Storm Damage and Insurance
“Everything’s bigger in Texas.” While this famous saying represents the positives people feel about life in Texas, it aptly describes the Lone Star State’s hailstorms as well. As we approach one year since Mother Nature ravaged Texas with golf ball to softball sized hailstones in March and April, homeowners scramble to finalize insurance claims and prepare for this year’s upcoming violent thunderstorms.
What Does Hailstorm Damage Look Like?
A crucial thing to understand about hail damage is that it is not always apparent and will manifest in different ways depending on what type of roof material is present. Left undiscovered and unmitigated, damage from hail will lead to more extensive and costlier repairs, such as rupturing of the reinforcing mat or loss of granules, which will both compromise the entire roofing structure. It is always important to have a professional inspect your roof if you suspect damage following a storm.
Have you filed your insurance claim?
To Ensure all of the damage to your home gets repaired homeowners should file an insurance claim to report hail damage. Dallas-Fort Worth area residents are still able to submit their claims for last year’s hailstorms, but the window is rapidly closing. Whether or not you have filed your initial claim, it is in your best interest to consult with a company specializing in hail damage and the insurance claims process to ensure you will receive the maximum compensation for your property damage. If you have yet to file your claim, guarantee it’s done diligently the first time by contracting a team who specializes in this work.
