Alberta storms are something we’ve all had to deal with at some point, and the damages that can incur as a result of these storms can be a real headache for all homeowners in Calgary and the surrounding area. Calgary is in the heart of the Alberta region nicknamed “hailstorm alley” so it’s no surprise that we do get hail here, and that sometimes it can be worse than we hope for. Past hailstorms in Calgary have incurred millions of dollars in damages, with the hailstorm back in 2020 causing over 1 billion dollars in damages throughout the area.
We understand that when a hailstorm hits, it can be an overwhelming time for a homeowner, but we hope that this guide can help direct you in the right direction when trying to figure out what to do after a hailstorm hits. We’ve been involved in this space for many years and know that having an experienced company guide you through the insurance process alleviates stress and ensures that your repairs are completed with confidence. As a preferred contractor of almost all the insurance companies serving Alberta, we at Epic Roofing and Exteriors have helped over 20,000 homeowners process their insurance claims, turning headaches in to peace of mind.
The very first thing you want to do when your home has been damaged by wind or hail is to contact your insurance company.
Your insurance adjuster will be able to discuss the process of starting a claim, and provide any details that are related to your policy. Most insurance companies will then send a field adjuster or preferred vendor (like Epic Roofing) to assess the damage. It’s important to get a qualified inspector to do this assessment, so contacting your insurance company will easily get you access to preferred vendors, who will then send out qualified inspectors. It is important to note that all legitimate inspectors and adjustors are HAAG Certified. To learn more about the HAAG Certification, CLICK HERE
