Damage can be caused by a hail storm to your house, roof or the car. In order to assess the extent of damaged you’ve sustained, it is important to conduct a hail damage inspection. Read on to find out what to expect in the hail damage inspection.
As soon as they get to your residence, the initial step an inspector takes is go through your home along with you. Inspectors will look over the house elevation by elevation just the way an insurance professional would.
When walking through your house, they’ll also look for additional hail damage. The inspectors may also look whether there is damage to structures outside like decks, fences or other features.
After a thorough inspection of the exterior, an inspector will climb up to your roof. To determine the extent of hail destruction, the inspector should make a mark on a square with a size of 10 feet x 10 feet. In general you will find any more than 10 hail blasts inside a 10-foot-by-10-foot space will require repair.
