A disaster such as a hailstorm can result in serious damage to a commercial property. If a business’s roof has suffered serious hail damage, the damage is not limited to the physical structure. Any shutdown of operations due to roof damage can harm your business’s customer relationships, its ability to meet deadlines for orders and to provide services, and the amount of revenue it receives from sales or even rent from tenants of your commercial property.
Unfortunately, commercial insurers often dispute commercial hail roof claims, leaving business owners without the compensation they need to make repairs and to rebuild in a timely manner. If your commercial insurance carrier has disputed your commercial hail roof claim, you may have a claim for damages.
Fighting For Compensation Your Business Is Entitled To
After a hailstorm, your commercial property may suffer lasting damage to roofing granules and shingles, which can reduce the overall lifespan of a roof. Not only can hail damage require extensive repairs, but your business’s roof may even need to be completely replaced.
To avoid paying out on valid claims, commercial insurance carriers will dispute the hail damage by arguing the damaged roof of your commercial property only needs repairs instead of full replacement. Insurers also may try to argue the roof damage existed prior to the hailstorm, the age of the roof contributed to the damage, the damage resulted from wear and tear, or that your business failed to properly maintain the roof over time.
