Hail Damage to Your Roof? Get a Professional Roof Inspection!

The one constant to weather in Rochester, MN and the surrounding area is that it can vary tremendously from month-to-month and even day-to-day! So far for 2021, we've been blasted with weeks of heat and very little rain. And we want to talk about hail damage? Considering how quickly a warm and sunny afternoon can descend into the chaos of a nasty and damaging thunderstorm, it's always a good idea to have information available to help in the event your roof becomes damaged after being thrashed and bashed by hail!

Why Have Your Roof Inspected?

In specific, we want to talk about fiberglass shingles and why it's imperative to have a roof inspection conducted as soon as possible after a hail storm. Hail can severely damage a newer fiberglass-shingled roof in one part of town, but a few blocks away, a roof with older shingles can go undamaged.

How would a homeowner know what to do? You can call your insurance company and they may send an inspector to check your roof. You can also contact a professional roofing company to send an inspector to conduct an independent evaluation of your roof and, if you wish, provide an estimate for damage repair or complete replacement.

What Does Hail Damage Look Like?

Hail damage can manifest itself in many ways on fiberglass shingles. With so many variables and nuanced types of damage, how is a homeowner to understand all the different types of hail damage? Our opinion - they shouldn't have to! Besides, what homeowner wants to climb a ladder and safely inspect every square foot of their pitched roof? Did we say safely?
