Hi guys, here is some hail damages FAQs Because when you are looking into repair your home by hail storms damages.
When I look at my roof, I don’t see any hail damage. What’s all the fuss about?
Hail damage can’t be seen very easily. The best thing to do is have your insurance adjuster actually go up on your roof and inspect it for damage. You usually will never see actual holes or indentations. Hail will drastically shorten the life of your roof. Imagine going up on your roof and hitting it a couple thousand times with a hammer. The effect is similar.
How does my insurance company know I had large hail in my neighborhood?
Insurance companies subscribe to different hail reporting and tracking services. These services can track the hail size, exact location it fell, time of day and the date. This helps the insurance companies decide the validity of hail claims. If you had damaging hail, they already know it.
What about my siding?
therefore, you should check your exterior walls closely, preferably when the sun is a little lower in the sky (morning or evening). This will make it easier to see the denting. Because old aluminum siding will show the damage more than wood or vinyl unless the vinyl actually has holes in it.
How do I know I’m dealing with a reputable and experienced company?
“Storm Chasers” will migrate to the different areas that storms damage. After the storm business dries up, they pick up and move to the next storm-damaged area. It is important that you, as a consumer, have a company you can turn to if you have any warranty issues down the road after the job is done. A great way to figure out how long the company has been in business is by checking them out on the Better Business Bureau website in your area or by contacting the state’s board for contractors. Make sure that you ask for referrals. This can help you gauge the service that the company provides.
