Look for Signs of Storm Damage
Not all signs of storm damage are obvious to the naked eye. However, there are a few clear indicators that your home has been damaged by wind, rain, or hail passing through your area.
Loose, Cracked, or Missing Shingles
Asphalt shingles are still the most common residential roofing material in use today. While fairly durable, they can be damaged by high winds or large hail. Missing shingles are a clear sign of storm damage. However, shingles that are merely cracked or jarred loose should also be repaired.
Dings or Dents on Your Home’s Exterior
Whether from hail or debris kicked up by high winds, dings or dents indicate a need for storm damage repair by professional contractors. Look for marks not just on the surface of your roof, but along gutters, your home’s siding, and even exterior features such as a pool deck. Dents here indicate that the storm was powerful enough to cause damage to your roof as well.
Loose Asphalt Granules
Asphalt granules indicate that your home’s first layer of defense against the elements may be compromised. Look for granules around the edge of your home or collected in your gutters, if you have them. While a few granules are normal, a large amount of granules indicates more significant roof damage.
Contact Your Insurance Provider Right Away
While every insurance policy differs, most insurance providers will cover storm damage in some capacity. Regardless of your coverage for certain types of damage, though, almost every insurance company requires that you file a claim within a certain window of time in order to receive payment for any damage to your home.
When a severe storm passes through your area, it’s a good idea to notify your insurance provider immediately. This is especially true if you’ve spotted any of the clear signs of damage to your roof or home exterior noted above. Either way, calling your insurance provider will get the ball rolling and ensure that your claim can be filed within the appropriate window.
