Unlike “storm chaser” contractors who are here today, gone tomorrow, Modern Remodeling is a true insurance restoration contractor — the type of contractor you need when thousands of dollars are on the line from wind and hail damage.
When a storm damages your property, you need to be very careful about the type of contractor you choose for your restoration. Modern Remodeling knows what to look for in cases of hail, extreme wind, and rain.
We have an in-depth knowledge of the claims process, what is covered, what is excluded, and how to help prevent you from spending more than your deductible out-of-pocket. More importantly, we ensure that everything on the claim is clearly and specifically identified as legitimate damage related to a storm, so that you’re protected against insurance fraud and its heavy penalties.
Hail under the size of .75 inches is too small to cause damage; however, if hail is .75 inches or greater, it can damage aluminum siding, windows and even roof shingles. Because hail damage on roof shingles is virtually undetectable to the untrained eye, it’s important to have an expert assess the damage quickly. Modern Remodeling employs experts who are trained to spot hail damage, and can perform a proper inspection of the impacted areas.
The main signs of hail damage usually include:
Roof shingle bruising (granule loss)
Roof granules found in gutters
Small dents on gutters and downspouts
Damaged or torn window screens
During severe storms, asphalt shingles can be seriously damaged and require repair or replacement. After a tornado, you may notice split seams and torn or missing shingles on your roof. This can result in leaking and serious water damage. If a repair or replacement is not made to your roof this can lead to mold formation and wood rot, which can compromise the structural integrity of your roof. In severe windstorms, it is common for shingles or sections of the roof to be missing altogether.
On other types of roofs, including shake (wood), metal, tile and slate, wind damage can include broken or cracked shingles, missing shingles, torn or split seams, and missing sections of the roof. If a tree limb or other debris has fallen onto your roof during the storm, you may also have structural damage and will want to exercise extreme caution.
Common signs of roof damage include:
Bruised or dented asphalt shingles
Cracked or broken tile, slate, or concrete shingles
Granules collecting in gutters or downspouts
Leaks in your roof or ceiling
Dents on vents, gutters or flashing

BEFORE & AFTER
Modern Remodeling did an amazing job with our roof replacement. They worked directly with our insurance company to make sure we got the correct replacement value. The installers worked very hard and our new roof looks amazing! Modern Remodeling also replaced our old windows and roof at our previous home so we knew they would do a great job.
