Reasons why insurers deny or underpay insurance claims for hail damage

Reason 1: Lack of documentation
Reason 2: Poorly Maintained Roofs
Reason 3: Unclear policy language

Don’t let this happen to you! Take action now and protect your business. To ensure that your roof hail claim is not denied or underpaid, it is important to have a detailed record of all roof maintenance and repairs, including photos, dates, and descriptions. Additionally, it is important to thoroughly read and understand the language of your insurance policy to ensure that you are aware of any exclusions or limitations that may apply.

Numerous factors affect how a roof covering responds to hail events. Some of these include the roof covering’s age, type, quality, condition, and supporting material as well as variable storm attributes such as hail density, wind direction, and angle of impact.

What are common reasons why insurers deny or underpay hail and wind roof insurance claims?

There are several common reasons why insurers may deny or underpay hail and wind roof insurance claims:

  1. Damage not meeting the deductible: Many insurance policies have a deductible that must be met before the insurance company will pay for any damages. If the cost of the repairs is less than the deductible, the insurance company will not pay out the claim.
  2. Pre-existing damage: Insurance companies may deny claims for damage that was present on the roof prior to the storm. Policyholders need to have a clear understanding of the condition of their roof prior to filing a claim.
  3. Failure to maintain the roof: Insurance companies may also deny claims if the Policyholder has not properly maintained the roof. This could include failing to repair leaks or replacing damaged shingles.
  4. Age of the roof: Insurance policies may have restrictions on coverage for older roofs. If the roof is past a certain age, the insurance company may only pay for a partial replacement, rather than a full replacement.
  5. Dispute over the cause of the damage: Insurance companies may dispute the cause of the damage, especially if there were other factors at play, such as poor installation, deferred maintenance, improper installation, or inadequate ventilation.
  6. Incomplete or inadequate documentation: Insurers require detailed documentation of the damage, including photographs and repair estimates, to support the claim. Failure to provide sufficient documentation can result in a denial or underpayment of the claim.

It is important for home and business owners to review their insurance policies carefully and to work with an experienced contractor to ensure that all necessary repairs are documented and completed to the insurer’s satisfaction.

  • Impact tests and field observations have shown that for laminated, glass-fiber reinforced asphalt shingles, hailstones striking perpendicular to the roof surface must be frozen solid and 1 -1/4 inch in diameter or larger before bruises (fractures in the reinforcement mat) and punctures are likely to occur.
  • Hail impacts on a TPO roof system are characterized by tears and punctures or fractures of the single-ply membrane.
  • Many roofing tiles are designed with a longitudinal interlock to allow proper water shedding in order to match the current surface elevation. The high kinetic energy of the hail impact on the lower corner of the roof tile can cause a point load break, or crack at the over lock corners.  This is not a manufacturing defect of the product, but a point-loading impact that has occurred in a concentrated area.
  • Polymer-modified bitumen membranes are composed of fiberglass and/or polyester reinforcement, and their top surfaces are protected by surfacing such as factory embedded granules, factory-bonded foils or field-applied coatings. Hailstones of sufficient size and hardness can puncture, tear or bruise a polymer modified bitumen membrane where they strike and reduce the membrane’s weatherproofing capability. A roof system’s expected service life can be reduced when hail disrupts the membrane’s protective surfacing and exposes its coating bitumen.
  • Lastly, it is important to document all hail damage and file your claim as soon as possible.
 
 

When filing your commercial or multifamily building hail damage insurance claim, Policyholders need the evidence necessary to support all damages. Insurance Claim Recovery Support helps policyholders document damages and negotiate the insurance policy benefits they have paid for.

HAIL LOSS INSURANCE CLAIMS

How to Prepare for Hail Damage

• Trim tree branches so they don’t rub on the roof;
• Maintain roof per manufacturer recommendations and contractor repair recommendations;
• Remove debris from your roof, gutters and downspouts;
• Get your roof inspected prior to storm season.  A little problem can turn into a BIG PROBLEM;
• Place any items from outside indoors. Small Items have a chance to fly around in high winds and you want to protect as many items as possible;
• Take advantage of our complimentary Risk-Free building inspection before storm season begins.

• Close all windows and cover them up. You don’t want glass flying in.
• Stay indoors, away from skylights and doors.
• Hailstorms can be a warning sign for tornadoes. If the sky is getting dark and you start to hear a loud roar, take shelter in case a tornado is on its way.

• Check property for potential direct hail and/or wind damage;
– Missing shingles, indentations in roof materials;
– Broken windows or siding;
– Dents in gutters, downspouts and air conditioning units;
– Water intrusion to interior.
• Indications of collateral damage
– Damage to trees, fences, landscaping and vehicle dents.
• Take pictures of all damages.
• Contact your insurer or insurance agent and put them on notice you intend to file a hail insurance claim.
• MITIGATE DAMAGES as soon as possible.
• Keep records of mitigation and clean up expenses.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

A public adjuster is a licensed insurance professional who specializes in helping policyholders navigate the complex process of filing and negotiating property damage insurance claims. Public adjusters represent the policyholder’s interests, not the insurance company’s, and work to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim. Their duties include evaluating the damage, reviewing the insurance policy, preparing a detailed claim, and negotiating with the insurance company on behalf of the policyholder.
You should consider hiring a public adjuster if you are facing a large or complex property damage insurance claim, such as those resulting from fire, water, or storm damage. Public adjusters are particularly helpful when the scope of the damages is unclear, the insurance company’s offer seems insufficient, or there are disputes about the cause or extent of the damage. Hiring a public adjuster early in the claims process can help ensure that your claim is properly documented, and your interests are well-represented throughout the process.
Public adjusters typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they successfully recover a settlement for you. Their fee is usually a percentage of the total settlement amount, which is agreed upon in advance. This percentage can vary depending on the complexity of the claim and the location, but it usually ranges from 5% to 15% of the total settlement.
Insurance company adjusters are employed by the insurance company and work to protect the company’s interests. Their primary goal is to evaluate the claim and determine the amount the insurance company is liable to pay, which may not always align with the policyholder’s best interests. On the other hand, public adjusters are independent professionals who work exclusively on behalf of the policyholder. Their primary goal is to ensure that the policyholder receives a fair and prompt settlement for their claim.
While insurance agents and brokers can provide valuable guidance and assistance in filing an insurance claim, they may not have the specialized expertise required to manage complex property damage claims. Public adjusters have extensive experience in assessing damages, interpreting insurance policies, and negotiating with insurance companies, which makes them better equipped to handle large or complicated claims. Hiring a public adjuster can be especially beneficial if you are not satisfied with the settlement offer from your insurance company or if you are facing disputes regarding the cause or extent of the damage.
