Over the last 20 years, hailstorms have become harder to forecast. In fact, they have been increasing in severity and frequency due to more extreme weather conditions. It’s as if hailstones falling from the sky can happen at any given time. Every year, these weather disturbances result in at least a billion dollars in agricultural and property damage in the U.S.
Woodbridge Home Exteriors, one of the top windows, doors and siding companies in the local area, explain the effects of the unpredictability of hailstorms. We also discuss here how we can help.
It makes sense for affected homeowners to pursue claims immediately after inspecting their homes for hail damage. The challenge here, however, is determining which constitutes as damage. Some are functional, which means the damage diminishes the service life of a home component. Some are cosmetic, which involve discoloration or any changes that don’t necessarily affect the component’s functionality.
Proof of functional damage may allow homeowners to be compensated for such loss. The same can be said for cosmetic damage, although that would depend on the insurance company and on the terms indicated in the policy.
Another challenge presented by the unpredictability of hailstorms is the fact that it can happen in succession. It can be difficult to determine damage from the initial storm against the last two. Factors such as location and intensity are also taken into account in learning about the extent of hail damage.
How We Can Help
Apart from working with your insurance company in claiming for losses as a result of hailstorms, it is important that you restore your home if it suffered considerable damage. Otherwise, you can reinforce your property further by investing in vinyl siding or windows that can withstand the brunt of any type of storm or weather disturbance.
