SCBS has on-staff HAAG Certified inspectors who have been trained to forensically assess storm and analyze storm damage. These assessments are no cost service to SCBS clients. After a thorough inspection has been completed, SCBS will provide you with a detailed report which outlines any damage that may have been found.
If damage is identified, SCBS can provide you a proposal to repair the impacted areas. In some cases, your insurance policy may cover damage done by a storm. Should you decide to file a claim, our team has extensive experience working with insurance companies.
SCBS has a long and experienced list of subcontractors that we rely on and trust to help repair damaged roofs. Once SCBS has been contracted to begin repairs, we will design a build plan, coordinate with our subcontractors, mobilize to the site, and monitor/oversee the construction activities to ensure a safe work environment.
At the conclusion of construction activities, SCBS, LLC will provide you with a comprehensive close-out report. This report will detail all the work and finishes which were installed in your home or business. It will also include any warranties and optional extended warranties for the work which was performed. You will have the opportunity to walk the project with a project manager and point out any issues that need to be addressed prior to SCBS, LLC demobilizing from the project.

In 2018 alone there were more than 50 locations that were hit with hail 1 inch in diameter or larger. This size hail can cause damage to roofs that can lead to accelerated aging and if left unrepaired may cause more serious problems such as leaking.
With a shingle roof, the hail damage can be spotted by indentions or fractures to the shingle that aren’t visible from the ground. These indentations can cause granule loss which exposes the asphalt coating directly to the elements causing accelerated aging.
With a flat roof, the hail damage can be spotted by fractures to the coating in various sizes and locations. Over time water enters these hairline fractures and through freezing and thawing and material shrinkage, these fractures eventually open enough to allow water to penetrate through.
Most insurance policies cover hail damage (though it’s important to contact your insurance provider to clarify your coverage), however, these companies also have the tendency to write off most hail damage as cosmetic. Therefore, it’s important to have an experienced contractor who knows the difference between cosmetic and functional damage and can help ensure your roof is properly repaired or replaced before small damage turns into a big problem.
If your business or home has been hit by a hailstorm, it’s important to have it inspected by an experienced inspector as soon as you are able to avoid serious monetary loss in the long run.
