West Texas weather is wild and unpredictable. Spring and summer storms often bring high winds, rain, and even hail. Hail of any size can cause damage to your property. After a hail storm, it is important to assess your home, and especially your roof, for damage. Accent Roofing is here to help. We can help you determine the extent of damage and whether you will need to replace your roof.
After a hail storm, it is necessary to analyze how well your roof can continue to function properly. Obviously a roof that has leaks is not protecting your home. However, other types of damage can put your home at risk if they go unnoticed and unrepaired. Even small hail can impact your roof at high speeds and cause damage. After a storm, you should visually assess your roof for damage. Large storms often cause damage that is easy to see. Granules from roofing shingles may litter the ground around your home. Indentations may be noticeable on your roofing shingles. Roofing shingles may even be missing. Smaller hail may leave behind damage that is more difficult to notice. Accent Roofing of Amarillo is dedicated to making sure your roof is sound and your home is safe. We can help you assess storm damage. Our staff is highly trained to notice what a homeowner might miss.
Different types of roofing show damage in different ways. Metal roofs show dents. Dents from hail damage can make it more difficult for water to flow off of the roof. Traditional shingles can crack and leave open spaces. Open spaces allow water to seep underneath eventually leading to leaks. Cracks also weaken roofing and allow wind to tear away tiles. Stone and clay surfaces may develop cracks or become chipped. It is important to consider your roof’s history when assessing storm damage. Older roofing or roofing that has been repaired could sustain damage that requires a new roof in order to properly protect your home.
Always keep in mind that not all damage results in a leaky roof. After a hail storm, it is unwise to assume your roof is undamaged because you do not have any leaks. Do not wait for a leak to appear before assessing your roof. A quick glance at your roof will not always be enough to spot damage resulting from a storm. Small damage can lead to big problems down the road.
