TYPES OF DAMAGE
Hail Damage: Hail can damage your roof, siding or gutters without any visible signs from the ground. Hail impacts your roofing shingles causing them to suffer a loss of protective granules greatly reducing the life of your roof. The loss of granules on your roof will expose your shingles to UV rays causing serious deterioration within a short time. siding, gutters and fascia can be dented by hail causing cosmetic damages often seen only in the right light. This is where our FREE INSPECTION is priceless, letting you know what damages if any you suffered from the storm.
Wind Damage: Winds in excess of 50 miles an hour can lift your shingle causing the seals to break and possibly fracturing the shingles as it folds upwards. The newly damage shingle will then flap in the breeze and often tear off and fly away. To the homeowner it may look as though you lost a couple of tabs and everything is ok, when in reality your roof might be permanently damaged and in need of replacement.
