Easily identify roof damage caused by hail

1st step: Check Metal Parts of Your Roofing

Believe it or not, but the parts of your roofing that are made of metal will actually show signs of hail damage more obviously than other materials like shingles. If you have metal roof vents, flashing, etc on your roofing, it is easy to check to see if you have any dents.  

2nd step: Look for Ridge Cap Damage

Most residential roofs in Forest Lake Illinois 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 immediate area for any signs of harm.


Other Major Signs

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

  •  Bruising
  •  Cracking
  •  Granules missing from asphalt (one easy 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 Forest Lake Illinois

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

Our experienced team offers free roofing inspections after storms rage through Forest Lake IL. This helps us to find problems before they become more serious for homeowners. When it comes to damage done to your home’s roof, asphalt shingles are the most likely to be impacted. When an asphalt shingle is damaged by hail the fiberglass in the shingle could become fractured which leads to substantial 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.
