Easily identify roof damage caused by hail

1st step: Check Metal Parts of Your Roofing

It would be helpful for you to know that the parts of your roofing that are made of metal will actually show signs of hail damage more transparently than other materials like shingles. If you have metal roof vents, flashing, etc on your roofing, it is easy to check for dents.  

2nd step: Look for Ridge Cap Damage

Most residential roofs in Arlington Heights IL have a ridge cap at the top. The ridge cap is usually flat and because of this it is more susceptible to hail damage. At this time you (or our team of professionals) should also inspect the shingles in the nearby area for any signs of damage.


Other Major Signs

The three most common signs of hail damage to your shingles are:

  •  Bruising
  •  Cracking
  •  Granules missing from asphalt (one simple way to spot this is to actually look in your gutters. If you see a build up of shingle granules call us as soon as you can).

Hail Damaged Roof Restoration in Arlington Heights Illinois

Hail storms can wreak havoc on homes – many times without homeowners even realizing it. 

Our knowledgable team offers free roofing inspections after storms tear through Arlington Heights. This allows us to find problems before they worsen for home or business owners. When it comes to damage done to your home’s roof, asphalt shingles have a higher tendency to be impacted. When an asphalt shingle is damaged by hail the fiberglass in the shingle might become fractured which will lead to significant granule loss. When these granules are displaced it exposes the lower portions of the shingle to the elements. This can significantly decrease the effectiveness and lifespan of the roof.
