insurance.
How can Johnson Exteriors help me with my storm damage roof insurance claim?
Call us as soon as possible after the storm or hail if you suspect or see dents, dings or missing shingles on your roof, siding, or gutters, or notice any wetness or leaks in the house. We will respond immediately and make an appointment for a full inspection, including getting up on the roof to examine the shingles, flashing, vent covers, and other roofing features for evidence of damage. We walk the home’s perimeter to evaluate the gutters, downspouts, windows, siding and paint. We also inspect the attic for possible water leak damage and ventilation. After the inspection, we will go over everything with you and show you photos of any damage, as well as explain how it affects the value of your property.
