Hail Damage Roof Facts
- Hail regardless of size can damage your roofing shingles. When hail is accompanied by strong wind the damage from small hail can be equal to or greater than the damage from a much larger hail.
- Hail Damage is not visible from the ground. In order to properly determine if hail damage exists a trained person must physically get onto a roof and inspect for damage.
- When our inspectors locate hail damage they document the damage by taking several photographs of the damaged area.
- It is important to have your roof inspected by a contractor before you contact your insurance company.
- The contractor you select should be licensed and insured.
- The roofing contractor you choose to help you with your roof inspection should have knowledge and experience in dealing with insurance claims.
- Once a Ryson Roofing inspector inspects your roof they will give you their professional opinion on whether to file a claim or not.
- If you file a claim, your insurance claim adjuster will call you to set up an appointment for inspection.
- Once you have set an appointment with your insurance claim adjuster make sure to let your contractor know when the meeting is so that the contractor can meet with the adjuster to explain the damage found.
- Your adjuster will either approve or deny your claim. Filing a claim comes at NO COST to you. Your insurance premium will not be raised, even if damage is found. This is because hail and wind damage are considered Acts of Nature, and therefore come from no fault of your own.
