Hail is responsible for a big chunk of weather-related roof damage. They can wreak havoc upon many aspects of your home’s exterior, leading to significant repair work. As such, it’s important to know what you should do after a hail storm.
Below are some helpful tips to help you deal with hail storm damage.
Check Your Gutters and Roof
Hail can cause dents and cracks on both your roof and your gutters. The impact can cause shingles to loosen or come off entirely. If you notice noticeable damage, contact your trusted roofing and gutter company immediately.
Contact Your Insurance Provider
Don’t panic. Even if you see damage on your roof, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see money go to repairs. Contact your insurance provider to ascertain if the extent of damage is under coverage. Should you not have insurance coverage, now would be a great time to get one.
Maintain and Reinforce
Even if there isn’t considerable damage, now may also be a good time to have your roof and gutters checked and reinforced. Why wait for them to succumb entirely to constant hail storms when you can augment their strength right away? This way, you can save both the roof and the gutters.
Though hail storms can indeed cause significant damage, you can still repair those dealt with them. You can even prevent future storms from causing significant damage. Remember these tips and your home will stay in top shape.
