If your area has received hail large enough to possibly cause damage to your roof, you may want to examine other objects at ground level before calling your insurance company or pulling out your ladder. Hail strong enough to damage a roof will also cause damage to nearby cars, wood fences, shutters and/or exterior siding. A direct impact of hail on a shingle is more damaging than that of a glancing blow.
Hail Damage can create leaks in your roof as the cracks and bruises caused by the hail impacts expand and contract over time. It can cause MOLD to start growing when those cracks start to leak. Hail can cost you time and money when you are ready to sell your house and the home inspector finds hail damage to the roofing, siding, gutters and A/C system and recommends replacement by the seller.
After a hail storm, it is a good idea to call American Builders for the fact that the sooner you have the damage taken care of, the less damage other areas of your home may see. This also means that you’ll be less likely to sustain even further damage to those areas that have seen slight damage the next time a hail storm rolls around. You want to look at all of these areas of damage, but make sure you call American Builders even if you do not see signs of damage because the signs can be as small as a crack in the shingle that is hard to see.
American Builders will be there for you throughout the entire process, working alongside your insurance adjuster to inspect your property and determine the full extent of damage and restoration necessary.
