Hailstorms are frequent occurrences across Florida. Most hailstorms occur during either the spring or fall months and are localized events that can cause extensive property damage. Hailstones measuring approximately 1.5 inches in diameter can cause significant property damage to cars, windows and siding, while hailstones reaching three inches in diameter or more can cause major roof damage. In the United States damage from hail approaches $1 billion dollars each year.
In most cases it can be difficult to determine if your roof has been damaged by hail after a storm. If you feel your roof has sustained damage, it’s best to have your roof physically inspected by a professional who has the training and experience necessary to determine the extent of damage. It’s important to remember it is your responsibility to mitigate damages in the event of a loss. Roof hail damage left unaddressed will create bigger problems down the road.
