Hail stones can be golf ball or even baseball sized; and, they fall from about 30,000 feet at 120 MPH. When they hit you, your home, or your business, the damage can be significant.
Typical hail damage includes roof holes, broken windows, shredded panels, and the water damage which follows.
While it does not normally hail, most any big thunderstorm can produce hail. Be sure you take safe steps to mitigate your loss by safely covering holes to prevent further damage. One option to consider is covering broken windows with plastic, a tarp, or wood panels. Dry wet items and place them in a dry area so they do not get wet again.
Take all the reasonable steps you can to document your hail damage by safely photographing and even videotaping the results. Save all your documentation including receipts and inventories of damaged property. Be sure you have pictures of all the damaged property inside the home too. If you are uncertain about the safety of your roof or structure, do not place yourself in harmâ€™s way; instead, hire a contractor or contact a professional Public Adjuster.
