What Every Homeowner Needs To Know About Hail Damage

Hail damage often presents itself as small dips or breaks in a roof. The size of all these things can vary and fall completely at random. Even if you do not see indentations on the shingles themselves, you may still find proof elsewhere. If you find depressions in gutters, siding, skylights, or chimney caps, it may be worth taking a closer look at the roof. Not having visible proof of hail damage doesn’t mean it’s not there.

With large commercial buildings, we often see flat-topped roofs. This style of roofing can lead to pooling and leaks if not cared for appropriately. When assessing a new roofing project, inspect the current flashing, gutters, and drain pipes.
Certain areas or sides of an industrial roof could show water damage or signs of increased drainage flow. When irregularities in the roof are found, it will be considered in the redesigning process.
