We Provide Expert Roofing Repair for Storm Damage
Hail & Storm Repair Services
Imagine Tiger Woods driving a thousand golf balls at your roof. That should give you a good idea of how a severe hail storm can harm roof shingles, gutters, vent hoods, and other roof components.
Following a severe storm, your first roofing concern should be to determine whether or not the storm caused any leakage that could damage your home’s interior. Even if your roof survives a hail storm without leaking, there may still be significant hail damage. That’s why it’s important to call in an experienced roofing expert like GutterShutter by Keeney Home Services to check your roof for hail damage.
We will thoroughly inspect your entire roof and look for any signs of damage. Our expert roofers have the experience to be able to suggest the appropriate roofing services, whether it’s roof repair or a full roof replacement. After a storm, we’re the experts to call!
Hail Damages Different Roofing Materials Differently
Experience in roof inspections following hail storms has educated roofing contractors about how hail damage affects different roofing materials. Not surprisingly, hail damages different roofing materials in different ways.
Roof hail damage can also vary greatly from one part of a house roof to another. This variation is due primarily to the wind that drives the hail. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at close to 90 degrees.
- Hail damage to asphalt shingles: Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life.
- Hail damage to wood shingles: Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts. Cracking will be along the grain, and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
- Hail damage to slate roofs: Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.
