How To Handle A Hail Storm

 In Uncategorized

Being able to grapple with natural phenomena and their impact is a key part of understanding how roof restoration in Colorado works, however, you can’t always apply a universal approach. For example, the impact a hailstorm has on your roof is different than what you may see from a downed tree or from heavy rain or from a hurricane. It’s important for you and your roofing professionals of choice to understand the differences.

How To React

Unlike, rain, you may not necessarily see a leak right away to work with, especially if you have a textured roofing material like architectural or dimensional shingles. Where hail comes into play is causing a series of shallow dents on this layer of roofing material. If left unchecked, this could damage the waterproofing layer. At that point, even a slight puncture could create a hole for rainwater to flow through in the future. In some cases, the damage may be more cosmetic, like clay shingles being broken by hail.

In some cases, even if the roofing itself isn’t affected, you can take a look at other areas that show signs of hail damage. For example, heavy hail can dent and damage gutters, and if not fixed, this may affect the flow of water through the gutters. If this water comes into contact with the siding or foundation, it causes damage over time.
