Storms with high winds, particularly hurricanes, can destroy your roofing system. Once damaged it can be less than effective at its #1 job – keeping the rest of your home dry and protected. Absent or bent shingles that have been damaged by the wind, can allow roof leaks causing significant damage to the interior of your home. Left undetected, even small roof leaks can cause thousands of dollars of damage down the road.
Insurance Claims for Storm Damage and Roof Repairs is OUR SPECIALTY!
Most roof damage caused by storms is covered by your home owner’s insurance policy. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to get the insurance company to pay for all of the damage, even when it is covered by your policy. Typically insurance adjusters, who work for the insurance company, include only the roof in the insurance claim leaving out window screens, gutters, and other items damaged by the storm. This is why it is so important to work with a restoration company in Ocala that has a lot of experience handling insurance claims.
OneRestore is a restoration company. We specializing in helping home owners handle all types of emergencies and the insurance claim process that goes along with them. We have assisted home owners just like you in The Villages recover from just about every type of emergency including flood damage, sewer backups, mold removal, biohazard removal and cleanup, and complete reconstruction after a fire. Just about every job we do involves an insurance claim, forcing us to work with insurance adjusters in The Villages – most of whom we know very well at this point! Our process starts with a complete inspection of your property – inside and out – to get a thorough evaluation of the damage that has been caused by the storm. Next, our Storm Damage Roof Repair specialist will meet personally with your insurance company’s adjuster to make sure that all damaged items are included in the claim report, in order to get the full cost to repair your home covered by your insurance. Regrettably, most home owners omit several items that should be included in their claim and end up with a check for considerably less than the amount actually required to restore their home. Once your claim is filed and you accept that check, insurance companies will typically not allow any modifications to your claim.
Even if you think the damage to your roof is minor, even small leaks can lead to bigger problems down the road. And, most of the time even when not reported at the time of the storm, much of the damage can still be covered by your home owners insurance policy. Often, if there is enough evidence of storm damage, your roof can be completely repaired or replaced at little to no cost to you.

Hail Damage Roof Repair
Did you know that hail damage can reduce the expected life of your roof and may even void the manufacturer warranty? Unfortunately, because damage from hail doesn’t always cause immediate leaks or problems, most people aren’t even aware that they have any roof damage until much later. Then because time has passed, it may not even occur to the owner of the home that his roof problems may have been caused by that storm several months ago and may be covered by insurance!
If your roof needs repair or replacement start by contacting the storm damage restoration experts at OneRestore. We begin each job with a complete inspection of your roof – inside and out – paying special attention to any evidence of previous storm damage. If we see any indication of storm damage to your roof, our insurance specialist will help you file a claim and even meet with your claims adjuster.
Can Roof Damage That Occurred a While Ago Still be Covered by Insurance?
Frequently during storms with hail or high winds, a roof will sustain minor damage that isn’t immediately detected. After several months, the roof may begin to leak and you notice dampness in your attic or water stains on your interior walls or ceiling. If there is even a chance that the original cause of this water may be the result of storm damage to your roof or shingles, instead of contacting a standard roofing contractor your should contact a restoration company in The Villages 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 handle.
- Our storm damage experts have seen it all and can fully assess your situation finding storm damage evidence that will be needed by the insurance company.
- If there has been a time lapse – even if the leaks are small – you probably have mold damage. OneRestore started our business years ago in mold remediation – we can properly detect and eliminate mold.
- We have vast experience dealing with insurance companies and their claims adjusters. We know exactly what each of them are looking for in order to do their jobs, and we understand the documentation that is required to get your insurance company to pay for your repairs.
