Hail causes severe damage to roofs, gutters, soffit, siding and more. It is necessary that when hail has been located in your area and you have damage to your dwelling, that you report it immediately.
The Risk of Ignoring Hail Damage
Not only can hail damage to your roof expose asphalt shingles and disrupt tiles, but it can shorten its overall lifespan. If left ignored, hail damage can leave your home exposed to wind, rain, snow and more. Leaks caused by major hail damage can allow water to seep in and cause damage to your home’s structure as well as electrical wiring, drywall and insulation. What begins as a small hail damage issue can grow quickly into mold or mildew damage and even create fire hazards. When identified and fixed early, hail damage can oftentimes be repaired very cost effectively.
Hail Damage Insurance Claims: Time Will Run Out
Another key reason to report hail damage quickly is your insurance claim timeframe. No matter your insurance provider or coverage, there is a period of time in which you can make a claim for hail damage. Most of the time, hail damage must be reported within a year to be eligible for Insurance to cover the damage. Because you may not realize the extent of the hail damage your roof has sustained for some time, it’s critical to have a professional inspection after a hail storm.
