Pearland Roof Repair; How To Detect Hail Damage
Roofing in Pearland
Did you know that 1" hail can cause severe damage to your roof? Even 1/4" and 1/2" hail can cause damage. If your home was hit by hail this year you should have it inspected by a professional Pearland Roofing expert. NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) says that 1" sized hail falls around 20 mph and bigger pieces can reach speeds up to 100 mph. Hail falling that fast can be lethal so do not try to go outside in it without proper protection.
Knowing if you have hail damage can be difficult for homeowners, so we have some tips on what you should after the storm passes. However, the best thing to do is to call your local Pearland roof repair pro and have them look at it.
Remember, Safety Is Number One!!!
Once the storm passes, inspect your property for any of the following signs of damage;
- Cracked windows and broken glass
- Dings, dents, or cracks in your siding
- Broken gutters and downspouts
- Protective shingles granules accumulated in the gutters
- Water in the basement
Take pictures and make note of any damages you find. If hail is still present on your roof or the ground, be sure to include that as well. It is not recommended to get on top of your roof unless you have the proper safety equipment and experience. Instead, contact a roofer in Pearland for peace of mind!
Make Repairs When Needed
Whether it's a broken skylight, window, water intrusion, or whatever it is, do not ignore it and again document everything! Retain all your receipts if you have to purchase tarps or plastic to cover any exposed areas such as a hole in your roof or broken windows. You may be reimbursed depending on your insurance policy coverage.
