Common Myths About Hail Damage
Myth: I’ve checked my roof and don’t see any problems.
Fact: Your roof must be inspected by a trained storm damage contractor with experience in assessing hail damage. Without this training it can sometimes be very difficult to spot hail damage.
Myth: My insurance company will likely cancel my policy if I file a hail damage claim.
Fact: Many states prohibit an insurance company from cancelling your policy due to a severe weather event. It’s best to check your policy to know for sure whether this is the case.
Myth: My roof is new so it’s covered by the warranty from the roofing company or manufacturer.
Fact: Most manufacturers, roofing companies and builders specifically name hail damage as exclusion to their warranties. New roofs can actually be more susceptible to hail damage because they haven’t had as long to cure after installation.
