Easily identify roof damage caused by hail
1st step: Check Metal Parts of Your Roofing
You should know that 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 look to see if you have any dents.
2nd step: Look for Ridge Cap Damage
Most residential roofs in Ivanhoe Illinois have a ridge cap at the top. The ridge cap is typically 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:
- 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 Ivanhoe
Hail storms can wreak havoc on homes – many times without homeowners even realizing it.
Our professional team offers free roofing inspections after storms tear through Ivanhoe Illinois. This lets us find problems before they become more disastrous for homeowners. When it comes to damage done to your home’s roof, asphalt shingles are the most likely to be affected. 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 moved out of place it exposes the lower portions of the shingle to the elements. This can dramatically decrease the effectiveness and lifespan of the roof.
