When you submit a claim, you have to deal with a very experienced insurance company adjuster who is thoroughly trained in all aspects of minimizing your damage. Keep in mind that it is the homeowners responsibility to point out the damage. It is not the insurance company's job. Company adjusters minimize your damage by encouraging cost saving methods. Never forget, that insurance companies are a business and they are out to protect their bottom line regardless of how catchy or funny their commercials are. YOU need someone on YOUR side to get you through this process!
What is the significance of hail damage and why should I worry about fixing it?
Hail of a certain size that impacts roofing material actually voids the manufacturer's warranty. Asphalt or composition shingles lose the protective surface granulation and the mat maybe cracked or broken underneath. Even if the mat is not cracked or broken at the present time, it is however now exposed and soft from the hail hit. This is what is known as "hail bruising" and after time goes by, this bruise, which may seem insignificant and rather unnoticeable now, will start to weather. The sunlight will now be beating down on the unprotected matting and will start to crack after time. Structural damage can occur when moisture accumulates. Underneath the shingles, the wooden decking and structure can decompose, and when it does, it may lead to MAJOR construction expenses and even mold. THIS IS THE REASON WHY YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE IS RESPONSIBLE TO COVER IT NOW! LOOK AT THIS CLOSE UP VIEW OF A HAIL BRUISE....
