Park your vehicle in a garage or carport. If you cannot, to help minimize the impact of hail, you can cover your car with a thick blanket
If possible, avoid driving your car in the hail – the impact is stronger when your car is in motion.
Regularly inspect your roof to keep it free from defects and in good condition
Install protective shields for equipment such as HVAC units and install coverings for your roof and skylights
Close all windows/doors during a hail storm and where you can, install impact-resistant shutters over all large windows and glass doors
If you have any patio furniture, BBQs, bikes, toys, etc. in your yard, make sure to secure or relocate them. In addition to being damaged, with the high winds that accompany hailstorms, these items could become projectiles.
