Types of Storm Damage
Hiring a professional Charlotte roofing contractor after a storm is of the utmost importance. In addition to identifying visible damage from the storm, an expert roofer has the equipment to check subsurface damage such as hidden leaks, moisture, and other similar issues.
Common Types Of Storm Damage Include:
- Hail damage – Spring and summer can produce hailstorms that damage the roof, siding, and gutters. The damage is rarely visible from the ground. Hailstones impact the shingles making bruises that can lead to leaks if not properly identified and repaired. If left without repair, this can cause severe damage to your property so it’s a good idea to let a trained professional like Merritt Roofing perform an on-roof inspection.
- Wind damage – North and South Carolina have winds strong enough to damage roofs many times throughout the year. Not seeing missing shingles does not mean your roof is free of wind damage. Oftentimes, the wind will crease the shingles making them susceptible to leaking. Creased shingles and torn roofing tabs are not always visible from the ground, so it’s wise to let our Charlotte roofers walk your entire roof during an inspection.
- Tree damage – High winds, heavy rains, or lighting can cause trees to uproot or fall on the roof. Tree branches can also be blown onto the roof, penetrating it and causing leaks. Scuffs from tree branches and flying debris often go unnoticed and can cause leaks that are costly if they are not addressed quickly. Let us help you and perform a free roof inspection.
What Size Hail Will Damage A Roof
Hail in general can be damaging to your roof. However, larger hail that is 2 inches or more in size can leave more obvious damage than hail that is an inch in size. Hail that is half an inch or smaller will typically not have as negative of an impact on your roof if it is in good condition. If you are unsure if your roof has suffered any damage following a storm, look for the following signs that indicate a repair is needed.
How To Spot Hail Damage On Roof:
- If you have a metal roof look for small divots or indentations in the roof
- If you have an asphalt roof look for cracks, missing pieces, or fractures in the roof
- If you have a tile roof look for breaks in the material
- Check the flashing of your roof for nicks or dents
- Inspect your gutters for any deep impressions or dents
While some signs of hail damage are clearly visible, other damage may be hidden. That is why it is imperative you consult with a professional roofer who can perform a thorough inspection and provide you with the necessary repairs.
