Don’t Let Hail Damage Ruin Your Roof

The Impact of Hail on Your Roof

We recently just had 2 huge hail storms in a month in Colorado, and with these storms comes damages to your roof. During severe storms, the shingles can be damaged and may require replacement or repairs. Basically, what you find after a hail storm is ‘’ small craters’’ all over your roof known as hail damage.

Don’t leave hail divots unattended as these little holes promote the natural erosion of shingles. When it rains, water runs over those imperfections causing the shingles to rust at a faster pace. Eventually, the water will destroy the shingles and penetrate the bottom layers, finally creating a leak.

Replace Your Storm Damaged Roof

Even though hail damage must be addressed as soon as possible, beware. Don’t rush to replace your roof as most insurance companies will give you a minimum of one year to replace your storm damaged roof. Make an educated decision and avoid storm chasers that will take advantage of the situation and push you to decide quickly. Plus, these unofficial roofers offer no warranties after completing the job and they will get out of town to the next storm area. Don’t risk the quality of your roof. Contact professional roofers to assess your roof and help you repair or replace it.
