Hail & Wind Damage Roofing Repairs
Once hail is over half an inch in diameter to around three-fourths of an inch, roofing damage becomes a concern and warrants inspection. It is never a bad idea to get a roof inspection for hail damage.
Three Reasons to Get a Roof Inspection After a Hail Storm
- It can be very difficult to assess if there is any underlying damage caused by a hail storm. We are hail and wind experts, and we know how to best identify the hidden damages that may be in your roof.
- There is no worse time to find out that you had hidden damage caused by hail then when you are trying to sell a house. You’d be surprised at how many home inspectors find hidden damage to roofs at the very last step of a hard-earned sale resulting in an unexpected roof replacement.
- As with any serious health issue, getting a second opinion is also a good idea with roof repair. Insurance adjusters don’t always have your best interest in mind and you could be financially responsible for repairs due to crucial areas the adjuster missed.

Myths About Hail Damage
Myth: I looked at my roof and didn’t see any problems; or my roofer inspected it and there are no problems.
Fact: Roofing systems must be physically inspected by someone who has training and experience. Insurance companies send their adjusters to special training so they can properly identify hail damage to property. Unfortunately, there is not much ongoing training for the roofing or home inspection industries.
Myth: I’m not missing any shingles so I must not have damage.
Fact: Missing shingles are related to wind damage claims and can happen during a hail storm if the winds are high enough. However, hail damage is insidious in nature and may not physically cause leakage for years after a hail storm.
