In the wake of a damaging hail event, there are 4 critical processes that must take place to ensure that a building owner is fairly compensated for any insured losses they may have suffered.

  1. DETECTION – a reliable and accurate system for detecting hail and alerting buildings owner to possible damage.
  2. INSPECTION – a trusted roofing and building expert who has the right tools and knowledge to properly inspect and identify even the hardest to find hail damage.
  3. EVIDENCE COLLECTION – a trusted expert who knows what information insurance providers require as proof of loss to effectively settle claims
  4. NEGOTIATION – a trusted insurance expert to protect the owner’s interests throughout the claims settlement process.

1DETECTION: 65% of hail storms occur outside of the typical 8 to 5 workday. With managers off site, hail storms are often overlooked. A reliable/accurate notification and alerting system like HailFlash™, replaces an owner’s dependence on managers with an automated weather analysis and reporting system that ensures potential hail damage is instantly recognized.  Detection of every damaging hail storm is the first step to ensuring hail damage is not overlooked, that insurance is effectively utilized, and that roof repairs/replacements are not paid for in error out of an owner’s capital funds.

Recommendation: Deploy the HailFlash™ monitoring service across your properties


2INSPECTION: Most roof related hail damage is not readily visible to the untrained eye, but looks can be deceiving. Without proper training, millions of dollars of hail damage can easily be overlooked. With proper training, managers and maintenance personnel can perform preliminary hail damage assessments, and an expert roof inspector can be brought in later if needed to confirm findings.

Recommendation:
1) Deploy the free HailFlash™ Hail Damage Inspection Training module to all building managers and maintenance personnel each time hail strikes.
