One of the services we offer here at JLM Remodeling is Hail Damage Assessment. The damage done by hail can vary greatly. There are a few factors to consider such as wind speed and direction, size and density of hail and the type of materials you have on your home. it is completely essential to assess the damage as soon as it is first noticed.
Check for holes, marks, cracks, or granules that have gone missing from the asphalt. You shouldn't ignore any noticeable damages because an insurance adjuster's job is to get you fairly compensated for the damage to your house.
Let us take you through the different types of damage caused by hail so you can clearly identify any marks or blemishes.
Latent damage basically means that there is damage that has been done but it remains invisible to the naked eye such as structural damage or cracks beneath the surface. Because it isn't visible, it is often long-lasting and if it goes untreated, can cause real trouble down the road.
To recognize latent damage, be sure to check your property and nearby properties to see if the foliage has been stripped off nearby plants. If the foliage has been stripped there is a greater chance that damage has been done to your home as well. You should have a professional come to assess the damage to your home.
Severe damage is much more easily identifiable than lament damage. Anything from cracked or broken shingles to gaping holes in the top of your roof can create a problem. The first call you should make is to your insurance company so that they can send out an adjuster to assess the damage. Then you call JLM Remodeling to repair any hail damage done to your home.
