Wind or Hail Damage

Hail damage

Hail causes significant damage to our homes, cars and landscaping. Hail is made of ice and dirt, which, in combination with high winds slams hail into our homes with forces up to 110 mph wreaking havoc on our roofing, siding and windows.

Hail is irregularly shaped pellets of ice too heavy for the wind and clouds. Hail size ranges from ¼” to grapefruit size and has the capability to leave holes in the protective covering of your roof which is the granular surface. It is said that hail, marble-size or larger is capable of causing damage. Asphalt shingles can lose granules during a hail storm, leading to premature deterioration. Hail damage to roofs often goes unnoticed until further structural damage is seen, such as leaks or cracks.

Preventing a storm is impossible. The best thing you can do after a storm is have your roof inspected by a licensed contractor.

Wind/Hail Damage

Wind Damage

Asphalt shingles are manufactured with a seal tab. During high winds, the seal tab may break. As a result of the broken seal tab the roof may sustain displaced shingles, lifted seal tabs and damage to the roof caused by flying debris. When this seal breaks or the shingles are damaged; this opens your home to the elements of rain which can lead to leaks that will filter into your home damaging the interior structures.

Frequently asked questions:

What is my cost?

As long as the insurance company’s guidelines are followed, the insurance company will cover up to their settlement agreement based on the invoice provided by the contractor. If you choose “the lowest bidder” who provides standard work, the insurance company will pay the lowest amount possible and pay for that lowest bid. If you choose a bidder who provides quality work who is providing the best quality materials with up-to-date roof accessories to protect your home, the insurance company will pay the complete bill as long as it does not exceed the adjuster’s estimate. Bottom line, whether you go with the lowest bidder or the quality bidder who will provide the all the latest accessories, your cost will be your deductible.

Will filing my claim affect my insurance premiums?

No. The majority of states have made it illegal for insurance companies to raise premiums following a single claim resulting from an “Act of God” or unavoidable events caused solely by nature.
