Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Storm Damage?
Some homeowners insurance policies cover storm damage caused by certain elements, like wind, hail, or lightning. You may not be able to file a storm damage insurance claim that is caused by earthquakes or floods as these events are not usually covered. Be sure to read your homeowner’s insurance policy to understand if your storm damage repair is covered. With J-Tech, once we’ve started working on your storm damage restoration, we do our best to make the experience as easy and effortless as possible.
Roof Storm Damage
Residential roof damage from a storm is one of the most important things to repair, to maintain the integrity of your roof and ensure there are no leaks or other issues that could cause further problems. If the issues are severe enough, you may be in need of a complete storm damage roof replacement.
A hail storm roof damage is another common event that often needs repair and restoration. Ice from a hail storm can cause ding and dents in your roof that are unsightly at best, and culprits to further roof issues at worst.

Metal siding can suffer dings and dents from hail damage and other impacts. J-Tech is familiar with these kinds of siding damage and more, including a siding storm damage inspection from your insurance company. Contact us for a free quote on siding repair!
Gutter Storm Damage
Gutters are not impervious to storm damage. Actually, there are some telltale signs to look out for to know if your gutter system has suffered damage after a storm. Gutter troughs can become clogged and come loose from the added weight. Clogged gutters can also cause leaking. If the winds are strong the gutters can become twisted and prevent your gutter system from working properly. Call J-Tech to help you through a gutter storm damage inspection by your insurance company so that we can repair your gutters!
Storm Damage to Door Hangers
Doors that are not secured properly during a storm can come loose and be shaken violently by the wind. This can scuff and mark up your doors and cause storm damage to your door hangers. Luckily we can help. Contact J-Tech to learn how we can repair storm damage to your doors.
Window Storm Damage
The main problem with storms and windows is high winds and high speed implants can break or shatter your windows and even damage your window frames. Hail storms are notorious for breaking windows. If you get any window storm damage, call J-Tech to help you repair and replace your windows and get new window frames installed.
Solar Storm Damage
SOLAR STORM DAMAGE
Solar panels were built with unfavorable weather conditions in mind and are actually quite resistant to storm damage and high winds. Something to keep in mind is that if a storm causes the power grid to go down, then solar panels will not be able to provide power even if they were not damaged. As of 2022, when paired with a control switch, our micro-inverters are able to bypass the grid when the power is out! For repair and replacement of solar panels, contact J-Tech Solar!
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG SHOULD WE WAIT AFTER A STORM TO CONTACT J-TECH?
If necessary, you should start by contacting an inspector and your insurance company to get a full picture of the damage. Afterwards, you can contact our team at J-Tech and we’ll be happy to work with your insurance agency to ensure that everything gets repaired and you can sleep safely in your walls.
CAN HAIL STORMS DAMAGE SOLAR PANELS?
Solar panels are made with storm resistance in mind, as they are designed to spend their entire life cycle on a roof. Many solar panels are designed to withstand hail due to the tempered glass covering. However, if the storm is severe enough, nothing is 100% resistant to hail damage. Keep in mind that solar panels may not provide power after a storm, even if they are undamaged. This is likely due to a grid-wide power outage, and not because of your panels.
HOW CAN I PREVENT STORM DAMAGE?
Some severe storms can be quite intense and unpredictable, but it’s important to be prepared. You can be proactive by repairing any missing and damaged shingles, which will prevent further subsequent damage. It’s also important to clean your gutters to ensure water flows away from your house during a downpour. Finally, make sure that all doors and windows are properly sealed, ensuring that water doesn’t seep in and cause flooding. If anything does happen, make sure to contact J-Tech for storm damage repair.
