When a twister touches down and sweeps through a specific area, many homes and businesses are destroyed in its path. Additionally, the properties around the storm’s path are also damaged from the hailstorm or high winds the tornado causes.
When Texas tornadoes produce large hail, the softball-sized hail can break windows and cause damage to front yards, garages, roofs and siding on homes. When this occurs, water can leak into homes from holes in the roof and cracks in the windows. Not only can homeowners suffer hail damage, but their homes can also suffer wind and water damage as a result of the hailstorm.
Recent Hailstorm Damages
One recent example of hailstorm damage occurred to the community of St. Louis in late April. Reports indicate that 100,000 residential insurance claims could be filed from a hailstorm that moved through the area, causing roofs to leak from baseball-size hail.
Contractors indicate that roof repairs can range from $8,000 to $40,000, depending on the damage that is done and the size of the home’s roof. If large hail caused holes in the roof through which water was able to pour into the home, the property damage could be extensive.
When dealing with a stressful situation like this, it is best for a homeowner to turn to a Texas insurance claim lawyer to obtain the maximum claim payout possible.
