Hail and strong winds can cause significant damage to your roof, siding, and gutter system. When this happens, your home looks worse, becomes more vulnerable to water damage, and loses value. As one of the top local roofers, we strongly suggest calling us immediately if you see signs of storm damage. We can help you with our roofing, gutters, and siding services. Here are the things you need to know about storm damage:

Storm Damage

How Storms Can Damage Your Home

Hail can crease, dent, or knock your gutter system loose. This leads to water overflowing from your gutters, damaging your landscaping and saturating the soil around your house. Hail can also crack and break holes in your vinyl siding, or dent or crease your aluminum siding. Strong winds can also blow away pieces of your siding. Hail and wind can also cause significant damage to your roof system. Hail can cause your shingle matting, roof vents, or flashing to break, causing roof leaks. The wind can also tear shingles off your roof decking.

The Importance of Storm Damage Repair

It’s important that you schedule a full gutter, siding, and roof inspection after a storm because you need to repair storm damage as quickly as possible. Storm damage negatively affects your roofing, siding, and gutter system’s performance and appearance. It also decreases the value of your home and can render the warranties of your roofing, siding, and gutters null and void. You also need to repair storm damage if you intend to refinance your property in the future.
