When hail hits, it can damage the roof or covering of your home as well as other personal property. Although hailstorms can be destructive, the amount of damage can vary greatly. We are here to help inform about some of the factors that affect the type and degree of damage that may be impacted by a hailstorm, as well as guide homeowners on how to identify hail damage, or other storm damages, to different types of shingles and roofing materials.
Perform an Outdoor Inspection - look for missing and damaged singles (damaged shingles might be curled, cracked or torn) on your roof or around your property. If this type of damage is localized (i.e. it covers less than 30 percent of the entire roof), roofing repairs might be able to address the problem. More extensive damage might necessitate roof replacement. Also keep in mind that not only the roof itself, but the chimney, ventilation pipes, roof flashing, gutters and fencing can also become damaged. Be sure to inspect them for damages as well. If you suspect that your roof is damaged, here is a basic list of what to look for:
Perform an Indoor Inspection - moisture marks, brown, yellow, or grey stains, and peeling paint on walls and/or ceilings could all indicate a damaged, leaking roof. Also, check your attic for damp rafters or leaks. And if you experience a sudden surge in energy costs, it could be a sign that your roof ventilation has been compromised.
Call in a Professional - Call in a roofer for a professional inspection. Getting on your roof yourself is not recommended as it can lead to personal injury and also further damage to your property. A trained professional also has the tools and safety techniques to get up on your roof and check for damages.
If you have roof damage cause by wind and/or flying debris, or any other storm damages to your roof, it's important to get it fixed immediately. The longer you wait, the more damage will occur. Roof replacement and roof repair costs a lot less when you don't have to add in the other costs of repairing leaks and water damage. Contact your trusted team at Keystone Contracting Group, Inc. to asses the situation and determine whether a roof replacement or repair is needed.
After any storm, there will be "fly-by-night" outfits going door-to-door and claiming they are legitimate roofing companies. Most of the time, they do the work quickly and get out of town even faster before you have the chance to address any issues or problems, leaving you little recourse.
