When hail pelts a region, it can seem like no property is spared the damage. Homeowners, business owners, and property owners of all kinds are left to clean up the damage and get ready to file their hail insurance claims. For governments and public agencies, however, that extensive damage can represent unique challenges on a number of properties—and extremely costly losses over an entire city, county, or state.
Numerous Types of Governmental or Public Properties Can Be Affected by Hail
While most home and business owners in the region may only be filing moderate claims for a roof or windows in a single structures, governmental policyholders could be looking at an extremely costly price tag on damages to all kinds of property, including:
- Trees, parks, and landscaping
- Roofing systems and windows on governmental and administrative buildings
- Roads and transportation systems
- Waste and water treatment equipment and facilities
- Damage to other public services and utility equipment
- Storage yards for equipment
- Public areas, such as sidewalks and parking lots
