Damage from a hailstorm can leave dents in your roof, siding, and gutters, which can turn into dents in your wallet if you don’t get it fixed soon after the storm has passed. The best way to protect your home is to get a professional hail damage inspection.
The first thing to know? Time is not on your side and below are the top three things you should do immediately after a hailstorm.
1. Inspect Your Home For Signs Of Hail Damage
Hail damage can be hard to spot, especially if you don’t know what to look for! One of the easiest ways to tell if your roof has hail damage is to check your car for dents and dings. If your vehicle has damage, your roof likely also has damage, and you should get a professional inspection asap!
If you were lucky enough to have your car parked in your garage during the storm, you’d need to check some additional areas around your home to spot damage – like your gutters and siding.
2. Get A Professional Hail Damage Inspection
If you see signs of hail damage, you need to call for a professional roof inspection asap.
Hail damage gets worse over time, and that means the longer you wait, the higher the repair bills will be.
3. Review Your Insurance Policy
If you do have hail damage, the good news is that most insurance policies cover the repairs needed. However, every insurance policy is different, so you’ll want to make sure you review yours and keep the information handy in case you must file a hail damage claim.
Pro Tip: One important thing to find out is if your insurance company has time limitations for filing a hail damage claim. Click here to get more tips on how hail damage claims work and why you shouldn’t be afraid to make one.
