Join us as we show you the process for properly making an insurance claim on any damage done to your home. With House Mechanics, you can put your home’s insurance to work for you. An insurance claim is any type of loss that happens to your personal property, vehicle, or home that causes you to open a claim with your insurance company.
Gutters are integral part of the home, they make sure water flows away from the roof and onto the ground. However when you have gutters that are not properly installed then it starts to cost you money. You can be out there paying contractors hundreds of dollars and then they still don’t get the job done right.
Not attached properly
When the roof is built and the rafters are added these are of course extremely important in more ways than one. The rafters of course hold up the roof, but you also use these so that you can anchor in the gutter. There are many times that contractors do not get these nailed in properly. This can cause the gutters to come falling down, this can cause more property damage, and in some instances cause bodily harm.
Hundreds of Dollars
With these repairs comes the hard task of finding a new contractor to come out and get the job done and your gutters back on your roof. Sometimes this can cost hundreds of dollars and won’t even be done properly, this of course is all dependent on the contractor. You want to know the job is done correctly and that will be covered for the years to come.
You can have a contractor come out and put the gutter back up, hopefully they do the job right because if you get a warranty with the work then it will only be a 2 year warranty and the gutter itself may stay up for 2 years before falling down again. House Mechanics offers a Lifetime Labor Warranty, this helps you to feel satisfied that job has been done right, because if it hasn’t then they will come back and make the repairs.

Hail Damage is a big cause of needing a new roof, siding, and windows put in. If just the right storm passes through it can have the potential of producing some pretty nasty hail. Golf ball size hail and larger can destroy the shingles and allow water sot leak through causing damage to your roof.
What to Look for
When House Mechanics comes out to inspect a roof, they will meet with the adjuster to make sure everyone is on the same page and looking at the damage. With multiple sets of eyes on the playing field it helps to spot out some small damage and the really big damage. When thee is significant damage done to a shingle it can be big enough to put a small hole in the shingle. This hole allows water to get through and cause even more damage to the wood underneath.
Damage over time
Water is the biggest culprit to your home, this is why we take so much precaution when building homes to seal it up nice and tight. Hail can cause damage to windwos, siding, and your shingles, this makes it easier for water to come in and destroy the wood over time. With leaks they take so long to show symptoms that by the time you catch them there is already extensive damage.
