Hail and Wind Storm Damage
Roofing * Siding * Gutters
Did My Roof get Damaged after the Hail Storm?One of the most common questions we get after a storm is, “Did my roof get damaged after the hail storm?” Many homeowners do not realize that hail can “damage” your roof even when you cannot see ripped or blown off shingles. Small divots or indentations not visible from the ground can take years off the life of your roof shingles. Even small hail can have a damaging affect on your roof. The only way to be sure is to have us do a free inspection of your roof after the storm. Insurance companies are very aware of the damage hail can do, and will in many cases pay to have it replaced.

We recommend the complete tear off of your old roof… at no extra charge!
We highly recommend the complete tear off of your shingles down to the plywood. Over time the underside of an older roof may produce moisture resulting in mold build up. When new shingles are installed over existing old shingles, we are not able to inspect to see if the plywood sheathing has been compromised and if the sheathing has rotted out in areas of the roof. The other advantages of tearing off your old shingles are (1) The new shingles “lay” smoother and look better, (2) It is much less likely that high winds will blow off the shingles, (3) The new shingles wear longer when they are not nailed through the old shingles, and (4) You do not have the excessive weight of 2 or more rows of shingles. And the good ﬁnancial news is we do not charge additional money to take off and haul away your existing shingles.
