Over the last 20 years, hailstorms have become harder to forecast. They have increased in severity and frequency due to more extreme weather conditions. It’s as if hailstones falling from the sky can happen at anytime. Every year, these weather disturbances result in at least a billion dollars in agricultural and property damage in the U.S.
Woodbridge Home Solutions, 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 damage. Some are functional, meaning the damage diminishes a home component’s service life. Some are cosmetic, which involve discoloration or 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 the terms indicated in the policy.
Another challenge presented by the unpredictability of hailstorms is that they 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 to claim losses due to hailstorms, you must 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 storm or weather disturbance.
