Emergency storm damage Roof Repair

The largest hail size reported in Southeast Pennsylvania was 4.5 inches (the size of a grapefruit). On average, Pennsylvania experiences golf ball-sized hail (2 inches or less). Imagine Tiger Woods driving a thousand golf balls at your roof and you’ll have a good idea of how a severe hail storm can harm roof shingles and even skylights, gutters, vent hoods, etc.

Following a severe storm, your first roofing concern is whether or not the storm caused leaks that might damage your home’s interior. Even if you don’t find leaks, there still may be significant hail damage. That’s why it’s important to call an experienced roofing contractor from Certitude Home Improvements to check your roof for signs of hail damage. We thoroughly inspect your entire roof before suggesting the appropriate roofing repair or replacement services.

How hail damage affects asphalt roofing materials

Roof inspections following hail storms have educated roofing contractors about how hail damage affects different roofing materials in different ways.

Asphalt shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life.

Roof hail damage can also vary greatly from one part of the roof to another. This variation is primarily due to the wind that drives the hail. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at 90 degrees.

Common roof problems from storm damage

Water damage is one of the most common signs that your roof has been damaged from a storm. If you see discoloration on your ceiling, it could mean that water is getting in through your attic. You may also have water damage in your attic if you notice:

  • Damp insulation
  • Discoloration
  • Bulging walls or ceilings
  • A musty smell
  • Mold growth
  • Cracks in the ceiling

Quick repairs for hail damage to prevent roof leaks

High winds that often accompany hail storms can cause blow-off damage that should be repaired right away.
