SOME COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT INSURANCE CLAIMS AFTER A SEVERE HAIL STORM:

• Filing a claim following a hail storm could cancel my insurance.

NOT TRUE: Insurance companies would rarely cancel coverage following a claim for hail damage, as it is considered an “Act of God.”

• Filing a claim will raise my insurance rates.

Insurance companies cannot single out homeowners for a rate increase following a storm-related event.

However, if there is a large number of claims coming from a particular area, insurance companies most often will increase rates in the affected zip codes.

Regardless of whether a homeowner files a claim after a storm-related event, increases impact all property owners in the zip code.

• My insurance company would prefer that I wait to file a claim until my roof starts leaking.

NOT TRUE: Nearly all insurance companies will tell you to have your roof checked by a licensed contractor who is familiar with hail damage, and submit a claim if necessary. Hail damage can lead to leaks which in turn can damage the interior which would incur more costs in addition to the roof.

Best advice! If you know that there was significant hail in your area, be proactive. Call Peet Roofing, a licensed roofing contractor, that specializes in storm damages with thousands of satisfied clients in central Florida.

Hail damage can cause immediate damage after a storm, but most of the time it causes slow damage over time that homeowners do not notice until it is too late.

Hail impacts asphalt shingles, causing granular loss from the face of the shingle. This exposes the matting underneath, which now makes the shingle susceptible to damage from the suns rays.

Over time, this causes the shingle to dry and crack, which can turn into a leak.

That is why it is important for homeowners to get their roof inspected after most major hail storms.

SOME COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS AFTER A HAIL STORM:

• I don’t see any damage, I think my roof is okay.

NOT TRUE: To the untrained eye hail damage is not detectable, only trained professionals can truly tell you if your roof is damaged.

• My roof is not leaking, so it must be fine.

NOT TRUE: Hail damage is many times very insidious: Your roof may not leak for months after a hail storm, however, the damage has already been done, and your roof is being exposed at an accelerated rate.

• My roof is too old, my insurance company will not cover a replacement if necessary.

NOT TRUE: Almost all insurance companies pay for full replacement on a damaged roof regardless of the age.

• If I file a claim my insurance company will raise my rates or worse yet, cancel my insurance.

NOT TRUE: Insurance companies do not single homeowners out and raise their rates after weather-related damages. Insurance companies can and do look at damages paid out over specific areas and will raise rates on entire zip codes.

More than likely the recent hail storm will impact rates somewhat in the area. However not filing a claim based on the assumption it will keep your rates lower is not true. A new roof, in fact, can and most likely will lower your insurance premium.

Also because hail storms are such a rare event in Florida, insurance companies are not inclined to cancel coverages as it is considered an “Act of God.”

Excessive granules coming off of the roof after a rain. Granules on driveways, accumulating near downspouts, etc. Dents on soft metals including downspouts, gutters, vents, etc.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW AFTER A HAIL STORM

All roofs are not created equal: Tile roofs rarely are damaged to the point of requiring replacement, whereas shingled roofs are much more likely to incur damage, especially if the roofs are a few years old.

Telltale signs of hail damage: Excessive granules coming off of the roof after a rain. Granules on driveways, accumulating near downspouts, etc. Dents on soft metals including downspouts, gutters, vents, etc.

Always have someone inspect your roof that is specifically trained in hail damage: Not everyone including many roof contractors understands hail damage.
