When to Report Hail Damage

When to Report Hail DamageThe Colorado storm season often leaves damage in its wake. From Denver hail damage to wind and water damage, property owners have a lot to consider this time of year. If you suspect you have sustained hail damage in a recent storm, we encourage you to take note of today’s post. Timing is of the essence when reporting hail damage.

The Risk of Leaving Denver Hail Damage Unaddressed

Hail damage can wreak havoc on your property. Not only can hail damage to your roof expose asphalt shingles and shorten its overall lifespan, but it can compromise the integrity for your entire home. If left unaddressed, hail damage can leave your home exposed to the elements. Leaks caused by major hail damage can allow water to seep in and cause irreversible damage to your home’s structure as well as electrical wiring, drywall and insulation. What begins as a small hail damage issue can snowball into mold or mildew damage and even create fire hazards. When identified and fixed early, Denver hail damage can oftentimes be repaired very cost effectively. If your home was recently in a hail storm, complete your due diligence and contain the issue early!

Hail Damage Insurance Claims: Time Will Run Out

Another key reason to report hail damage quickly is insurance claim eligibility. No matter your insurance provider or coverage, there is a predetermined period of time in which you can make a claim for hail damage. While it can vary widely from one policy to another, it’s important to keep in mind that if you need to file an insurance claim, you are dealing with a finite amount of time. Because you may not realize the extent of the hail damage your roof has sustained for some time, it’s critical to have a professional inspection after a hail storm.

What may initially appear to be small scuffs in your asphalt shingles can compound into a major problem in the coming months or years. A trained professional can help you determine if what seems like a small problem today has the potential to drastically reduce the lifespan of your roof. If together you determine that your seemingly minor damage has the potential to be a major issue down the road, it might be time to file an insurance claim. If, however, the damage is contained and relatively small, a hail damage roof repair, without involving your insurance provider, might be a better idea.
