If your home has been struck by severe weather there could be damages lurking on top of your roof! Cracked, curled, buckled and warped shingles can come back to trouble you if the damages are not fixed by a Grapevine Roofer. Now is the time to schedule a roofing inspection if you haven’t yet already this year.
The best way to know if your roof has hail damage is to have a Grapevine Roofing professional take a look at it. Nevertheless, there are warnings signals that you can look for from the ground level and if you notice any of them you may have damage to your roof. The clues to look for are:
- Accumulated shingle granules and/or pieces of broken shingles in your gutters and/or downspouts.
- Marks left behind from water damage inside your house and/or attic.
- Daylight showing through in your attic.
- Indentations or surface damage to your windows, siding, and roof.
Your roof is the chief defender for your home against the elements. A hail damaged roof loses its strength to protect your home from water, wind, ice, and snow, leaving it susceptible to a leak if left unrepaired. Many insurance companies cover hail storm damage because they understand how significant a properly functioning roof is.
Delaying an inspection with a Grapevine roofing contractor after a severe storm has passed through your neighborhood is not recommended. Most insurance policies state that it’s the homeowner’s obligation to sustain their homes and take measures to prevent leaks. Waiting until your roof is already leaking means you may be paying ALL of the costs for the needed repairs out of your own pocket.
