Need Expert Assistance with a Hail Damage Claim in Florida, North Carolina, or Georgia?
Hail causes nearly $1 billion in insurance losses annually in the United States. Pounding hail stones commonly damage the roofs of buildings, houses, and vehicles as well as siding, windows, and landscaping – and more. However, despite the widespread damage, spotting and proving hail damage is challenging.
How to Spot Hail Damage
Did a hailstorm recently pound your home or business with hail stones? Though roof damage is common, hail impacts many other portions of your property including windows, siding, and even sidewalks and driveways. Hail strikes typically appear in: roofing, metal roof appurtenances (vents, flashing, etc.), gutters and downspouts, windows, window screens, skylights, siding, A/C units, fences, and pergolas. Always evaluate your property after any hail event!
Here’s how to determine if your property sustained damage due to hail:
- Start with a spot check of your roof from a safe, easy-to-reach vantage point. Look for signs of damage on the edges of your asphalt shingles or metal roof. If you have asphalt shingles, look (and feel, if possible) for signs of loose gravel.
- Examine other structures for signs of damage. Look for rounded areas with a change in color or texture. For metal components such as gutters or aluminum siding, look for rounded dents.
