Storm Damage Insurance Information

Knowing what storm damage will be covered by your insurance company and what won’t is difficult. There are no guarantees, but you’ll be better prepared with an inspection done by a former insurance adjuster.

Unlike other companies that partner with insurance companies, our storm damage team has experience behind the scenes. Our storm damage evaluation is done by a former insurance adjuster, making us better equipped to advise you on what insurance is likely to cover. We will:

  • Identify storm damage and repair needs.
  • Explain how insurance companies approach coverage and claims.
  • Help you understand how insurance companies determine what you’re owed.
  • Advise you on the insurance process and ways to make it go smoothly.
  • Ensure you are getting all the coverage you are afforded in your policy.
  • Provide storm damage services, such as roof replacement, as needed.

Storm Damage to Roofs

Professional storm damage assessments in Charlotte.

Roofs are most commonly damaged in storms when there’s strong wind, hail, or debris such as falling trees that impact the roof. Roofs can also be damaged when water gets beneath shingles, which is more common in older roofs and homes with prior roof damage.

Vision Roofing evaluates rooftop storm damage and provides repair recommendations. Our roof replacement services will fix any problems we identify and help prevent future damage.

Storm Damage to Gutters

Severe storms can damage gutters.

Gutters can be damaged or knocked loose by hail as well as strong wind and falling debris, causing water to collect near your home’s foundation. Debris such as leaves, branches, and garbage can also collect in gutters during storms, blocking the flow of water.

We evaluate storm damage to gutters and provide gutter installation and protection services to keep your gutters functioning properly. During our evaluation, we’ll assess the condition of your gutters and identify problem areas, such as places where gutters are sagging or have become detached from your home. Since these issues can be overlooked by insurance adjusters, we’ll help you ensure all relevant damage is included in your homeowner’s claim.

Storm Damage to House Siding

Rain and storms can damage house siding.Like roofs and gutters, strong winds and debris from storms can damage house siding. Not only does damaged siding reduce the curb appeal and value of your home, it can open your home up to additional weather damage as well as pests that enter through new holes or crevices.

Vision Roofing will quickly and accurately evaluate your home’s entire exterior, inspecting siding for any damage caused by recent storms. Our siding services will help with storm restoration to ensure your home is properly equipped to handle future weather events.

Charlotte Storm & Wind Damage Restoration FAQs

What kind of roof damage is covered by insurance?

Homeowners’ policies typically cover accidental, direct physical loss to a covered structure based on a specific cause of loss, such as hail damage or wind damage. Usually, coverage extends to losses that occur on a specific date. However, insurance does not typically cover rot, deterioration or losses that happen over an extended period of time. It’s important to review your policy for specific details or contact us to help you understand the policy and answer any questions you may have.

Does insurance cover siding damage?

If the siding of your home in Charlotte has been damaged by a storm due to hail or wind, most insurance policies will cover the cost to replace the sections of siding that was damaged. In many situations, homeowners insurance covers siding damage that’s related to storms or other unavoidable accidents. If the siding damage is due to high winds that have blown siding loose, repairing that will likely be covered. But if siding damage is a result of poor maintenance, then your home insurance may not cover it.

What kind of storm damage does insurance cover?

Typically, homeowners insurance will help cover the cost of storm damage, including damage from water, ice, lightning strikes, power surges, wind, hail and fallen trees. This can include storm damage to your roof, siding, or interior of your Charlotte home. However, flood and surface water damage is typically not covered by a standard policy, so it’s important to check the details of your policy.

How soon can storm and wind damage repairs be made by a professional?
