When hail is larger than 1″ in diameter, there is a good chance it can cause damage when hitting any surface. This damage can cause granular loss of the asphalt shingle. Without those granules to protect the surface below, it’s only a matter of time before the shingle fails. A metal roof impacted by hail also greatly reduces the life of the roof system, causing premature failure.
Heavy winds can cause major damage to a roof system. These winds can cause shingles to fly off the roof, siding to come loose or crack, and flashing and gutters to detach. Over time as the roof system fails, additional damage will begin creeping into your home.
Salvo can Help Troubleshoot Storm Damage
Any major weather event that has damaged your property can cause an avalanche of questions, such as:
- What is the extent of the damage to my home from this storm?
- How do I go about filing a claim with my insurance?
- Will this cause my insurance rate to increase?
- Is there even damage? I can’t see any from the ground?
- Why are so many roofing and exterior construction companies contacting me?
- How can I choose one with so many options out there?
- How much is all this going to cost me out of pocket?
Salvo can help get you the answers to these questions, as well as provide solutions to mitigate the problems.
Storm damage easily can go unnoticed by untrained eyes. And insurance companies usually only will pay for damage that occurred within 12 months of the “date of loss.” So it is important that you have your roof system assessed after heavy storms by professionals.
Salvo provides a free inspection of storm damage. After the inspection, you will receive a free roof report detailing any damage we found and our recommendations for any repairs.
