Hail Size Explained! What size hail will cause hail damage to your home or your business?

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, hail causes an average of $1 billion damage to crops and property each year; some years have exceeded more than $2 billion in damage.
Anyone whose property is struck by hail needs to have professionals check to make sure there is damage. Not all hail storms cause damage, Brennan says.  Pea sized hail (1/4 of an inch) or marble-sized hail (1/2 inch) might not cause damage. Anything larger, say a dime or a quarter (3/4 to one inch) can cause serious damage. Golf ball sized hail is 1 ¾ inches and softball-sized hail is 4 ½ inches according to NOAA.
Only a professional should evaluate the extent of the damage to your business or your home. Call an Experienced Public Adjuster for a free Hail Damage Claim evaluation. (407) 212-8669
