On May 25, 2011, severe weather affected Montgomery and Greene counties.
A swath of hail estimated to be several miles wide by 15 to 20 miles long moved through these counties from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
Strong winds and softball-sized hail caused severe damage to many cars, homes, and exterior structures. Roofs and roof shingles were hit particularly hard.
Ohio Insurance Institute estimates the storm caused $322 million to $400 million in damage.
If you reside in the storm-damaged area, there’s a good chance your home — and specifically your roof — may have been damaged.
Due to the massive damage area of the May 25th hail storm, your home may have sustained minimal to extensive damage to your Roof Shingles, Patio Covers, Windows, Siding, Gutters, Downspouts, and Leaf Protection. Damage can be difficult to spot and professional inspection is often required to determine the extent of the repairs needed. Storm-related damages from wind and hail are typically covered under standard homeowners and renters insurance policies.
If your roof was damaged and you’re searching for vendors who do repair work, please beware of scams.
To avoid being taken advantage of, do yourself a favor and take the following measures:
- Check the accreditation of anyone you are considering to perform repair work with the Better Business Bureau.
- Seek locally-owned businesses first.
- Ask for an itemized, detailed assessment of the damage.
- Avoid paying cash.
