The northern area of Texas saw up to 2.5-inch hail Friday night.
West of Allen and North West of Plano, Texas, was hit with up to tennis ball size hail on the evening of Friday, May 19th, 2023. Although short-lived, this hailstorm significantly impacted many properties in the Colin County area of Texas. Following a storm like this, the main concern is ensuring you are getting your property inspected for hail damage. It may not have been damaged enough for an insurance claim, so receiving the proper inspection to assist you in deciding if a hail damage claim is necessary or not can prevent you from filing a frivolous claim.
What Kind Of Damage Does Hail Cause?
Hail damage impacts building materials differently and it is important to have someone inspect the damage that understands and knows how to properly assess the specific material types on your property. For instance, the proper assessment of commercial building materials is much different than that of a residential building. So, if you have been impacted by hail, it is important to make sure that your public adjuster, contractor, or adjuster specializes in your specific property type and/or materials.
Should I File an Insurance Claim for Hail Damage?
When hail hits your property it is always a good idea to have a professional evaluate the damage. Having a proper inspection and damage assessment can help you determine when damage has occurred before filing a potentially frivolous claim. When filing your claim, you should have all the facts to present at the time of filing so that you are setting the appropriate expectations for your insurance carrier. In doing this, you are not only allowing them to assign the appropriate adjuster to your claim, but you are ultimately setting your claim up for success and an expedited process. Remember it is your responsibility to prove the damage!
