Sub­ject: Hail Storm Dam­age Infor­ma­tion for North­ern Vir­ginia


Dear  Home­own­er,


Dur­ing the recent series of wind ­storms that impact­ed the region, many homes expe­ri­enced dam­age. You may have noticed signs from roof­ing com­pa­nies pop­ping up through­out your neigh­bor­hood. The fact that the “storm chasers” have arrived can be a good indi­ca­tion that your area is involved. We want­ed to send a memo to our clients to help in any way we can! 


Step one, relax!  While sig­nif­i­cant winds may have dam­aged the shin­gles, sid­ing and gut­ters the sit­u­a­tion is not nec­es­sar­i­ly an imme­di­ate threat, and your roof will prob­a­bly not leak with small dam­ages. In this brief let­ter, I will give some sug­ges­tions on how to pro­ceed with the eval­u­a­tion of the pos­si­ble dam­ages to your home with local roof­ing com­pa­nies who will be here for many years after the “storm­ers” have moved on to anoth­er hail oppor­tu­ni­ty.


Usu­ally there is a two-year stat­ue if lim­i­ta­tions on report­ing this dam­age to the insur­ance com­pany. Your insur­ance com­pany will already be aware of the storm and may have dis­patched addi­tional adjusters to the area. Mar­shall Roof­ing, Sid­ing, and Win­dows has been ser­vic­ing North­ern Vir­ginia and Mary­land since 1980 and has assist­ed local home­own­ers through numer­ous major storm events dur­ing the past 38 years. You do have a lit­tle time and don’t need to rush to find the first con­trac­tor that knocks on your door.


If you think you may have dam­age, the first step would be to have one of our esti­ma­tors pro­vide you with a free eval­u­a­tion of your roof, sid­ing, and gut­ters to deter­mine if a report needs to be made to the insur­ance com­pany. Remem­ber, each claim report can raise your pre­mi­ums so most of us don’t want to file a claim unless it’s nec­es­sary. Our esti­ma­tors will let you know if they find dam­age and give you guid­ance on how to pro­ceed through the process. We may be able to meet an adjuster at your house to pro­vide roof access and to point out pos­si­ble dam­age. Some insur­ance com­pa­nies may require that you sign a form autho­riz­ing Mar­shall Roof­ing to rep­re­sent you in this claim. This will enable us to work direct­ly with the adjuster to make sure their adjust­ment is cor­rect includ­ing the num­ber of square feet of roof­ing mate­ri­als, local require­ments for ice pro­tec­tion, etc.


After the adjuster makes this eval­u­a­tion he will pre­pare an adjust­ment report, usu­ally using a pro­gram such as Xac­ti­mate, list­ing the allowance for the var­i­ous aspects of the dam­age. Usu­ally a large por­tion of the allowance will be held back until the work is done. This will show up as depre­ci­a­tion, but this mon­ey is usu­ally released when the work is com­plet­ed.


I hope this infor­ma­tion has been help­ful, and please let us know if we can be of assis­tance with your storm dam­age. Here are five ques­tions to ask when you are look­ing for a con­trac­tor
