Hail Damage Insurance Claim

Checking For Hail Damage
It’s important to check for and document hail damage as soon as you can after a hailstorm. When it’s safe, you should head outside your property to look for the following common types of damage caused by hail:
- Impact marks – Larger pieces of hail will make large dents and impact marks on the siding of your home, business, or your automobile, if it was not protected from the hail.Having proof of this impact damage is key for substantiating a hail damage claim. One of the best tips is to take photos of your home’s siding and other structural components immediately before a hailstorm, and after the storm has passed to show that the damage.
- Chips – Hail can chip paint, stucco, vinyl siding and other siding materials. Take photos of this damage and collect the chips as evidence to ensure you can prove your hail claim.
- Broken Glass – If it’s windy, hail can fall and be blown into windows, causing them to crack or shatter. Damage is also very common on skylights. Take photos of this damage, if possible.
- Dents – Dents in aluminum siding, metal roofs, and other such materials are common during hail events. Document damage to your home properly and take pictures and video of large dents.
Inspecting Your Roof – Prevent Liability For Costly Repairs
Roofs can be devastated by hail damage, but it can be hard to recognize unless you’re a professional. Hail may damage underlying roofing structures but have a minimal impact on shingles and other roofing materials.
If you fail to recognize the damage caused by hail right away, you may not be able to claim these damages. That’s why you need professional roof inspectors, such as Left Tackle Consulting to examine your roof.
We assess your roof using the latest technology to identify any damage that could be caused by hail. Loose granules and damaged shingles could lead to leaks and water damage.
If you believe that your roof has been damaged by hail, get help immediately and make sure you get the compensation to which you are entitled.
