Was your home or property recently affected by wind or hail storms?
After a Storm
If you now have a leaking roof because of storm damage, it is extremely important to prevent interior home damages before matters become worse. At Amstill Roofing, we recognize the importance of protecting your home, which is why we offer emergency cover and tarp services. It is hard to judge the roof damage without actually seeing the roof, so don’t let “minor” inside damage keep you from receiving a free roof inspection from a professional roofing company in Houston.
Even if you notice just one or two shingles missing, this can grow into total roof damage as time goes on. Amstill Roofing is experienced at inspecting homes for roofing storm damage and we are willing to show and share our knowledge during a roof inspection. Our experience also helps us to navigate the insurance process quickly and efficiently, getting you the best roof repairs available.
How Do I Know If I Have Roof Damage?
Some Signs To Look For
If you can see damage to the siding or other damage to your home, then you probably have roof damage as well.
Hail storms powerful enough to damage cars will also damage your roof. If cars in your neighborhood were damaged by a storm, you should have your roof inspected for damage before leaks or other problems arise.
Is your neighbor getting his roof repaired? A storm will likely cause just as much damage to your roof as it did to your neighbor's roof. We can get your roof repaired and protect your home from further damage with our one day repairs and replacements.
Types of Shingle Damage
- Missing granules – This happens when hail impacts your shingles. Depending on the duration and sizeof the storm, it can remove the granules of your shingles. The granules are the top layer of protection. Once they have been knocked off, your roof is susceptible to more damage.
- Bruising – This is caused by the hail impact. It takes individually testing each area to see how badly affected the shingles were. The damaged area will feel soft when you press on it.
- Circular cracking – Hail can leave odd tear drop looking circular shapes that smash and embed the granules on your shingle. This damages the fiberglass layer beneath the asphalt, thus making the shingle destroyed and in need of replacement.
If you don’t think there is any hail damage to your roof because you don’t see it from the ground, think again. Obviously golf ball sized hail or larger could break through your roof or cause bruising, but there is usually other types of damage you may overlook if nothing comes crashing into your home. The shingle integrity can be damaged, causing a decrease in your roof’s longevity. If hail comes with high winds or lasts over a few minutes, small-sized hail can create severe damage to your roof shingle and degrade protective granules. Losing shingle granules will significantly reduce the lifespan of your roof and can expose the glass based center of the shingles to UV rays from the sun. Deterioration of your roof shingles can occur in a short period of time. Always have your roof inspected after a hail storm, just to be safe.
