Take pictures of this damage because it will help you when you file a claim with your insurance company.
Pay close attention to the items around you. Tree limbs may have come loose, telephone poles may have fallen, or other objects may be unstable near your home. These can be very dangerous and if you notice anything that could cause an immediate threat to your home, you need to call 911 and then a roofing contractor right away.
Take a look inside your home. Do you have any wet spots on the ceiling? If you have access to your attic, shine a flashlight in there and do the same thing. This will be able to tell you if any water got into your home because of roof damage.

A few things you can look for from the ground or a small ladder, are your gutters, siding, and A/C units. Taking a look at these three items, you can see if there is any serious damage or denting that has occurred. If you see that, you likely have some on your roof as well. On many homes, there are vents that let air out of your house, skylights, and chimneys. Hail can hit every single one of these and cause a lot of problems. The biggest thing that we worry about with hail damage is future water damage. When hail hits hard enough to leave marks, it is actually taking off pieces of the shingle and damaging the integrity of the shingle itself. This can lead to water getting in and cause problems down the road. Your best bet is if you think you have hail damage, ask about it at your next roof inspection or call a roofer out to take a look and file an insurance claim.

Roof Wind Damage
Roof Wind Damage
During big storms, wind can get very intense. WInd does more damage than you would think when it comes to your roof. We all like to think that our roofs can withstand crazy weather like this, but the truth is, sometimes it can’t. If your roof has already been damaged in some way or is getting close to the 20-year mark, it is more prone to things like wind damage. Strong wind can lift shingles right up off your roof and take several of them with it. The same goes for tile roofing because it is thicker and there is a better chance that wind gets in between tiles and lift it up and off. Once a piece of roofing comes off, you should have it repaired and replaced right away to not mess up any other parts of your roof along the way. You should also have the roof inspected to make sure the integrity was not compromised by the wind as well. Give us a call at 972-439-1145 and one of our roofers will come and take a look.
