Addressing Roof Damage Following a Hailstorm

Addressing Roof Damage Following A Hailstorm

Of all the bad weather that happens in our area, a hailstorm is perhaps the most dangerous. We even had one just recently! Hailstones, which may vary in size and density, can inflict enough damage to homes, leading to shattered window glass, cracked siding, and damaged roofing.

Your next steps following this particularly bad storm are crucial to restoring your roof’s structural integrity. Next Level Roofers, one of the top local roofing companies, explains further.

Signs of Roof Damage to Look Out For

Hail damage is relatively easy to see. Aside from the pellets of ice on the ground, you’ll see noticeable signs such as glass cracks on your windows, dents on your siding, and shingle tears on your roof. Check for the following signs of roof damage:

  • Missing Shingles – Look for gaps in the shingle patterns or exposed roof underlayment. Inspect the ground for shingle pieces, too—this could be a sign of wind damage as well.
  • Damaged Shingles – In addition to cracks and dents, examine the shingles for signs of curling and buckling.
  • Damaged Gutter Systems – The impact of falling hailstones may dislodge the shingle granules from the roof surface. These granules then collect on your gutters and downspouts. Check for punctures and dents on your gutters as well.

Call a Roofing Contractor

It is a good practice to call your trusted local roofers following any storm to ensure a thorough inspection of your roofing system. Through their expertise, they can fully understand the extent of the roof damage following the hailstorm.

They will be able to climb on your roof and inspect your shingles up close and see if there is any damage that is concealed from view. They’ll also determine whether the shingle granules on your gutters are caused by hail or a result of normal weathering. From there, the roofing pros can carry out the necessary repairs to restore your roof into its original condition.
