Has your roof recently been damaged by storms – hurricanes, tornadoes or high winds in the Ocala area? OneRestore not only has certified roofers, but our roof repair insurance claims expert can help you cover the full cost of your roof replacement or repairs.

Hurricanes and the high winds that come with them can destroy a roofing system causing it to be ineffective at its number one job – keeping the rest of your home dry and protected. Missing or bent shingles, damaged by the wind, can cause roof leaks and damage to the interior of your home. Undetected, even minor roof leaks can cause thousands of dollars of damage down the road.
Insurance Claims for Storm Damage and Roof Repairs – OUR SPECIALTY!
Most roof damage caused by storms are covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. That’s the good news. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to get all of the damage paid for that is covered by your policy. Many insurance adjusters (remember – they work for the insurance company) will include only the roof in the claim leaving out gutters, window screens, and other items that were also damaged by the storm. That is why it is critical to work with a company that has experience handling these types of claims.
OneRestore is a restoration company, specializing in helping homeowners through these types of emergencies and the insurance claim process that comes with them. We have helped homeowners in Ocala with just about every type of emergency from storms, floods and sewer backups, to complete rebuilds after a fire. Just about every job we do involves an insurance claim and requires us to work with an insurance adjuster in the area – most of whom we know on a first name basis. We will start with a thorough inspection of your property – inside and out – to get a complete assessment of the damage caused by the storm. Our Storm/Damage Roof Repair specialists will meet personally with the adjuster to be certain that all damaged items are included in the report in order to get your total cost for repair covered by your insurance company. Sadly, most homeowners miss many items that should be included in their claim and accept a check for less than the amount needed to restore their home. Once you file a claim and accept that check, most insurance companies will not allow you to modify your claim.
Even if you think your roof damage is minor, it can still lead to bigger problems down the road. And, chances are it can still be covered by your home owners insurance. Often, with sufficient evidence of damage, it can be completely repaired or replaced at little to no cost to you.

Hail Damage Roof Repair
Did you know that hail damage will shorten the life of your roof and can even void the shingle manufacturer’s warranty? Unfortunately, because it doesn’t always cause immediate leaks or problems, many homeowners are unaware they have sustained any roof damage until much later. Once time has gone by, it doesn’t even occur to the homeowner that his roof failure may be a result of storm damage and covered by insurance!
If you need a roof repair or replacement – contact the storm damage restoration experts at OneRestore. We start every job with a complete inspection of your roof system inside and out – looking for evidence of previous storm damage. If we find any indication of 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 happens to a roof system from hail or high winds that isn’t immediately detected. Months later, the roof starts to leak and you notice spots on your interior walls and ceiling, or dampness in your attic. If you even suspect that the original cause of this water may be due to storm damage, you should contact a restoration company instead of a standard roofing contractor to assess your situation.
As a restoration specialist, we can do many things for you that a standard roofing contractor is just not equipped to handle.
- We can fully assess the situation and find evidence that your damage was caused by a storm
- If you have had roof leaks for any period of time, regardless of how small, you probably have mold damage as well. OneRestore started our business in mold remediation and can properly detect and treat a property to eliminate mold.
- We have extensive experience with insurance companies and their claims adjusters. We know exactly what they are looking for, and can provide the right kind of evidence to get your damage repaired and paid for by the insurance company.
If your roof begins to fail before the estimated life, this is often due to storm damage to your roof system that went undetected. Call the Ocala Storm Damage Roof Repair Team at OneRestore. We’ll give you our honest assessment and if we believe that any portion of your roof replacement can be covered by insurance, we will fight to help you get it.
