Hail Damage Repair
Why is calling for hail damage repair right after the storm so important? Because it can save you a lot of money. Often, hail damage repair requires just small fixes here and there. On many rooftops emergency roof repair means just replacing a few shingles or tiles or tightening the fasteners on metal panels. But a small fix like that right away can make a huge difference.
Roof leaks don’t always penetrate through into your home and become noticeable right away. And even when they do, many homeowners hesitate to call until it’s a major drip. But it doesn’t take much moisture inside your attic for mold to grow. Hail damage repair can locate small openings that wouldn’t be obvious to the average person and stop a little water from becoming a big problem.
Shingle Roofs - One problem caused by hail that often goes unnoticed and untreated is degranulation. Shingle roofs have a coating of protective mineral granules that can be beaten away by hailstones. Bald spots allow the sun to weaken the materials. They eventually become brittle and vulnerable to leaks. Hail damage repair can replace shingles that have bald spots to prevent leaks.
Tile Roofs - Although they are tough and can last well over 50 years, when struck by a particularly large or speedy hailstone, they can crack. Damaged tiles leave your underlayment exposed which dramatically increases your chance for a leak. In this case, we simply replace the broken tiles to prevent further issues. Hail damage repair is a simple way to prevent small problems from becoming big ones.
Metal Roofs - Typically, they don’t require hail damage repair because dents and dings left behind are cosmetic issues. However, if your fasteners have been loosened or broken from hail impact, we can fix them quickly.
