Signs Your Home Sustained Friendswood Roof Hail Damage
We are in peak hail season, which lasts until May. As we are in the midst of the rainy hail season, it doesn't hurt to know the signs of Friendswood roof hail damage so you can act quickly to safeguard your roof. In this article, we will discuss common signs of hail damage as well as how to proceed after a hail storm.
Gutters and Downspouts
Hail primarily inflicts damage on structures by denting them due to the force at which the hailstones are falling. Contrary to what most homeowners believe, a small piece of hail can inflict damage. In fact, hailstones as small as a quarter are capable of damaging your gutters and downspouts.
We install multiple types of roof shingles on Friendswood homes, each of which is able to withstand different levels of storm damage. Hail damage to your roof shingles will show up in a few ways, but mainly by chipping at the granules that serve as the top-most layer of your roof shingles. Typically, if hail has damaged your roof shingles, you may spot shingle granules in your gutters as well as dents and chipped spots across your roof.
What To Do After Your Neighborhood Has Experienced A Hail Storm
Once a hail storm hits, some steps may need to be taken:
Friendswood Hail Damage Roof Inspection
If a hail storm occurs in your area, then we recommend you first contact us for a free roof inspection. Inspection after any storm is crucial to ensure that if there’s any damage, you address it quickly. However, if you aren’t trained or have the appropriate equipment, climbing onto your roof may be risky, so it’s better to let us examine your roof.
Friendswood Roof Repair And Roof Replacement
Once we complete our inspection, we will speak with you to discuss what, if any, damage has taken place and what the next steps may be. In most cases, a few Friendswood roof repairs will do the trick, but sometimes the accumulation of damage over the years results in the need for Friendswood roof replacement.
Whichever the case, Amstill is proud to be your go-to Friendswood roofer for all of your roofing needs. We look forward to safeguarding your roof this spring!
