Hail Damage

The unpredictable forces of weather can cause a great deal of damage to homes, particularly during heavy storms. Not every storm carries hail, but when it does, there is certain to be some damage. The size of hail varies from as small as a pea to as large as a golf ball, and the larger the hail the greater the damage it can inflict on homes.

If your home was damaged due to hail and your insurance company has failed to provide benefits according to the terms of your coverage, the Dallas insurance claims attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC, can help you to seek the payments which you are due. Contact us at 214-361-6124 to speak with an experienced lawyer about your claim.

Property Damage from Hail

Hail can affect homes in a variety of ways. Typically, the flatter the roof, the more damage it will sustain because the hail will strike the roof more directly. The greater the slant of the roof, the more the hail will simply glance off of the surface. In either case, however, some damage may be likely to occur in a severe storm. Some of the damage caused by hail to homes includes:

  • Air conditioner damage that effects the functioning of the unit
  • Splitting of shingles
  • Removal of shingles from roof
  • Cracks or holes in flat roofs
  • Granule loss in asphalt shingles
  • Damage to exterior paint
  • Siding damage
  • Broken windows

When homes are damaged by hail, necessary repairs can be prohibitively expensive and this is one of the many reasons that homeowners carry insurance coverage. Policyholders are protected by a contractual agreement, and an insurance company cannot be permitted to violate these terms.
