What does hail damage look like?
AFTER A HAIL STORM, start by checking the trees and shrubs around your property. If they are stripped of their leaves, there is a good possibility that your roof has hail damage. Before you contact your homeowner’s insurance company you may want to check with a reputable roofing contractor who has been trained by HAAG Engineering, has an insurance adjusting background and is able to actually provide accurate information.
If you have a shingle roof look in the roof gutters and on the ground for large amounts of mineral granules lost from the roof. If you have a flat roof look at the rooftop vents and the condenser fins of your HVAC units. Look at your gutter downspouts and your window screens and the metal frame. Run your hand along the metal surface to feel for any indentations. Also, look at your fences and wood trim. Hail damage can be as simple as damage to the stain or paint. Remember, damage to gutters, fences and screen may fall under your ACV part of your insurance policy. ACV (Actual Cash Value) is what you would pay for a similar item at today’s current cost MINUS depreciation (replacement cost minus depreciation).
Insurance Roof Claim Specialists
One last thing that is important; whether you have a commercial or residential property; if you are on-site during the hail storm, record the storm details: storm duration, hail size, wind direction, if you are able. It is also wise to hire a certified roof inspector to inspect your roof and provide a digital photo roof inspection report BEFORE a hail storm, which is very useful if you have to file a claim.
