Hail Damage Strikes

Schedule Your Free Inspection

Hail damage can be much worse than you think!

Hail may seem small, but the damage it causes can be significant. A  hail storm can harm roof shingles and other roof elements, leading to damage within your home. You can keep your home safe with hail damage roof repairs from AmeriPro Roofing.

What Should You Do If You Suspect Hail Damage?

If you suspect any sort of damage to your roof, follow these steps:

  • Inspect your property: Look around the exterior of your home and assess the damage. Are there dents in your gutters? How is the siding of your house? If there is significant damage to other parts of your home, your roof probably has damage, too.

  • Call a professional: Have a reliable roofing company do a hail damage roof inspection. The team at AmeriPro Roofing can safely evaluate your roof and give you an accurate account of the damage.

  • Contact your insurance: Most homeowners insurance covers hail damage to roofs, so you’ll want to contact them to review the damage. Be sure to document the damage for the claim.

While your insurance company will perform its own inspection, we recommend you also have a professional roofing company perform an independent inspection to ensure proper diagnosis of the issues. At AmeriPro Roofing, in addition to inspecting your roof, we will also check vents and other fixtures that may require repair or replacement.

What Type of Damage Should You Look For?

The specific types of damage you should look for after a storm depends on the size of the hail that fell:

  • ¾ inch: This size of hail can lead to damage like dislodged granules, paint scratches and small dents to vinyl siding or metal fixtures. It may not affect your roof, but it’s a good idea to contact a professional just to be sure.

  • 1 inch: A hailstone that measures about an inch can bruise shingle underlayment and cause significant damage to gutters and siding. If the wind speed was high during the storm, you’ll want to have your roof checked for damage.

  • 1-2 inches: A hailstone between 1 and 2 inches can cause severe damage with or without wind. If you discover your siding or gutters are broken or torn, contact a roofing company to assess the damage.

  • 2 inches: Any hail measuring 2 inches or more is almost certain to cause damage. Torn siding, cracked windows and broken metal fixtures will indicate your roof is damaged as well.

If you don’t notice any damage to your roof or aren’t sure of the extent of the damage, our expert roofing inspectors know exactly what to look for and how to identify areas to improve. We’ll perform a complimentary roof inspection to let you know the extent of the hail damage to your roof shingles.

What’s The Most Common Hail Damage?

Hail damage restoration most commonly requires damaged shingles or panels to be replaced. Damaged shingles may have:

  • Broken edges
  • Bruises
  • Punctures
  • Granule loss

These may seem like minor cosmetic issues that only need simple repairs, but any broken shingles will need to be replaced to ensure the safety of your home. Any type of crack or tear will leave your roof exposed to the elements, accelerating aging and increasing the chances of water leaks.

We do not advise homeowners to climb on their roofs to look for signs of hail damage. Instead, look for these signs of damage from the ground after a storm passes through your area:

  • Dings on your garage door or shutters
  • Holes or dents in your window screens
  • Dings to your mailbox, electric meter, AC unit, or grill
  • Dents on the top of your car

What Our Customers

Are Saying

“First of all, I couldn’t be happier with all the professionals at AmeriPro Roofing. For example, from the time they gave me my roofing estimate, to the way they explained every single thing they were going to do. As a result, their service was outstanding. And, the repairs went exactly as they promised, plus they stayed on schedule and answered every question I had. And I had a lot of them. Finally, they treated me like a human being, instead of a person who filled their quota.”

“We wanted to improve the look of our home with new siding. But, we had no clue what colors to use, or what materials would work best. Our contact at AmeriPro Roofing was so patient. And above all, treated us with respect and kindness. We had a lot of questions. And we got the right answers every time. I was nervous about this project, but the vinyl siding is beautiful, and the color we chose just pops like you wouldn’t believe. In conclusion, the service was worth every penny.”

“Our roof needed replacing, and I had called a bunch of other roofers near me. In the first place, some were really pushy. And others treated me like I was stupid. In contrast, the guy at AmeriPro Roofing was a total pro. In fact, he was a straight shooter, listened before he talked, and told me he couldn’t give me any kind of estimate until he did an inspection. After the free inspection, I was sold, and I figure to get another 30 years out of this brand-new roof. In any event, I couldn’t be happier with AmeriPro Roofing.”
