Can a Hail Storm Damage your Roof?

8/22/2022 (Permalink)

Here in Northern Kentucky we don’t usually get a lot of hail when the strong storms roll through, but every once in a while we get a surprise hail storm.  We usually check out our cars and the parts of our property for damage, but do you check your roof?  Hail storms, even small ones, can cause significant damage to your roof.  Large and small hail can damage shingles leaving holes and gaps in the roof that can lead to problems in the future.  So what should you look for after a hail storm?

1.   Roof damage.  Check to make sure your roof covers, shingles, and any drainage system are not damaged and still intact.  Hail can also damage skylights, solar panels, and HVAC systems so check for any missing parts, dents, or scratches.  You also want to make sure that everything is working properly and call a professional if you notice any problems.

2.  Cracked or missing shingles.  While shingles make the roof of your home business look very nice they also have a very important job.  Shingles are what help protect your roof from water getting into your space.  If shingles are missing or cracked they need to be replaced quickly to help prevent any further damage

3.  Water leaks.  If your roof has been damaged during a hail storm then it can lead to water entering your home or business.  Sometimes you may not be able to see the damage done to your roof, so be sure to check your attic after a hail storm.  Water can start to leak in places that you don’t see and could lead to more damage and mold if not treated in a timely manner.  

If you suspect that your home or business has experienced any damage during a hail storm be sure to call the professionals to help inspect the damage and create a plan for fixing the problem.  SERVPRO of Campbell County is always available to help with your storm needs.
