House with storm hail damage

Storm Hail Damage – If you live in Michigan, you know the saying…”If you don’t like the weather in Michigan, wait five minutes…” Most noteworthy is that residents are well aware that staying on top of Michigan’s weather conditions can be a challenge. As a result, recent storms that bombarded the lower part of Michigan are proof positive of this.

First of all, according to Rosemary Parker’s article in the Kalamazoo Gazette, “In Van Buren County’s Porter Township, between Lawton and Marcellus, the storm shattered windows in homes. Also, the storm shredded screens and ripped shingles from roofs. Furthermore, there was significant damage to the siding of homes and garages, with hundreds of holes on the sides of some homes, and the siding ripped off on others. Homeowners described the damage to siding as appearing houses was full of gunshots.”

Rapid Recovery Service was standing by to assist homeowners with free estimates and quotes from the recent damage. Because high winds, lightning, hail and damaging rains caused severe damage to roofs, siding, windows, farm equipment, trees, and driveways.

Therefore, if you have suffered any property damage from storm, wind and hail damage, here are the steps you should take.

Storm Hail Damage Repair

  • Call your insurance company
  • Contact Rapid Recovery Service – (888) 778-3337

  • Finally, do not make permanent repairs until your insurance company has inspected the property. However, you should make any temporary repairs that are required (i.e. place a tarp over the hole in the roof)

According to the Michigan Committee for Severe Weather Awareness, the best time to prepare for severe weather is before it happens – make sure your family is ready.

For Storm Hail Damage

In this packet the Committee suggests the following tips:

  • Be sure everyone in the household knows where to go and what to do in case of severe weather no matter whether they are at home, workplace or school.
  • As a thunderstorm approaches and you hear thunder, run to the nearest shelter. You are not safe anywhere outside.
  • If there a tornado warning for your area or if you feel threatened by the storm, go to the basement and get under something sturdy. If no basement is available, go to an interior part of the building on the lowest level.
  • A good rule of thumb is to put as many walls between you and the tornado as possible.
  • Listen to a NOAA All-Hazard Weather Radio, or local radio, television and cable stations for the latest weather updates.
