Hail Damage – What to Look For!

Hail Storm

After any hail producing storm, it is very important to check your roof to determine whether or not any damage has occurred. Here are a few things to look for:

•    If safe and easy roof access is possible, check the vents as well as shingles for any damage.

•    Inspect all your gutters and rain spouts for damage or any roof debris. If you do find damage to your gutters, usually there is also damage to the roof.

•    Check inside for any damage to your ceilings and attic. Look for any leaks that could be caused by hail damage.

Is Your Roof At Risk During a Hurricane?

Hurricane season is here, so make sure you take the time to evaluate your home’s roof structure! Roofs come in many different styles and types, which results in some being more durable than others during a hurricane. Gabled roofs, structured with triangular shape profiles, are thought to be the weakest type of roof when faced with the extreme winds brought on by a hurricane. This is due to the fact that the gables are not typically reinforced enough to hold up to high winds, unless they are built correctly with proper wind code protection for that specific area. Of course, there are other types of roofs that can also be structurally unsound when being put up against high pounding winds.
