Example of Roof Alert notification
Roof Alert – 123 Main Street, Anywhere Texas
On February 24, 2017, hail up to 1.5 inches in diameter affected your property at 123 Main Street, Anywhere Texas.
The hail occurred between 1:08AM CST to 1:12AM CST.
Here is a copy of the Hydrometeor Classification product from the National Weather Service showing hail (Red) directly over the stated property address:
Hydrometeor Classification product – February 24, 2017 1:11AM CST Roof Alert strongly suggests that the rooftop of the property be inspected forpossible damages from this event.
The criteria for Roof Alert ™ is as follows:
- Wind speeds in excess of 58 miles per hour, or sustained wind speeds of 40 miles per hour for more than 1 hour.
- Hail greater than 0.75 inches
- Heavy snow, greater than 6 inches
- Rainfall, greater than 4 inches
Roof Alert ™ does not provide forecast products; only after-the-fact notification to initiate any inspection process. Any commercial company that claims to provide notification prior to a severe weather event can only alert you to imminent dangers with only a few minutes of advance warning. This isn’t enough time to protect large scale structures such as condominiums, shopping malls, large scale commercial buildings and other structures.
Our website includes an array of weather maps and products for the client to use to ensure up-to-the-minute information of impending weather events and situations. We also provide a Daily Weather Newsletter for various parts of the United States that informs our clients of upcoming weather patterns for the next 2 weeks.
Our staff is comprised of operational meteorologists that have provided weather support to a variety of clients including:
- United States Air Force
- United States Army
- United States Navy
- United States Marine Corps
- The White House
- NASA Space Shuttle program
- Large oil companies, shopping centers, condominiums, and dozens of other clients that need site-specific weather information on a 24/7 basis.
It’s not a matter of knowing that severe weather may affect your property, but knowing that when it does strike, you will be notified in a timely manner which allows the initiation of necessary inspections, repairs and possible insurance claims. By using Roof Alert™, you will know exactly when severe weather affected the property, the timing of the severe weather, the magnitude of the weather event and will receive NWS-approved graphics to substantiate our notification.
Did you know that sustained wind speeds of 40 miles per hour or greater (for more than 1 hour) can lead to property damages? This is part of a High Wind Warning from the National Weather Service. Only Roof Alert™ provides this information to clients.
Unlike other similar companies that provide after-the-fact products, Roof Alert™ is pro-active by sending any necessary notifications to you, based upon the package you selected; instead of having to find a company and determine when the date of loss occurred.
Unlike other similar companies, Roof Alert™ provides all supporting evidence, can write after-the-fact evaluations, provide deposition and court room support (when required) and we stand behind our data. Check the “disclaimer” on other similar after-the-fact products to learn what is warrantied and what is not.
Roof Alert uses human meteorologists to download, analyze and interpret weather radar products to reach our conclusions. Other similar companies utilize algorithms (one size fits all) that cannot distinguish the subtle differences in weather patterns that may affect the outcome of a severe weather event.
Because of the association with LRC Services, forensic evaluations after-the-fact can be ordered for any potential disputes with either side of an insurance claim. We can provide reports, deposition and testimony support for either side in a potential insurance dispute. This is another feature that similar companies do not provide.
Remember, the insurance companies need specific information that only Roof Alert™ can provide. When using better information with any potential insurance claim, the entire process runs more smoothly. Insurance companies are in the business to protect your property, but they need accurate and precise information to do so, information that is provided by Roof Alert™.
Don’t be caught looking only for the easy-to-see damages, when the most expensive damages go unseen for weeks, months and years. The insurance companies will gladly work with you for a fast and fair settlement, but it’s up to you to provide the best support and protection for your property.
