Hail damage to a restaurant can cost a business thousands of dollars in lost revenue with each passing day.
When a hailstorm damages a restaurant, it is more likely to not be functional than other businesses due to health code regulations it must adhere to, expensive equipment needing repair, and perishable products that spoil quickly.
An eatery therefore requires fast repairs to limit losses after restaurant property damage. The business losses increase every time an insurance company underpays, delays payment, or denies coverage.
Restaurant Property Damage
If a hailstorm damages the restaurant building and its contents, it can cause a lot of different types of losses.
Food spoilage, equipment failure, building damage, inventory loss, and losses attributable to business interruptions are common losses restaurants experience.
Hailstorm damage to a restaurant’s physical structure can include broken windows and leaking roofs.
Large hail can break glass, damage roofs, dent siding and kill plants. And it can all happen in a matter of minutes.
A severe hailstorm can leave a roof damaged and in need of repair. Leaks may not start right away and/or only get worse over time.
