The steps we take to filing an insurance claim for hail damage

Hail is inevitable in Chicagoland, and unfortunately it can cause damage to your roof’s structure. When hail strikes your home, it’s important to get a roofing professional out immediately to inspect for damage. Fixing your roof can sound like a big, expensive task, but no worries. If hail has caused damage we can help you file a hail damage roof insurance claim to cover the costs. 

Let’s first talk about how hail can actually damage your roofing system. 

The damage caused by a hail storm can vary, and typically depends on the strength of the storm, amount of hail and size. 

  • Wind direction and strength is important to note because wind typically controls the angle and how hard the hail hits your roof. 
  • Hail can vary from coin sizes all the way to the size of a baseball. Of course, the larger the hail the more damage it can cause. 
  • Amount of hail is also important. More hail increases the changes of roof damage. 

So what does hail damage look like?

There are different signs of roof damage caused by hail and they typically depend on the type of roofing material you have. 

  • Missing shingle granules 
  • Dents in roofing structure
  • A split in wood shingles
  • Random spots of damage

Sometimes everyday wear and tear from age or other harsh weather conditions can be mistaken for hail damage. It’s important to have a trained storm damage roofing specialist come out to inspect your roof to make sure all the damage is accounted for.
