The staff at Robbins Roofing has over 60 years of combined roofing experience in Oklahoma City. We have had decades of experience dealing with hail damage. What are the first things you should do after a hailstorm?
You should immediately call a professional to inspect the damage. We always recommend that you let a professional take a look at your roof and inspect the damage. It is risky for inexperienced individuals to climb on a roof, and trained professionals know what to look for.
Contact your insurance company immediately if you are planning to file a claim. Some insurance companies will offer to send one of their adjusters to inspect the damage, while others may just tell you to get a few estimates. Make sure that you file your claim in a reasonable amount of time. If you have unreported home damage, your insurance company may not cover it. Some hail damage can worsen and develop into a leak in a matter of months or years. By then it may unfortunately be too late to cover your damages with insurance.
