One of the things that Overland Park homeowners Sarah & Colin Humphrey liked about their home when they bought it in 2007 was that it had a brand new, “50-year” roof. They wanted a home that would be safe and sound for their growing family that wouldn’t require a lot of maintenance or additional costs.
The Hail Storm ….
Flash forward to Spring 2009, and a typical Kansas City hail storm did its worst to their roof. In addition to damaging the composite shingles on their Overland Park roof, their window screens were dented, one window was broken, the gutters were knocked low and the backyard swing set and wood fence were dented and marred by hail.
Of course, roof hail damage is hard to see on a composite roof if you aren’t trained in what to look for, and especially if you’re just looking from ground level. They assumed their Overland Park roof was just fine, especially since they were told by the Realtor that it was a “50-year” roof. That is, of course, until they noticed all their neighbors were getting new roofs installed.
The Overland Park Roofing Solution…
One call to The Roofing Man took care of the Humphrey’s Overland Park roof and hail damage worries. Roofing Man Chris Hosch quickly came out to assess the roof damage and worked with their Insurance Agent to have an Adjuster come to their home and assess the Overland Park hail damage as well. Chris worked with the Adjuster to ensure that the correct replacement costs were assessed, including the true costs to fix their steep roof, and to make sure that a roof replacement of comparable quality was covered.
“With two young kids, it was especially nice that our new roof was completely installed in less than three days. The Roofing Man roofers were careful to pick up all the debris and loose nails in the yard so that I didn’t have to worry about the kids finding anything dangerous.”
In addition to technical help, Chris also helped them choose a roof style and color that fit in with the style of their home and their Overland Park neighborhood (Nottingham Downs, near 127th and Lamar). He even provided Sarah and Colin with a list of nearby addresses of roofs that he thought were good examples of different shingle styles so that they could drive by and see their options installed. The composite, hail resistant shingles they chose are not only aesthetically pleasing, but now provide them with the protection they need from future Kansas City hail damage.
