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 the signs of hail damage more apparently than other materials like shingles. If you have metal roof vents, flashing, etc on your roofing, look to see if you can see any dents.
2nd step: Look for Ridge Cap Damage
Most residential roofs in Lake in the Hills Illinois feature a ridge cap at the top of your roofing. The ridge cap is typically flat and because of this it is more susceptible to roofing hail damage. At this time you (or our team of professionals) will also check the shingles in the immediate area for any signs of damage.
Other Major Signs
The three most common signs of hail damage to your shingles are:
- 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 immediately)
Hail Damaged Roof Restoration in Lake in the Hills Illinois
Hail storms can wreak havoc on homes – many times without homeowners even realizing it.
Our experience team offers free roofing inspections after storms come through Lake in the Hills. This allows us to spot problems before they become large issues for homeowners. When it comes to damage done to your home’s roof we find that asphalt shingles are the most likely to be impacted. When an asphalt shingle is damaged by hail the fiberglass in the shingle may become fractured which leads to significant granule loss. When these granules are displaced it exposes the underlying portions of the shingle to the elements. This can greatly reduce the effectiveness and lifespan of the roof.
