Why Is Hail Such A Danger To Roofs?

Minor hail may not cause any issues, but heavier and larger hailstones can do considerable damage to roofs, cars and anything else it strikes. Hailstones form when droplets of water freeze around a particle of dust and ultimately fall to the ground when they’re too heavy to stay aloft. Of course, the force of heavy chunks of ice landing on your roof can cause severe damage.

What Should I Do If A Hail Storm Strikes My Property?

If in doubt, call in a professional inspector to determine the severity of hail damage and the necessity of repairs. Some damage may be merely cosmetic, while other damage can completely ruin your roof. It’s not always easy to know the difference

What Can A Professional Roof Inspector See That A Homeowner May Not?

In some cases, the only way to determine how much damage a roof has sustained is to lift the shingles from a suspected problem section in order to inspect the shingles from the bottom. Afterward, that area requires re-sealing. This is not a task for an untrained person.

How Important Is The Choice Of A Local Roofer?

After major storms, sometimes out-of-town companies converge on an area known to have suffered heavy hail damage. You may have heard of the common practice of such companies swooping in, setting a temporary local number, scooping up as much roof replacement and repair business as they can, performing sloppy work and leaving town. By the time the homeowners realize their roof jobs were substandard, the out-of-town company is gone, and the phone number is canceled. To avoid this, call a trusted community roofing company that is known to stand behind its work.
