Hail Damage: A Serious Threat to Your Home

Hail Damage: A Serious Threat to Your Home

Jul 20, 2022

It doesn’t happen often, but when a hail storm moves through your area it’s natural to have concerns about the well-being of your home. Hail doesn’t always cause damage, but there’s always a chance that it could.

Here are some of the many types of damage that hail can cause:

  • Roof damage: It goes without saying that your roof will take a beating during a hail storm. Your shingles are pelted over and over again. Add in strong wind and there’s a high risk of damage.
  • Skylight damage: A skylight faces the sky. And for that reason, it’s in the line of fire when hail begins to fall. Depending on the severity, cracks and/or holes could occur.
  • Window and vinyl siding damage: Your windows and vinyl siding aren’t immune to hail damage. These parts of your home won’t take as much direct impact as your roof, but they’re still at risk.

If a hail storm hits your area, wait for it to clear and then examine your home for damage. And of course, if you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, hire a professional to visit your property. This is often the better choice as it eliminates the risk of an accident, such as falling off a ladder when trying to reach your roof.
