Detailed Answers and Information About Hail Damage
How does hail damage a roof
Asphalt shingles are designed with protective mineral granules that block the UVs of the sun and protect the underlayment. Hail damage can cause severe granule loss, material removal at the edges of the shingles, and penetration to the shingles; all of which prematurely age the life of the roofing structure.
Can I tell if I have hail storm damage to my roof from the ground
Usually, you cannot spot hail storm damage to your roof from the ground. You will be able to easily spot damage to your siding or gutters; and it is safe to assume that if there is visible damage to your car, windows, siding or gutters, your roof most likely has hail storm damage as well. Since hail damage is not always immediately evident, it is wise to contact a local, professional roofing contractor in Oklahoma, who specializes in roof hail damage to evaluate the extent of damage after a storm.
If I think I have hail damage what should I do
You should immediately call Destiny Roofing, or another reputable roofing company who specializes in hail storm damage, to come inspect your roof. You should also call your insurance company and ask for an adjuster to perform that same inspection. Destiny Roofing will help you to document the hail storm damage and we will work directly with your insurance company to see that the hail damaged areas are repaired or that your roof is replaced, if needed.
Will I need to get my roof replaced right away
Not necessarily. A new roof may not be required, depending on the hail storm damage. You might only need a roof repair to replace some of the damaged shingles. Even if you don’t need a complete roof replacement, this is a roofing repair job that should be left to the professionals. Replacing a single shingle should be done with the utmost care so the surrounding shingles are not compromised.
If you do need a roof replacement, however, many insurance companies have a statute of limitations of how long a hail claim is viable. Most of them only allow up to a year after a storm to file a claim. If you have experienced a loss such as hail damage, it is wise to seek the help of a local, reputable Oklahoma roofing company to take care of the problem in a timely manner before it leads to other associated problems.
Why would my insurance company replace my entire roof
The purpose of homeowners insurance is to protect the homeowners against losses due to damage that is beyond their control. In most cases, hail damage will result in a full roof replacement because the insurance providers know that a new roof is more cost-effective than replacing all of the valuable contents inside the home after the hail damage caused the roof to eventually fail.
