Calgary Skylights Take a Beating - Hail Insurance Claims Through the Roof

The storm last weekend that rolled through Calgary was intense. Our 24 hour emergency roof and skylight repair service lines continued busy all week with Skylights, Roofing, Soffits, Fascia, Gutters... and more damaged by the hail.

The 400 million dollar Calgary Hail Insurance world record set a few years back may not be beaten with storm, and if not, it certainly should come close. The hail shattered skylights, drove holes in the siding of Calgary homes, damaged flashing, shingles, concrete tile on roofs, and even damaged flat roof membranes which is unusual.

Even the Calgary Saddledome's Roof was damaged in the hail storm:

"The hailstorm did impact our roof, there is some damage, although we don't know how much yet.

"We haven't had to close the building, but there will definitely be some repairs."

The Saddledome damage is the latest in an ever-growing pile of claims the Insurance Bureau Canada expects will contribute to higher rates and deductibles in future years.

Insurance companies throughout the city are continuing to scramble to assess the deluge of damage claims from this week's double-whammy of severe weather in Calgary.

Last Sunday evening brought a monster storm dropping hail stones larger than golf balls over parts of the city, causing millions of damage to cars and homes.

Two days later, black clouds covered the city's late afternoon skies, bringing hail, rain and wind gusts of up to 100 km an hour, taking down trees and signs along Deerfoot Trail.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada says damage claim estimates for the city's two storms are still being tallied and won't be available for some time.

But IBC's Alberta spokesman Graham Laughton said Calgary and its surrounding areas have been home to an increased number of severe weather events in recent years, which could start to bring claims, fees and deductibles higher than ever.

"Every time you turn around there is something severe in terms of weather ... and that will make rates go up."

Laughton explained that most basic home insurance covers damages caused by wind, hail and falling objects, including trees and other debris during windstorms.
