Hailstorms Are Worse Than you Think
Hailstorms in the mid-west can get rough. Many homeowners pay hundreds of dollars each year to repair damage caused by hail. It is important that you check up on your roof after a storm and look carefully for signs indicative of hail damage. It can be risky climbing the roof on your own so get help from a roofing professional. Your insurance company will cover the expense but make sure to contact them as soon as possible and present pictures as proof of damage. Hail causes the shingles to lose granules which compromises its durability. An insufficient granular topcoat leaves the shingles open to UV damage. Sometimes the impact can also crack open the shingles leading to serious leaking issues unless addressed on time.
