The Truth Behind Hail Damage
Hail can leave dark spots or bruises on your roof that are actually areas where the roofing granules can be knocked away, or you may even find that some shingles are cracked or knocked completely off the roof. These weak areas can eventually lead to roof leaks, so it is important to repair the damage as soon as possible. Siding and windows can also be damaged by hail. Many of these materials may be covered by manufacturer’s’ warranty, but installation must normally be completed by a licensed contractor or the warranty can be voided.
The good news is that your homeowner’s insurance may cover repairs for hail damage. Duffy’s licensed insurance adjuster on staff will file all the necessary paperwork for your insurance claim. Many insurance policies limit the amount of time you have to file these claims, so if you suspect hail damage after a storm, contact Duffy for a roof inspection so that insurance claims can be filed in a timely manner.
