Hail is common in Central Florida, and Winter Park Hail Damage is no exception. Winter Park is situated in Orange County in Florida. It was initially known as a vacation resort for folks wanting to avoid the harsh winters of the north. Today it is famous for its liberal arts school – Rollins College, the first college in Florida. World-class museums, pulsating art festivals, and stylish architecture embody life in Winter Park. Did you know that Winter Park achieved notoriety in 1981 as a natural geological occurrence that marred the town’s reputation? This was a sinkhole measuring 350 feet wide, 75 feet deep, that has since become a lake called Lake Rose.
Temperatures in Winter Park soar during the summer months, and this heat is accompanied by winds and rain. A thunderstorm is often the precursor of hail. Even small hailstones can cause a lot of damage to your roof. The shingles on your roof can develop cracks that open up slowly, allowing water to collect. This, in turn, destroys your home’s structure, walls, or windows and can cause leaks, stains, and mold. During a thunderstorm pounding winds carrying hailstones can also damage the siding, exterior paint, brick walls, and windows of your home. Tougher materials may be able to withstand the assault better; however, hailstorms often dent exterior appliances like AC / HVAC units. At first, you may not notice it, but these may stop functioning if the unit’s condenser coils are compromised, requiring expensive repairs. Insuring your home against natural calamities and other risks like plumbing leaks, theft, vandalism, etc., is a good idea.
