How to prevent insurance rate spikes due to hail damage

hail 2Severe weather causes billions of dollars in damage to homes each year.  States like Texas and Colorado get hit so often homeowners now face higher insurance rates and repair costs, especially when it comes to roofing.  Traditional roof materials are designed to last between 15-25 years. But in hail prone states, roofs are having to be replaced as often as every 5 years!

New roofs are expensive. Even if your homeowner’s insurance covers the cost of storm damage, high deductibles can quickly eat into your savings account. Insurance companies are feeling the cost of hailstorms too. In parts of Colorado and Texas homeowners are getting told to switch to a hail resistant shingle or get dropped from coverage. 

Scary, right?! 

But there’s good news for homeowners. You don't have to settle with repeat claims, skyrocketing insurance premiums, or expensive repairs.  Switching to a stone coated steel roof is the easiest way to prevent all of those scenarios. What’s even better, a stone coated steel roof from Tilcor Roofing can actually save you money. Learn how by reading the benefits below - #3 may surprise you!
