First, you need to write the date of the storm, and if is possible to take pictures of the damage. It is important to save this information, so you can show to your insurance agent. Second, you need to call a roofing company and get a free estimate to confirm that you have hail damage on your roof or siding of your house. Always choose a local contractor because after the work is done, if you have a leak on your roof, they have warranty and they will come back to fix it. Third, read your policy and state regulations and make sure that your policy will cover this claim. It is illegal for an insurance company to cancel your policy due to a weather event. Forth, File your claim to the insurance company. After the claim is made, the company will send an adjuster to check on your damage. It is better if you have a representative from the roofing company you choose, so they compare notes and make sure that you will get what you deserve to fix you roof and leave as it was before the storm. Fifth, After your claim has been approved, the company will send you a check for the amount they approved without the deductible. Complete the works soon as possible. Most of the companies offer you a referral fee after completing the work. If they did a great job, refer them to your friends and colleges. They will pay you for this.
