Hail Damage to your roof can compromise the integrity of your entire roof system. Hail damage is caused when hail stones dislodge the granules from the surface of the shingle which exposes the asphalt underneath. The colored granules are adhered to the surface of the shingles in order to protect the asphalt from sun exposure, and when that protection fails, the integrity of the shingle is compromised. Over time, this damage could develop into serious problems. Even new shingles that barely show the damage can be considered ruined. Many times the hail will loosen the bond between the granules and the asphalt and as the compromised areas are exposed to wind, rain and sun they will begin to fall off and leave the asphalt vulnerable to UV exposure and deterioration.
Many roof leaks occur around flashing, furnace stacks, plumbing vents, valleys, chimneys, skylights or missing shingles. Most times these types of leaks can be repaired without replacing the entire roof. We generally recommend applying water sealer to these areas, in addition to flashing. Even the smallest leak can cause considerable damage to the integrity of your roof. A little water can cause major problems and the trouble may extend farther than what you can see.
