A hail storm can cause significant damage to your home. Hail can affect your roof, siding, gutters, doors and windows. Here are the important steps you need to take when addressing hail storm damage.
As soon the bad weather passes, search for damage and document it. Take note of the date, the damage and which areas need attention. Take photos to show your insurance inspector and your contractor later on. Damage assessment will help you understand and prepare for the necessary repairs. You should also use this time to clean up debris or broken glass around your home to avoid accidents.
Focus on the Emergency Repairs After
Call the experts when you spot damage like holes or major dents on your roof. This way, you can prevent further damage from happening. You can temporarily cover broken windows while waiting for windows replacement. These repairs are necessary to keep your home protected even while waiting for your insurance claims to come through.
Wait for Insurance Inspection
If the damage doesn’t require immediate attention, wait for the experts to take a look at it. This way, they can draft written reports to strengthen your insurance claims. Trained eyes are better at spotting problem areas you might miss.
