Hail Damage SERVICE
Hail can fall at an amazing and fast rate of speed, doing much damage to your property. The velocity alone can cause large sizes of holes in the shingles. It is important to take care of this as soon as possible to avoid even more damage inside your property on the walls and ceilings. AAA Restoration & Construction Services are trained in providing the highest level of Hail Damage Service.
ROOF HAIL DAMAGE
There are actually multiple ways that hail can cause damage to your property. It is important to know these different causes so that you can understand the problem. Wind direction and speeds can make a big difference when it comes to hail damage. Changing winds may cause certain areas of your roof to receive severe hail damage while others remain unharmed. The density and size of the hailstones is the thing most people think of first when they think of varying degrees of hail damage. Hail varies in size from smaller than a pea to larger than a softball.
Don’t wait for a leak
Some homeowners mistakenly think that their roof is fine after a hail storm because they don’t have any roof leaks. That’s not true: you can still file an insurance claim on a damaged roof without a leak. Don’t wait for a leak to appear before you file a claim. Most roof hail damage insurance claims do not involve leaking roofs. If you do have a roof leak, do what you can to mitigate the loss. Place a tarp over the leaking area to prevent further water damage for example.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A HAILSTORM
Note storm info
Note the date and exact time of the storm, including when you believe hail damage to your property occurred.
Take photos of your yard, home, and property after the storm, making sure to focus on areas of damage. The more photos you take, the better.
obvious signs of damage
Look for obvious signs of damage on your roof, like missing or torn shingles. Binoculars can be a useful tool for an initial look.
Grab your tape measure (or some other measurable object, like a golf ball) and place it next to hailstones on the ground, then take pictures.
