Roof Hail Damage Repair Services
When people often think of storm damage to roofs, they commonly think of terrible storms that rip trees from the earth — trees that then end up on top of their home, destroying their stable roof in the process. However, some of the most damaging storms actually have to do with hail storms. Yes, harsh wind can damage your home and may require you to have to find an emergency roof repair service. However, it’s always important to remember the damage that a particularly bad hail storm can do to your roof!
Hail is especially damaging to asphalt shingle roofing… and unfortunately, so many residential homes have shingle roofs. A bad hail storm can cause asphalt shingles to break, crack, or fall off. Hail can also cause nails that hold shingles in place to fall off, which can result in a tiny hole that you don’t see at all, but which can cause major issues if not taken care of immediately. Basically, hail storms can cause great damage to all types of roofs, but especially asphalt shingle roofs. However, if you’ve experienced damage from hail and need immediate service on your roof, we’re here to help!

If the hail falling from the sky is quite big, then this can definitely cause great damage to your roof. There are many different types of damage that you may see after a pretty bad hail storm. For example, metal elements to your roof — such as your gutters — can take a beating after a storm and could even be left with dents. Sometimes, this can greatly affect the performance of the gutters and metal elements. And if your gutters aren’t working correctly, it can damage your house and even cause parts of your home to rot, as water will get on it every time it rains. Therefore, it’s important to survey your house after every bad hail storm to ensure that your roof is okay!
Hail Storm Damages To Look For
Worried about your roof after a hail storm? Here are a few things to look for. If you notice any of these, it’s time to call someone who can quickly repair your roof before these small issues become massive ones. If you notice any fractured shingles, it’s incredibly important that you call someone to fix this right away. When large hail hits your shingles with enough force, it can cause them to crack and leave them shattered in the process. These fractured shingles can now allow water to seep through to the rest of your home, sometimes in large amounts. Any amount of water leaking into your home is too much, so it’s vital that you get this fixed sooner rather than later.
You should also look for any “bald spots” on your roof. When hail hits your shingles, it can make the ceramic granules that protect your shingles fall off. This leaves your roof looking like it has a few bald spots. These granules go a long way in keeping your shingles — and therefore your roof — stable. So, if you notice these bad spots, call a roofer immediately to get everything fixed!
