Tips on Preparing Your Home For Hailstorm DamageBy Stacy Mellete
Hail attacks your roof in different ways. For instance, the impact of falling hailstones can easily crack or loosen shingles or roofing tiles, making your roof deck vulnerable. Hail that breaks against your roof can eventually turn to water that will seep through cracks in your roof. Meanwhile, excessive impact from hailstones can wear down your roof in time, requiring you to seek storm damage restoration.
At Affordable Roofing Systems, we specialize in handling hail damage. Here are three helpful tips that will help you minimize hail damage on your roof.
Inspect Your Roof
Hire a professional roofing contractor like us to perform a thorough roof inspection on your roof. By doing so, we’ll be able to spot and identify existing roofing issues that can make your roof vulnerable to hail damage. We’ll also provide you with a complete report of your roof’s overall status and recommend roofing solutions that will address your roof’s condition.
Conduct a Roof Repair
A roof repair will become necessary if we see that your roof has sustained serious damage. Doing so will extend your roof’s service life and ensure that it’s in top shape before any hailstorm hits your home. Rest assured that we’ll patch up any existing damage your roof may have for optimal performance.
Replace Your Roof
For roofs that have sustained massive damage, a roof replacement makes for an ideal option. We offer roofs that can withstand hail damage. Our metal roofs, for instance, are resistant to rain, hail, and other severe weather conditions. They won’t chip, crack, or curl like shingles, retaining their form and beauty for years. Being a GAF® Master Elite™ contractor also lets us provide you with the brand’s impact-resistant Timberline® ArmorShield™ II shingles.
