The professionals at Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters offer insurance claim solutions for policy holders with property damage due to hail storms and other causes.
When a hail storm strikes, it is important to have the entire building checked for this type of damage that if left unchecked, could lead to other issues such as leaking roofs, water damage and eventual mold contamination.
This spring has already witnessed severe storms that have caused widespread flooding, tornadoes and even a tropical storm. A component of many of these powerful weather systems is the presence of hail that can cause property damage across a wide area.
Hail is possible in most thunderstorms. It can have a diameter of anywhere from 5 millimeters to as large as 15 centimeters. These exceptionally large hailstones can weigh over 1 pound. Because hail drops from thousands of feet above, even a storm with small hail can do considerable damage to a home or business. In fact, some reports indicate that hail damage causes in excess of $1 billion in damages each year in the United States alone.
Over the past several years, the number of insurance claims due to hail damage has been on the increase. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NCIB), these claims increased 84% from 2010 through 2012 with over 850,000+ claims in 2012.
“While hail damage can be quite evident, as is the case when hail breaks windows on a building, other times in may go unnoticed for some time,” said Douglas Waldie, President of Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters, LLC. “This may be the case when damage is primarily confined to a rooftop or other area that is out of sight.
