There’s no sure way of telling how much damage your roof will incur during a hailstorm. So, as a general rule of thumb, you should have your roof inspected by experts to get a full report on your roof’s current condition. Fortunately, in case of hail damage, you can file a claim with your insurance company so that they can cover the repair expenses.
Here are three essential tips that’ll help you deal with hail damage.
Review Your Insurance Policy
Bring out your insurance policy, and go over the details to refresh your memory about the terms and conditions. By doing this prior to filing a claim, you can have a good idea of what to expect from the entire process as well as the benefits that you’ll get.
Get in Touch With Your Contractor and Insurance Company
Before you can start siding repair, roof replacement or other jobs that would fix hail damage, make sure to contact your insurance company or agent. Notify the company that your home has been affected by the storm, and ask the agent about the next steps. It would also be great if you could find a trustworthy contractor to assist you in filing an insurance claim.
Document the Damage
Take several photos and videos that clearly show the extent of damage. It would also help if you could take pictures of the hailstones. Use a measuring tape or a golf ball so that the size of the hailstones can be determined.
