Hail season can be a nightmare for homeowners. Beyond hail being a physical threat to your person and animals, hail can damage roofs, break windows, and damage vinyl siding. If you experience hail damage, knowing what to do after the storm will help you restore your home.
Contact Your Home Insurance Company Immediately
In many cases, your home insurance company covers damage to your home, including damage from hail swaths that leave your home battered. Once you file a claim, your insurance company will come out and estimate the damage. They will put you in contact with one of their preferred contractors to ensure that your home is repaired.
Don’t simply assume contractors who work with your insurance company are the best option. You can research contracting companies, and if you determine you aren’t comfortable with a company doing the work, you can hire another company. Look for important signs that the contractor can do the work, including online reviews and testimonials from other local residents.
