Easily identify roof damage caused by hail
1st step: Check Metal Parts of Your Roofing
It is helpful for you to know that the parts of your roofing that are made of metal will actually show signs of hail damage more clearly than other materials like shingles. If you have metal roof vents, flashing, etc on your roofing, it is simple to check for dents.
2nd step: Look for Ridge Cap Damage
Most residential roofs in Skokie have a ridge cap at the top. The ridge cap is typically flat and because of this it is more likely to be damaged by hail. At this time you (or our team of professionals) should also check 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:
- 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 quickly as you can).
Hail Damaged Roof Restoration in Skokie
Hail storms can wreak havoc on your home’s roof- many times without homeowners even realizing it.
Our experienced team of contractors provide free roofing inspections after storms crash through Skokie Illinois. These inspections allow us the opportunity to find problems before they get worse 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 serious granule loss. When these granules are displaced it can expose the lower portions of the shingle to the elements. This exposure can dramatically decrease the effectiveness and lifespan of a roof. When your roof shingles are damaged animals and moisture can get in to your home.
Client Testimonial“We had a recent storm come through our area. I believe I spoke to an individual by the name of Raymond about the issue. He was very helpful over the phone and sent out someone for a free inspection right away. As soon as my insurance approved the damages, Raymond and his employees maintained communication and the work began. My family loves the new roof, thank you Raymond for your help!” Henry R.
