Wind & Hail Damage
TEXAS #1 COMMERCIAL ROOF RESTORATION COMPANY
Hail damage to a roof is nearly impossible to identify from the ground, with the exception being baseball size hail and greater. Hail can damage any roof regardless of its age, an older roof is more susceptible to damage than a newer roof. The only way to inspect a roof for hail damage is to access all slopes. There are several other points of interest that might alert a homeowner that their roof is hail damaged. These damages are called collateral damages and may include; gutters, downspouts, window glazing strips, vinyl siding, fencing, painted surfaces and ceiling stains. Many times these damages are missed by both the homeowner and the insurance adjuster.
HAIL DAMAGE TO AN ASPHALT ROOF
The granules on your roof serve two purposes; to protect the asphalt saturated fiberglass mat from the UV rays of the sun, and to add weight to prevent blow offs. When hail impacts your roof, it can drive the granules into the asphalt saturated fiberglass mat, causing an obvious break/hole or create a bruise. The bruise is the most difficult to identify, and left unrepaired will eventually result in a leak. Hail damage will void most shingle manufactures’ warranties, and reduce the life expectancy of your roof.
Wind damage to an asphalt roof can be obvious, such as with tree-limb-penetration, or missing or torn shingles. The wind can lift shingles without blowing them off your roof too. These lifted shingles can develop a crease and allow debris underneath, preventing the shingle from re-sealing. These creased, lifted or unsealed shingles are now wind-damaged, and can result in a roof leak. These wind damages will void most shingle manufactures’ warranty, and reduce the life expectancy of your roof.
