Hail Damage? | We Can Fix It
After a hail storm it is easy to overlook the potential hail damage since we can’t see our roofs easily and because we think to ourselves “our shingles were made for that”. These common mindsets leads the common homeowner to believe that there is minimal or nonexistent damage; wrong, hail can fall at speeds great than 120 mph so even though you might not be able to see the damage from the ground there very well could be extensive damage to the shingles or holes in the structure itself.
However, it’s not just the shingles and the roof it’s the entire home that could be at risk for much bigger issues. For example, asphalt shingles shed some of their granules which find their ways into your gutters. Clogged gutters can impact draining around your home, cause foundation, leakage and flooding issues. A similar effect happens with wood shingles, those granules are called splinters. Missing granules and splinters cause another problem.
As these shingles lose their protective granules following a hailstorm the shingles become exposed to UV rays and other weather like snow, win and rain. This will eventually cause shingles to become brittle and weak, further impacting the integrity of your roof. Still not convinced you need to get your roof checked or fixed after a hailstorm? Consider this, mold is an issues given that weak roofing material permits moisture into your attic and ceilings that mold and water will find its way into your wiring, piping and insulation which can cause fires, decaying drywall and compromised foundations. It’s a fact that ignoring the problem could lead to much bigger and much more expensive issues.
