Protecting Your Home from Hail

Protecting Your Home from Hail

Earlier this month, a hailstone measuring 4.25″ in length, 2″ wide and 2.25″ tall, set a record forHawaii. This hailstone's length is roughly comparable to the diameter of a softball, which is known to punch holes in roofs!

Hail can occur in any strong thunderstorm, which means it's a threat everywhere. When it hits, it can shred roof coverings and lead to water damage to your ceilings, walls, floors, appliances and personal possessions. Knowing which roof coverings resist impact well can save you lots of trouble and money.

Most roofing jobs are not the do-it-yourself type. Unless you have lots of experience in replacing roof coverings, hire a professional roofing contractor.

H & S Roofing Company is located in Charlotte, NC and has provided area homeowners and businesses with professional roofing services for more than 70 years.

It's also a great idea to review your homeowners insurance policy periodically with your insurance agent or company representative to make sure you have sufficient coverage to protect the investment you've made in your home. Report any property damage to your insurance agent or company representative immediately after a natural disaster and make temporary repairs to prevent further damage.
