Hail Storm Checklist

N

Take photos and video of the storm as it is happening and document any large stones, missing shingles, damaged personal property and landscaping.

N

Don’t throw any damaged personal property away until your Insurance Adjuster documents it.

N

Check your ceiling and look for leaks. Document any water coming in from roof leaks, broken windows, damaged vents, over-flowing gutters and window-well water.

N

Check to see if any skylights are damaged and leaking.

N

If you have active leaks, call Storm Guard for Emergency Tarping. This is almost always covered by your Insurance Company. Tarping will mitigate any interior damage and protect the roof until a new roof can be installed.

N

While standing on the ground, check for visible roof or gutter damage.

N

Call your Insurance Agent and ask about your policy:

  • How much is your Hail and Wind Deductible – Is it a percentage or flat fee?
  • Find out if you have Building Code Upgrade Coverage.
  • Find out if you have property landscaping cleanup for your yard.
  • Find out if you have emergency tarping coverage.
  • Get the phone number of the claims department so you can file a claim.
N

Call Storm Guard to schedule your free, no obligation property damage inspection.

N

Put a Storm Guard sign in your yard to stop the door knocking or download and print the provided “NO SOLICITING” sign on your front door (see link below).

N

Call your Insurance Company Claims Department and file a claim.

N

Call Storm Guard and notify them of the date and time the Insurance Adjuster is meeting you.

N

The Adjuster Inspects the property and if damage is found, a written Statement of Loss/Estimate will be provided.

N

To manage the claim going forward, sign an Agreement with Storm Guard.

N

Pay your deductible to Storm Guard.

N

Once the first check comes from the Insurance Company, work with Storm Guard to get the check endorsed by the Mortgage Company and fill out required payment release forms.
