Florida hail storms can cause extensive damage to your property. Hail is a form of solid precipitation, called hailstones. Hail is possible when a thunderstorm or a tornado occurs. Hail can damage your roof, skylights, gutters, windows, window screens, pool screen enclosures, air conditioning units and sheds. Leaks can occur inside your home, causing interior damages.
Florida roofing companies typically like to canvas neighborhoods after a hailstorm has occurred. They might require you to sign a contract, (also known as an Assignment of Benefits, or AOB) in order to inspect your roof and submit a claim. Once the AOB is signed, you might be giving away rights to your claim to that specific roofing company or contractor. We do not recommend you sign an AOB to handle your claim. Only a licensed Public Adjuster or attorney can legally represent you. Once you receive the funds from your claim you are free to choose the contractor to complete the repairs. However, if you sign an AOB, you lose the freedom to choose and will be required to use that specific company to do the work on your property.
