Identifying Hail Damage on Your Roof
While the winter season is coming to an end, it’s still important to keep an eye on your roof, especially when a hailstorm hits. Failure to determine the red flags early may compromise the system’s integrity which is why it’s imperative to take proactive steps.
Hail damage can be easy to detect on your roof because it usually leaves large dents. However, other issues like blister rash can also create similar marks. KAT Construction, LLC discusses the signs you should look for:
Warning Signs to Look For
The look of hail damage differs in every roofing material. If you have asphalt shingles you’ll likely see dents without any recognizable pattern. You may also notice some black marks which indicates the granules have been knocked out. This can expose the underlayment which is a threat to your roof’s health.
On the other hand, if you have wood shingles you may notice splits that are brown or orange in color. Some of the splits may also manifest sharp edges and corners. Any of these warning signs would need hail damaged roof repair. If you leave these issues unattended, constant exposure to the elements may worsen the problem, making it costlier to address.
Importance of Quickly Addressing Hail Damage
While hail will impair the roofing materials first, it can eventually harm the entire system. Water can seep through the cracks and penetrate the underlayment, thus compromising your roof’s integrity. Even if you don’t see visible signs of hail damage, it doesn’t mean that your roof hasn’t sustained issues. After a storm, have a reliable contractor like us conduct an in-depth inspection.
