Hailstorms can wield significant damage to your roof, siding and windows. In today’s post, Colonial Remodeling LLC, a leading hail damage repair company, discusses everything a homeowner should know about dealing with the aftermath of a damaging hailstorm.
Signs of Hail Damage
The tell-tale signs of hail damage can be found in different areas of your home. These signs include bruised or loose roof shingles, dents on gutters and downspouts, broken skylights, a cracked chimney cap and dented window screens or frames.
You should never ignore any of these issues–even if they seem minor. Without prompt attention, this type of damage will escalate and cause bigger headaches later on. As soon as you spot signs of hail damage, immediately call your trusted roofing company for storm damage repair.
Dangers of Undetected Hail Damage
Some hail damage goes unnoticed until it becomes a major problem. These are issues only the trained eye of a professional can see. Undetected hail damage could result in excessive roof leaks, compromising the ventilation of your attic. After a hailstorm hits your neighborhood, you should have a professional conduct an inspection of your home to ensure everything is in order.
First, schedule an inspection to determine whether the damage on your exterior is due to the weather and not simply lack of maintenance. Next, you’ll be given the list of repair costs covered by your insurance.
