Hail Damage

Got Some Hail Damage?

When it comes to hail damage, it’s one of the worst forms of roof damage that exists to date. For instance, hail can crack the roofs or gutters of a building. On average, the size of hailstones and their falling rate vary. But, even if there are no dips on the roof, hail can still damage the underneath roof.

However, if you notice damage in gutters, sidings and other parts of your building, it’s important to have the roof inspected and repaired too. Essentially, don’t assume that your roof has not been damaged by a hailstorm just because there are no visible signs of damage.

Bear in mind the fact that hail damages anything that it comes across, and, when hail hits your roof, make sure that it is repaired as soon as possible. That’s the only way to take charge of the security, safety and dependability of your home.

What Are Signs of Hail Damage?

Larger hail stones cause more damage on the roof than small hail stones. When inspecting your roof to determine the extent of the hailstone damage, there are things that you should look for.

Here are signs that you have a hail damage issue to deal with:

  • Lost Roof Granules- Your roof has tiny granules that prevent fire while protecting shingles from the harsh weather. They also provide protection against the scorching sun. If there are lost granules in your roof, it has probably suffered damage and you should have it fixed.
  • Damaged Fiberglass- Fiberglass is an additional insulation layer on the roof. It also maintains the structural integrity of the roof. If the fiberglass on the roof is damaged, the roof can have other problems. For instance, mold can invade your building and moisture issues can arise. To avoid this, schedule hail damage repair with us the moment you notice damaged fiberglass in your property.
  • Sealant Erosion- Your roof has sealant that prevents too much movement of the shingles. It also keeps the shingles in their place. Sealant is eroded by hail damage thereby decreasing the seal. This raises the possibility of having the shingles fall off.
