Average insurance payout for hail and wind damage roof
According to State Farm, the average insurance payout for hail damaged homes was $12,000 in 2020. Of course, that takes into account all claims, large and small. Wind and hail damage insurance claims are among the most often used by homeowners, as Mother Nature can unleash her wrath at any given moment during the stormy spring and summer months.
Most insurance companies require you to file a claim within a year of the damage occurring, however, waiting that long is rarely, if ever, recommended. Not all cases involve an increase in premiums when you file a claim, because wind and hail damage insurance claims are of no fault of the homeowner. However, premiums can go up if claims are filed within three years of each other, which is why it’s important that every claim matters.

What to do after hail and storm damage to your home?

STEP 1: Visually Inspect Your House Exterior
When it is safe to go outside, take a good look at your siding and roof. Do you see dents or impact damage? Look for marks, scuffs or any disfiguration.
STEP 2: Contact a Roofing & Siding Expert
If you think you see damage, don’t file a claim. Instead, call VIS and have us come out to make an assessment. If the damage is worthy of a claim, we’ll let you know. The problem with filing a claim when there is no actual damage is that you can see an increase in your premium from your insurance company.
STEP 3: Explain the Full Extent of the Damage
When describing the damage you see, give as much detail as possible. Is the damage extensive or is it confined to specific areas of the roof? Do you see dents or are there actual holes in the roof? Furthermore, are any shingles missing or partially removed?
STEP 4: Arrange an On-Site Inspection
