Hailstorms can wreak havoc on your home and property. In states like Texas, most homeowners insurance policies cover hail damage. Find out what you should do if you suspect your home and roof has suffered hail damage.

Will Homeowners Insurance Cover Hail Damage to My Roof?

Does homeowners insurance cover hail damage?

A hailstorm can wreak havoc on your home, particularly the roof or other exposed portions of your property. In states prone to hailstorms like Texas, it is common for most homeowner insurance policies to cover hail damage. How your coverage is applied may vary based on where you live, your insurer and how your policy is set up. Most standard policies have a time limit in which a claim must be filed. Typically, you will have to file a claim within one year of the hail damage. Be sure to contact your insurance agent or insurance company to ensure you are covered and are aware of any limitations or time limits to file claims.

Will insurance rates go up due to hail damage claims?

There are many questions and concerns that arise before filing a claim. Many are often afraid that their insurance rates will increase due to a hail damage claim. Will insurance raise your rates? Your insurer typically won't raise your rate due to weather damage since it isn't caused by your negligence. However, your rate may go up if you’ve filed a claim within the past three years, and the hail claim is your second claim.

An insurance company may charge everyone in a geographic location a higher base rate compared to locations where hail is infrequent. It's important to note that some states, including Texas, prohibit home insurers from raising rates after just one claim.
