Wind or Hail Storm Damage? Premier Home Renovations has you covered
How does hail or wind damage the house?
Noticing wind & hail damage to your home may not always be as obvious as you’d think. Sometimes the untrained eye can overlook signs of serious damage, so it is extremely important to have a qualified professional inspect your home after any severe weather.
Common signs of roof damage consist of:
- Missing shingles
- Dark spots or bruises on shingles
- Cracked or broken shingles
- Granule loss
- Lifted shingles with broken glue seals
These can all lead to leaking which can result in serious water damage, mold formation or wood rotting and compromise the structure of your roofing, causing it to collapse.
What to do After a Storm
If your roof is leaking, it is important to prevent additional interior damages. Premier Home Renovations offers emergency tarping and cover up services. Oftentimes, hail and wind damage is difficult to gauge from the ground. What appears to homeowners as minor damage, such as one or two shingles missing, will compound into total roof damage down the road.
Premier Home Renovations representatives are all well trained and experienced at inspecting homes for storm damage. Countless times our representatives find damage that is missed by both homeowners and insurance adjusters.
Examples of Hail Damage:
Signs of Wind Damage
The evidence for wind damage can range from missing shingles, which can be seen from the ground, to lifted shingles with broken glue seals.
Asphalt shingles adhere to one another utilizing a strip of adhesive called a glue strip or sealant strip. When High winds break this seal, debris and dirt are blown into this glue area. This is like taking a piece of tape, running it along the floor, then turning around and trying to stick it to the wall, only having it fall back to the ground.
These shingles will often not re-seal. It is very important to have Premier Home Renovations inspect your home after any major windstorm to assess damage. Having worked in countless hurricane and wind storm areas, Premier Home Renovations representatives are well versed in identifying wind damage on homes.
