Part of living in Calgary includes being prepared for every homeowners fear: the inevitable hail storm. It seems that every year these storms (wind, hail and the like) are becoming more and more prevalent, which is really unfortunate because there is no way to protect your home from what Mother Nature decides to throw your way. Determining whether your home has suffered damage from a hailstorm and is in need of roof repair may be a little more difficult if you don’t know what you are looking for.
Hail damage can include bruising, denting, cracking and visible holes on your roof, siding, fascia, eaves trough or windows. One or two dings on your roof or a few dents in your fascia isn’t too much to worry about, but any more serious damage could harm the structure of you home. Hail damage can lead to leaks and eventually water damage, and the possibilities are endless from there. If you have substantial hail damage on your roof or siding/exterior of your home: the next step is find out the extent of the damage.
What you may not know is that insurance guidelines have changed significantly with respect to claiming hail damage. Gone are the days of Calgarians “waiting for the next hail storm” to update the look of their house by processing a claim for a new roof or new siding. Many policy holder’s deductibles have gone up (when claiming hail damage), and in most cases, the dollar amount of what will be covered to replace the damage has gone down.
It’s important to educate yourself on the details of your home owner’s insurance policy regarding claims of this nature. You need to eliminate any surprises should you have to make a claim for damage, so that when the next storm hits the process will be less stressful.
Insurance companies will require the date of the storm in order to process a claim, so it is wise to check the perimeter of your home after any hail or wind storm. This way, you can know if you have damage, and you will be confident in the reporting date. Should you have or suspect hail damage, let your insurance company know ASAP to see if you qualify for a replacement.
Insurance adjusters will then require the opinion of a professional third-party roofing (or siding) contractor before they will consent to the work being done. What you need to know is that you can choose which company completes the repairs. You are not obligated to use the company that is provided by your insurance company.
