Recovery from a hail storm is never easy, but a thorough inspection after a storm and knowing what to do when storm damage occurs can help you avoid some of the usual pitfalls associated with hail and roof damage. 

Below, we talk about some things to watch out for after the storm, filing a hail damage insurance claim and the impact missing or damaged shingles could have on your home. If you are unsure whether you need a hail damage inspection, down below will be listed ways on how to spot damage on your roof shingles after a hail storm:

What to Look for in Your Roof After a Storm

Search the roof for dents: Hatches and other metal surfaces can easily be identified by shingles and shingles.

Metal roofs are the easiest roofs to detect damage, but metal, clay and slate roofs can also be difficult. The reason hail damage on a roof is worse is that after some time the rain washes off the granules released by the hail storm and exposes the asphalt underneath. 

Metal roofs are easier to detect than roofs because they are more resistant to hail damage. Slate can be cracked by hail, for example, although the cracks are more random than wood shingles. With hail damage to the roof, dents can be seen, so assessing hail damage on metal roofs must have been the most difficult.

Look at the drop to see if granules are coming out of the shingles, but do not act as if the gutters are clean because they were loaded with mineral granules during the storm.

If you do not have obvious holes in your roof due to hail damage, you will need a hail damage inspection to find out how to proceed with the required roof repairs. If you follow these signs, take a closer look at the shingles if the roof has been damaged by the hail. Only after a roofer has documented the extent of the roof and storm damage, the best approach for your roof can be determined.

You will also learn how to detect if you have had hail damage to your roof, what you are doing and check if objects indicate it. Once you know the shape of the shingles and the size of the holes in the roof and storm damage, you need to identify the actual weak points and problems. If you find holes or other signs of damage caused by hail on the roofs of your home, you should consider a hail damage roof inspection.

What to Do When You Notice Hail Damage

Let me show you how to deal with these kinds of roof problems in order to avoid further damage to your roof. You can also repair hail damage on the roof with the help of a roof repair specialist or a professional roofer.

If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by a hail storm, call your hail repair roofing team. Your roofer can determine whether the roof is in urgent need of repair or not. After a hail roof inspection, they can estimate roughly how much the repair will cost and determine how much hail damage the roofs will need to replace in your specific situation. Our roofing company, Mr. Happy House, has over 30 years of experience in dealing with hail damage and have extensive experience in the field of roof repair.

If your shingles are damaged, your hail damage repair company can tell you how many shingles are needed to fix the problem.

If the roof is a roofing shingle, the amount of hail damage on the roof depends on the number of layers of shingles. Once the weather calms down after a storm, one of the first steps to ensure that the roof is not damaged is to arrange a viewing appointment with your local roofing company. Choosing a roofer can be difficult, especially if you need to fix hail damage to roofs. That’s why it’s important to call a local hail repair company like Mr. Happy House to check roofs for hail damage.

Tips on Roof Insurance Claims

Before the insurance company approves a repair or replacement of the roof, they need the opinion of a professional roofing company. There are a few basic things you can look for that point to hail damage to your roof. 

In some cases you may find cracked or missing shingles on the roof, but if you notice a randomly distributed circular area, missing granules or other signs of damaged roofing materials, you will need to have your roofs inspected by a roofer who will carry out hail repairs.

If you notice further damage to the roof, such as cracks or cracks in the walls, there are steps you can take as quickly as possible after a hail storm such as roof replacement or roof repair in hail damaged areas.

With all of this said, it’s important to get a good homeowners insurance company for your home before the next hail storm hits, for information on the best home insurance companies, read this article here.

"Mike was great to work with. He explained all that needed to be done to install a quality roof that would last. Had other quotes but other contractors were not as informative and did not include everything that was needed.
