Roof Damage from a Hailstorm? Who do you call first – OGW Roofing or your insurance agent?
Your friends at OGW Roofing in Tipp City, Ohio, think it’s important to know about the damage hail can do to your roofing and siding.
Hail –It hurts to get pelted by hailstones, doesn’t it? Frozen Ping-Pong balls of fury thrown mercilessly from above, hammering at anything in their path. Unfortunately, they also hammer at your roof and siding, causing damage not always visible. What protects you may now need a little help.
Hail can fall from as high as 30,000 ft and up to 120mph. Ouch! It really makes an impact (sometimes literally!) when you get hit by something like that, so can you imagine what this does to your roof and siding over time? Do you know that even the smallest of hailstones can cause damage?
Hail damage to your roof can include cracks and dents, missing pieces of asphalt or even the protective granules knocked off of your shingles. This means your shingles need replacement, as they aren’t providing the coverage they are meant to.
Your siding might also sustain damage. After a storm, you may see oxidation to your siding, a sign that it is aging and will soon need attention. Additionally, you may find dents or dimples, possibly causing gaps in the coverage. This means that the siding isn’t protecting the house as well anymore.
If your roof or your siding is damaged, it’s only a matter of time before your house starts seeing water damage and possible mold, compromising your home, your shelter from the storm.
Insurance may cover the costs of these items. However, before you call an agent, contact OGW Roofing for an assessment to see if these do need replacement or repair. Misfiling a claim can actually lead to an increase in your premium, so you should get a free estimate from OGW Roofing first.
