Roof Hail Damage
Roof hail damage is common in Northeast Ohio. In fact, there have been thousands of homes and businesses that have experienced this damage first hand. While many people may not think about the damage a hail storm can cause to their roof, they may experience the lasting effects later when more serious problems arise.
While it could be difficult to determine if you have any roof hail damage, or the extent of the damage from the ground, CJS Exterior Maintenance can provide a roof inspection to determine what repairs may be needed or if a roof replacement is a better alternative. You can also look for dents in your gutters or downspouts, or if you had damage to your siding or windows. These signs may mean that you also experienced damage to your roof.
After a hail storm, it is important to conduct an inspection of your roof. If you are not comfortable with being on the roof, or are uncertain what to look for, it is best to call the professionals at CJS Exterior Maintenance. They will look for roof hail damage, such as damage to vents, ventilation, and shingles.
Roof hail damage may include dents, chips, and cracks in your vents and covers, which can cause leaking and other serious issues with ventilation throughout your home. Dented gutters and downspouts can cause water backup, which can cause wood rot, moisture problems, and other leakage problems. And, let’s not forget the damage hail can cause to the shingle itself. It may not look like much but knocking granules off a shingle takes a lot of force, which means that the integrity of the shingle has been compromised. It may not leak today but will develop over time.
The good news is that most insurance companies allow storm damage, and specifically hail damage claims. This will help save you some money, and when you use an expert in repairing storm damage, such as CJS Exterior Maintenance, you are sure to get the job done right.
