Hailstorms are some of the most severe weather phenomena that may cause various levels of roof damage, depending on the size and density of the hail stones, as well as the intensity and speed of the wind.
Types of roof damage happening during a hailstorm include split, broken or missing shingles, dents, missing granulation, as well as clogged or broken drainage system.
There is little to do about your roof if you want to be prepared for such an event, other than installing impact resistant shingles, if you live in an area with frequent hailstorms. The most important thing is to know how to react promptly after a hailstorm damages your roof.
Do not panic and be proactive!
First, take the necessary measures to minimize the damage, if there is water in the house and then start to evaluate the roof damage. Observe what happened, take pictures, videos and write down the damaged materials you notice and their location. A Junction City roofing contractor can provide a repair estimate; make sure you get the estimate in writing. All these will be very useful when you take the next step and make the insurance claim.
Call your insurance company and, once a representative comes and calculate the coverage you are allowed to receive, you can start planning the repair process.
