Wind and hail property damage statistics

Hail and wind damage causes about 1 billion dollars in damage to crops and property each year, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Hail Damage:

Did you know that all hail damage is not obvious?

Hail Strikes- Hailstorms are known to cause visible damages to the exterior of properties including the bruising of roof shingles, shattering of windows, shredding of window screens, punctured and cracked siding as well as dents to soft metals such as gutters, fascia, and exterior trim.

Hailstone strikes are usually easy to notice from just a walk around your property. However, noticing them on a roof may be a little more difficult to detect because the impact points tend to “blend in” the mat of the shingle color. Roof damage that is unnoticeable can worsens over time and cause serious and long-term damage to the interior of your property and potentially affect your health due to moisture seeping into wall and ceiling cavities causing mold and decay.

Therefore, it is best to engage a professional to inspect your home for damage in the wake of a major hailstorm.

Spotting Hail Damage:

  • Dents and dings on gutters and downspouts
  • Cracks and splitting on vinyl siding
  • Holes and breaks in window screens
  • Chipping and discoloration on siding
  • Excess Shingle Granules in Gutter
  • Recent severe storm activity

Wind Damage:

High wind speeds can cause damage affecting several
components of your property.

Windstorms can produce some easy to spot visual damage such as missing shingles tabs or an entire section of the roof being blown off. However, primary structural damage may not exhibit as much noticeable evidence.  Sometimes the impact and or sudden fluctuation of wind can shift foundations, crack rafters and sheeting and lead to interior drywall cracks that don’t surface until much later.

It is very important to thoroughly inspect both the interior and exterior of the property and look for clues to determine if you have damage.  But, it can easily be overlooked if it’s not something you are used to assessing.   It is strongly advisable to get a professional damage inspection as soon as possible after a storm incident to determine the extent of the damage and limit the possibility of further damage as well.  Jacobs Ladder is available to quickly and professionally assess your property for any and all damages.

Potential Hail Damage Signs:

  • Missing Shingle Tabs
  • Loose or Missing Siding
  • Fallen Trees and Tree Limbs
  • Detached Shutters
  • Interior water stains or leaks in your ceilings
  • Recent severe storm activity

Gutters & Downspouts

5-inch seamless, aluminum gutters are today’s standard for rain gutters on homes. Installing 5-inch gutters on your home produces an immediate significant difference in how rainwater is captured from your roof, directed to the ground and most importantly away from your foundation.

Do You Have Hail Damage?

Hail damage to gutters is typically easy to see, but only if you know where to look. The effects of hail on rain gutters can be seen in the form of dings or indentations. Depending on the direction of the hail, these dings could be on the outside of the gutters as well as the bottom of the gutters (if the hail was coming straight down). If you think you have damage or your gutters are aging or just plain missing…CALL a Jacobs Ladder Recovery Team Manager (RTM) for a FREE damage inspection and FREE Xact-Quote today!
