Hail can vary in size, from the size of a pea to the size of a softball, but—big or small—it can still be destructive. Many commercial properties across the nation suffer hail-related losses every year in severe storms, and some just simply aren’t prepared to pay for and organize a successful recovery in the aftermath. To make things even more difficult, some business owners find themselves struggling against their own insurance companies over inaccurate assessments, mysterious delays, and unacceptably low offers for their legitimate claims.
Hail Damage Can Lead to Extensive Losses for Commercial Properties and Businesses
Even small hailstones can ruin shingles, damage paint, or dent vehicles and siding. Hailstorms that produce very large hailstones obviously create the potential for even more serious damages to commercial properties, sometimes shattering windows or causing structure damage. Depending on the circumstances, business owner may expect to see damage to:
- Siding and exteriors
- Air conditioning units
- Company vehicles and other equipment
