Most of us have been in our home or business during a hail storm at some point. It sounds like rocks falling from the sky and hitting your roof. Of course, it is not rocks. It's hail and hail can be the size of golf balls to grapefruit in Alabama. All you can do is wonder what kind of damage it is doing. Hail can cause catastrophic damage to your home, cars, outdoor furniture, pool, fence, patio covers or anything else in its path. Hail storms cause billions in damages every year in the Alabama area. When you are hit by large enough hail, it causes shingles to bruise and can even crush them, leaving cracked shingle mats and openings for water to enter. Hail causes problems you can't see with an untrained eye. It can cause cracked decking, mold, mildew and interior water damage that may not be visible yet. If left unchecked, hail can lead to thousands of dollars in additional damage that insurance may not pay for if action is not taken to mitigate further damage. Read your policy. In most insurance policies, it is the homeowner's responsibility to mitigate further damage. When high winds are present, it can rip shingles from the roof and leave openings that can lead to interior water damage. Usually the most obvious sign that you have damage on your roof is when you notice water damage to the interior of your home.
