Hail and Wind Damage
Finally, businesses of all sizes and industries can be negatively impacted by wind and hail damage, as most states experience severe weather throughout the year. Windstorms can lead to roof damage, broken tree limbs, power outages, shattered windows, ruined signage, toppled trees, and property damage caused by flying debris and outdoor materials. Hail damage, while rare, can cause even more devastating damages for commercial properties such as ruined inventory and equipment, structural and roof damage, cracked HVAC systems, and utility outages. To reduce the potential losses caused by windstorm and hail damage, businesses should ensure that trees on the commercial property are regularly pruned, all exterior inventory or equipment is secured under coverings or tied down, and all furniture and décor is anchored to prevent being thrown around and damaging more.
