Hidden Roof Damage Can Give You The Heebie-Jeebies
Your roof is your home’s primary defense against the elements. When hail damages a roof, it weakens its ability to protect your home from water, wind, snow, etc. If left unrepaired, hail damage can lead to more costly problems like roof leaks, therefore, insurance companies understand how important a fully functional roofing system is, which why hail storm damage is covered by most policies.
Waiting to get a proper inspection after a storm is never a good idea. Most insurance companies believe it is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain their homes and take steps to prevent leaks. Therefore, if you wait until your roof is leaking to make a claim, you could be footing the bill for all the major repairs.
