How to Handle Roof Hail Damage
If a big storm just hit and you noticed there was hail, there is a good chance that it could have damaged your home. If you suspect that the hail has damaged your roof, we are here to help. You have a couple different options to tell if you have roof hail damage.
Check yourself first:
If you feel safe enough to get on top of your roof, you can do an easy self-inspection. Check to see if there are loose or cracked, lifted shingles or anything out of the ordinary. Look at the pipes, gutters and attic vents for signs of impact. If you can spot these common signs of hail damage, then it’s appropriate to call a professional to get a roof hail damage inspection done.
Some roof hail damage is not easily spottable, so you might need to do a little more than just browsing the surface. If you do feel comfortable on the roof, check for marks that are larger than a dime. If there is an area with several damaged shingles, this could mean there is serious damage. One more way to see is by running your hand over the shingles to feel if there are dents in them. If you notice either of these things, you will need to seek professional help such as SMART Construction & Remodeling INC.
