Hail Storm Info & How to Address Roof Hail Damage
Hail storms in Maryland, according to the University of Maryland's State Climatology Office, happen only about 10 to 15 times a year, but just once is enough to cause a lot of damage. Hail season is usually between April and August with the peak being in July. There are an average of 5 hailstorms a month in July state-wide.
Did you know it only takes a 1"-sized hailstone to cause significant damage to an asphalt shingle roof? And roofs with more than one layer can be damaged by even smaller hailstones - like the diameter of a penny - because they have softer sublayer support. Often times the damage remains unseen, beneath the surface of the roof, and leads to premature aging of the shingles. Manufacturer warranties rarely ever include coverage for hail damage, so homeowners have to file an insurance claim to get their roofs repaired. The insurance claims process for roof damage is complicated and tricky, and we can help you like we helped the homeowners below get a new roof replacement approved by insurance.
When hailstorms happen, homeowners should get a free roof inspection from your local roofing contractor to identify any damage that your insurance needs to know about. From obvious visual problems like fractures and indentations of your roof's asphalt shingles, to less-apparent "latent" hail damage like granule loss and loosening of the self-seal strip - we take the time to discover and document all damage. In order for your roof's hail damage to be eligible for full-coverage repair or replacement it must be documented and reported correctly. That last part is crucially important so learn more about how we handle this process below.
Documenting & Reporting
We know what to look for when it comes to hail damage on a roof and, more importantly, we know how to report it to your insurance company. Appropriate cataloguing of hail damage in accordance with insurance policy standards makes it more likely that your roof repair or replacement will get approved. Depending on the extent and severity of the hail damage, we get new roof replacements approved and paid for by insurance because our public adjusters know how to handle the claim responsibly and thoroughly.
