Roof Damage from Hail Needs Immediate Professional Action

By Stacy Mellete

Although quite rare in Tampa, the occasional hail storm can wreak havoc on any home. Perhaps the most susceptible part of your home during these violent weather occurrences is your roof. It doesn’t take hailstones the size of golf balls to do serious damage to your roof. In fact, even small hailstones can cause severe damage that may need extensive repairs.

Tampa roofers like us at Affordable Roofing Systems are well-aware of the damage that a hail storm can do to your home. That is why we are prepared to offer our assistance if your roof is battered by this severe weather occurrence.

We strongly recommend calling us to evaluate your roof after a hailstorm, even if the damage seems unnoticeable. These are a few of the effects of hail on your roof:

  • Damaged roofing material: even the smallest hailstones can easily crack or loosen shingles. This can leave your home vulnerable to other damage from rain or wind.
  • Water Damage: hail stones are more than just blocks of ice falling from the sky. When they break against the roof, water can seep in, causing water damage.
  • “Bruising:” The repeated impact of hail can cause the formation of small perforations that can cause water to seep in. The excessive shingle granules can buildup in rain gutters, leading to more roofing woes.

You don’t want these kinds of roof damage to go unrepaired. Not inspecting your roof immediately after a hailstorm has serious consequences. Let Affordable Roofing Systems be the one to inspect your roof.

We have the necessary tools to repair your roof when the need arises. With our materials from reputable roofing manufacturers like GAF, and our staff of skilled craftsmen, we can handle the damage your roof sustained from hail storms, and other weather disturbances.

So, remember, don’t hesitate to ask for help whenever your Tampa roofing sustains hail damage. For more information on hail damage and roof inspection, call Affordable Roofing Systems to handle your roofing concerns.
