Severe weather season means storms can do all sorts of damage to your property. A report by State Farm ranks Indiana as one of the Top 10 states with the most losses to wind and hail damage.
The report states wind and hail damage cost State Farm and the state $3.9 billion last year alone. State Farm filed some 23-thousand claims for Indiana making it number seven on the list of damage claims in 2012.
Texas, Illinois and New York are the top three. Spokesperson Missy Dundov says when building or remodeling your home, impact resistant roofing is the best way to reduce hail damage to your home.
She also advises pulling cars, boats, RVs, patio furniture and other possessions into covered areas to minimize impact and flying debris on your property. Finally, Dundov says if you have storm damage, always seek out reputable roofing contractors that are licensed or bonded.
Also make sure they‘re listed with the National Roofing Contractors Association.
