Have you recently experienced roof damage caused by storms (hurricanes, tornadoes or high winds) in the Gainesville area? OneRestore has certified roofers, AND our roof repair insurance claims expert can help you maximize your insurance coverage for your roof replacement or repairs. Together they are the Gainesville Storm Damage Roof Repair Team at OneRestore!
Hurricanes and high winds can damage a roofing system rendering it ineffective at its main job – keeping the remainder of your home dry and protected. Shingles that are bent, missing or otherwise damaged by the wind, can allow roof leaks and damage to the interior of your home. Undetected, even minor roof leaks can result in thousands of dollars of damage down the road.
Insurance Claims for Storm Damage and Roof Repairs in Gainesville is OUR SPECIALTY!
Most roof damage that is caused by storms can be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. That is the good news. Sadly, it is not always a simple process to get all of the damage that is covered by your policy, paid for. Many insurance adjusters will include only the roof in the claim leaving out gutters, window screens, and other items that were also damaged by the storm. Keep in mind – they work for the insurance company! That is why it is important to work with a restoration company in Gainesville that has experience handling these types of claims.
OneRestore is a restoration company, specializing in helping homeowners through just about every type of emergency and the insurance process that comes with them. We have helped homeowners in Gainesville with all kinds of emergencies from storms, floods and sewer backups, to complete reconstruction after a fire. The majority of the work we do involves an insurance claim and requires working with an insurance adjuster in the area – most of whom we know quite well. Our experts will start with a thorough inspection of your property – inside and out – to complete an assessment of the damage caused by the storm. Our Storm/Damage Roof Repair specialists will meet personally with your insurance company’s adjuster to be sure all damage is included in the report so that we can get the total cost for repair covered by your insurance company. Unfortunately, many homeowners miss items that should be included in their claim and as a result accept a check for less than the full amount needed to repair their home. Once you file a claim and accept a check from your insurance company, you will usually not be allowed to modify your claim.
Even if you think your roof damage is insignificant, it could still lead to larger more expensive problems down the road. And, it is likely that these repairs can be covered by your home owners insurance. Often, with sufficient evidence of damage, your roof can be completely repaired or replaced at little or no cost to you.

Hail Damage Roof Repair
Did you know that hail damage can reduce the life of your roof and may even void the shingle manufacturer’s warranty? Sadly, because hail damage doesn’t always cause immediate leaks or problems, most homeowners aren’t even aware that they have incurred any roof damage until much later. Once time has passed, the homeowner may not realize that his roof problem may be a result of a previous storm and is most likely covered by insurance!
If you know you need a roof repair or replacement – contact the storm damage restoration experts at OneRestore. We begin every job with a complete inspection of your roof system inside and out – looking for any sign of storm damage. If we find any indication of previous storm damage to your roof, we will help you file a claim and even meet personally with your claims adjuster.
Can Roof Damage That Occurred a While Ago Still be Covered by Insurance?
Often minor damage occurs to a roof system from hail or high winds that is not immediately identified. Months later, your roof begins to leak and you notice spots on the interior walls and ceiling, or wetness in your attic. If there is any chance that the original cause of this water damage may be due to a previous storm, you should contact a restoration company in Gainesville instead of a standard roofing contractor to assess your situation.
As a restoration specialist, OneRestore can do many things for you that a standard roofing contractor is just not equipped to do.
- We can fully assess your roof and find evidence that your damage was caused by a storm
- If your roof has been leaking for any period of time, regardless of how short, you likely have mold damage as well. OneRestore began our business specializing in mold remediation and can properly detect and treat a property to eliminate the threat of mold.
- We have a lot of experience with insurance companies and claims adjusters. We know precisely what they need to process a claim, and can provide the evidence to get your damage repaired and paid for by your insurance company.
If your roof begins to fail before its estimated life, this is often a result of storm damage to your roof that was not noticed earlier. Call the Gainesville Storm Damage Roof Repair Team at OneRestore. We’ll give you our honest evaluation. If we think any part of your roof replacement or repair can be covered by insurance, we will do our best to help you get it.
