If a hailstorm has recently hit your area and potentially caused damage to your property, it is important to know what steps to take in order to prevent further damage.

Step 1: Inspect the Exterior of Your Property

Once the storm has passed and it is safe to go outside, look for hailstones and shingle granules in your backyard. Do not forget to check the condition of the gutters. Any dents, cracks and loose sections should all be noted. Continue the inspection and see if there is any damage to the siding as well. Take photos of all the damage as part of your documentation, which will come in handy when you file for a claim later on.

Step 2: Call a Professional Roofing Contractor

If during the brief inspection you find that your roof has sustained significant damage — such as excessive granule loss, cracked shingles or large-sized pelts — contact a local roofing contractor right away. Make sure you hire someone who is licensed and certified to detect evidence of storm damage. In most cases, hail damage is not always noticeable to the untrained eye. But a roofer who has experience in storm damage restoration will be able to catch these signs and recommend long-term solutions, from simple repairs to complete replacements.

Step 3: Contact Your Insurance Company

After having a qualified roofer inspect your roof, contact your insurance provider and inform them about the hail damage. Your insurance company will send someone to determine the extent of the damage and then send an estimate of the repair costs. Time is of the essence when it comes to filing a roof claim. Do not let your roof sit with damage for a long time.
