We Urge Omaha Residents to Stay Safe During and After Hail Storms
As always we caution homeowners to make safety a priority. Do not go outside during an active hail storm to investigate damage. If you have an active leak, have a roofing company come out to emergency tarp your roof, this service is typically covered by insurance at no cost to the homeowner. This can be done prior to making a hail damage insurance claim.
Do not climb up on your roof to inspect for damage, after a storm your roof is slippery and could have enough damage for it to not be able to support you. All reputable roofing companies in Omaha offer roof inspections free of charge, beware of any roofer asking you for money upfront.
