When your home or business has gone through a hail storm, its rare that the roof is the only part that sustains damage. As a matter of fact, if the storm was severe enough to cause damage to your roofing, it most likely caused damage around your property. While you may have requested that your insurance company inspect your roof for hail damage, the inspection process should evaluate your property as a whole.

What to Expect from a Hail Damage Roof Inspection
One of the first things a competent insurance adjuster will do is inspect the perimeter of your home for collateral damage. The adjuster should closely inspect areas such as window screens, gutters and downspouts, exterior decks, windows sashes, siding, and any exterior elements that are finished with aluminum metal wrapping. Additionally, collateral damage can be found on lawn furniture, decorations, exterior doors, and air-conditioning units.
Your insurance adjuster should begin the roof inspection by visually inspecting soft metal components of the roofing system. These may include aluminum roofing vents, and metal flashing around roof penetrations such as pipes and chimneys. Soft metal will almost always show damage from hail, and serves to indicate that the roof has some level of damage. Depending on the roofing materials, your insurance adjuster should then look for dents, punctures, broken glass, cracks, and spatter marks.
