Signs of Hail Damage on a Roof?

You cannot fully determine the amount of hail damage on a roof from the ground, however, there are some signs that a trained eye can point out and help determine if there may be more damage up top.

The presence of one or more of these may indicate a situation where the homeowner needs a full roof replacement instead of a simple roof repair.

Here are the key things to look for:

Dented gutters, gutter screens, or downspouts

This is not always the case, but many times, if a roof has significant hail damage up top, the gutters will have some impact damage. Be on the lookout for small impacts as well as heavy dents.

Damage to siding and windowsills/casings

You can also check the home’s siding and windowsills/casings for dents, dings or other signs of impact. If there’s significant damage to the roof, there will most likely be damage to these as well.

Damage to air conditioners or other outdoor items

As Mentioned previously, it’s important to check every area of the home for hail damage. In addition to offering a quick glance sign of further hail damage on the roof, a damaged air conditioner may qualify for insurance replacement.

Damage to decks or painted wood surfaces

Decks and other painted surfaces surrounding the home may have sustained hail damage. If you see chipped paint, it may be the result of hail impact.

The roof

Once you’re up on the roof, there are a few things to look for; chimneys, skylights, Vents, other features, and shingles need to be checked

Check out all the roof vents and pipe jacks to look for any damage. Look for dents, dings, chipped surfaces, etc.

The last, but most important thing to check is the shingles. Hail damage to roof shingles is what gets the roof replaced. You’ll never get a solid insurance claim without shingle damage. Hail damage to roof shingles can be very obvious or very difficult to uncover. It takes a trained eye to spot hail damage to roof shingles, so if you’re a homeowner and unsure, contact Royal Crown Roofing.

Hail damage can look like a few granules have come loose on the roof, There’s not necessarily a hole in the roof, you’d be surprised at the force it takes to knock the surface materials off of a shingle. When this is discovered, the integrity of the shingle has been compromised, and a water leak can develop over time. Even the smallest hail impact on a shingle can lead to a roof leak.

Now, you should have enough information to determine whether or not the home will need a roof replacement.

Here at Royal Crown Roofing we inspect and advise you on your best course of action, be it a small repair, a new roof or nothing at all, sometimes the damage can be superficial and require no work, that is why it is always best to call an expert if you’re unsure.

Gutters

Gutters aren’t just there to be cleaned, like most other aspects of a home, gutters combine form with function, and a well-maintained gutter system has the potential to increase your home’s curb appeal along with preserving its structural integrity.

A new gutter can ensure that runoff water from your roof won’t fall into certain areas around your home and help assist with flood prevention.

An inch of rainfall doesn’t sound like a lot,  but when it falls on an average-sized roof, it adds up to 1,900 gallons running down the eaves. That’s a lot of water with no guided path that can cause a lot of damage if your gutters aren’t up to the task of controlling it.

If you’re starting fresh, there is a lot of shapes, sizes, and materials to choose from. The best option for most of us is metal; copper, zinc, steel or aluminum. Metal gutters are durable and need relatively little care and will surpass any viynl.

Tips to protect your home from storm damage

Tips to protect your home from storm damage

The average home goes through a lot of punishment day to day, particularly your roof. The amount of exposure they get can damage the structure and leave you open to problems like leaks or holes, particularly during a storm.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your home safe from the storm and avoid a potential disaster:

Replace Problem Shingles

Your shingles are the first line of defense for your roof. Because of this, it is also likely to get damaged, if left unrepaired it can lead to further problems in your home. Replace any cracked, bent or missing shingles immediately to avoid a quicker deterioration, Royal Crown Roofing also provides repairs on damaged roofs.

Get Impact-Rated Windows

Your windows can be cracked by flying/falling debris and their frames can also deteriorate and let drafts in, this can not only weaken your windows but also increase the cost of keeping your home warm/cool. To keep yourself safe, get high-quality windows with high-impact ratings the higher the rating indicates how durable the window is, which can prevent or minimize damage from wind, and debris.

Repair Weather Sealing

Whether it’s for your doors or windows, it’s always good to get your weather sealing repaired/replaced. If it gets old or damaged, it can become the source of drafts and water leaks and also increase the cost of keeping your home warm/cool.

Clear Out Your Gutters

Storm damage from water is minimized when it is flowing through your gutters. However, debris like leaves, branches, and granules from your shingles might pile up and clog your gutters. With nowhere to go the water can pile up and create roof leaks, make sure you clear out your gutters before and after a storm so it can allow water to flow away from the roof.

Here at Royal Crown Roofing we inspect and advise you on your best course of action, be it a small repair, a new roof or nothing at all, sometimes the damage can be superficial and require no work, that is why it is always best to call an expert if you’re unsure.
