Tips for homeowners
Hail Damage is Not Visible From the Ground
Your roof and components need to be inspected by someone with experience & training that can identify the factors involved in hail damage. An experienced roof inspector will be able to survey over 20 different items on your property to determine if hail has damaged your home or property.
Missing Shingles Are Wind Damage, Not Hail Damage
Wind damage is the most common culprit of missing shingles. High winds during a hail storm can often cause this damage. However, hail damage is insidious in nature and may not physically cause roof leaks for years after a hailstorm, making it important to look for more than just missing shingles.
Insurance Companies Will Not Raise Your Rates
Insurance companies can’t raise an individual property owner’s rates due to an “Act of God” claim. This claim is a “no fault” claim because it couldn’t be prevented by you, the homeowner. These claims will not cause rates to go up.
How long do I have to make a claim with my insurance company?
You are expected to file immediately, however, it is common for over 50% of all hail claims to be discovered weeks and months past the storm date. Some states allow 12 months. If you do not file a claim with your insurance company within 12 months, you insurance company will not pay for any repairs beyond that time. So, if your roof starts leaking 1 year after the storm date, you will be responsible for repairs.
