Hail Damage To Roofing Shingles in Warrenville, IL
- Hail damage to asphalt shingles: Shingles can break, have cracked tabs or get crushed or dented. Hail dents can result in shortened shingle life
- Hail damage to wood shingles: Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
- Hail damage to slate roofs: Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.
Hail and Your Siding
Hail occurs throughout the year and can cause damage to your home’s siding. Dents, cracks and holes in your siding are indicators of hail damage. Unlike damage to the roof, hail damage to siding may require immediate attention. Yet, with the wide variety of siding available, the effects may vary. When hail strikes vinyl siding, it will not typically leave a dent. However, if the siding is a few years old, it may have lost some of its flexibility. A crack may occur more often in older vinyl siding. Unlike vinyl siding, wood and metal siding will show dents. These will be visible and depend on the size and impact of the hail. Additionally, the paint will crack in wood siding.
Hail And Your Gutters
If a roof has significant hail damage up top, the gutters will have some impact damage. Pay attention to your gutter and other water runoff systems. Gutters can be severely damaged in a hail storm. Look for dented gutters, gutter screens, or downspouts. Make sure you describe your gutter damage if they are not fixed they can spell big trouble at a later date to your home.
