Dealing With Hail Storm Damage on Your Home

Jun 26, 2019 | Home Improvement

Climate change has had some notable effects, particularly in the severity and frequency of some weather conditions. Hail storms, in particular, have been growing more and more unpredictable in the past 20 years, something that concerns both homeowners and roofing contractor companies alike.

Dealing With Hail Storm Damage on Your Home

While there’s nothing you can do to stop hail from happening, there are a few extra steps you can take to minimize its impact on your home. Let our specialists from Turner Home Improvement Contractors, LLC show you the best ways to prepare your roof against hail storms.

Homeowners Insurance

As hail storms become less predictable, the best way to keep your home covered is with a comprehensive homeowners insurance. Hail causes over $1-billion worth of damage to homes every year, knocking shingles off their beds, denting or cracking siding boards, and breaking replacement window frames and glazing. There’s nothing worse than needing a storm restoration service without any insurance to cover the expenses.

Hail-Proof Materials

As always, necessity is the mother of invention and the growing demand for hail-proof construction materials have brought about UL-certified roofing and siding systems that can withstand high impact forces from hailstones. Choosing these materials can help your home survive an unexpected storm with very little damage. Some insurance companies will even offer concessions and lower premiums to homes that use these types of materials. Ask your contractor about hail-proof options the next time you’re due for a replacement.
