I Think My Home Has Hail Damage. What Should I Do?

Hail is one of nature’s most destructive elements. In 2021, there were 3,763 significant hailstorms, impacting more than 6.8 million homes in the U.S[1]. Hail can range from pea-sized to softball sized and is most damaging when it is one inch or more in diameter. Hail can wreak havoc with your roof, gutters, siding, windows, air conditioners and anything outside on your property. Following are some tips from the experts at Get Paid For Your Claim about hail damage:

  • Check for dents on your outdoor property. This could include gutters, downspouts, window sills, siding, sheds, etc. This is one of the key signs of hail damage. The dents are often easiest to see in metal. The dents could be tiny or very large, all depending on the size of the hail that fell. There could also be chipped paint on your deck, railings, or home.
  • It’s best to call a professional to examine your roof. Roof damage from hail is often subtle and hard for a lay person to notice. Some of the indications of hail damage include:
    • For asphalt shingles, there will be missing granules on the surface of your shingles. This indicates that the shingles have been hit with a significant amount of force and the waterproofing ability of the shingle has been compromised. There could also be cracked or broken shingles.
    • For clay shingles, there will be cracks, which indicate that the shingles have been damaged and can no longer properly protect your home.
  • You and the professional who examines your roof should take photos of any damage for your insurance company.
  • If you find any damage to your roof or home that could allow water to seep in, immediately tarp or board up the area to prevent additional damage. Don’t permanently fix it until the insurance company has inspected it and given you the ok to repair or replace it.
  • Call Get Paid For Your Claim, one of Florida’s leading public adjusters, to file your claim with the insurance company and manage your entire claims process for you.
