Don't let Flash Hail Storms Ruin Your Roof
Your roof is your primary defense against all the elements.
Hail damage can take years to cause roof leaks, wood rot and mold issues. A roof inspection will save you time, money and the heartache of interior damage.
Hail damage is almost impossible to see from the ground and so is easy to ignore. However, even insurance agencies understand it is easier to simply replace a damaged roof than deal with the costs of interior mold and water damage that can occur in the years after a hail storm.
A qualified roof inspection can uncover the actual damage to your home and document it in a the roof assessment report. All Austin homeowners should make this a priority!
How Hail Damages Asphalt Shingles
When hail hits a shingle, the shingle becomes “bruised” like an apple. The granules are knocked loose, the fiberglass mat cracks, and the asphalt wears away over time, causing leaks in your roof. The damage from moisture and mold can take years to appear.
How Hail Degrades Shingles over Time
- Immediate Impact causes a tear or dimple
- Granules Loosen removing protection from damaging sunlight and heat
- Crack or Tear Forms over time as asphalt degrades
- Water Leaks Through to the interior of the home
2 Big Reasons Your Roof Is At Risk
Austin homes are built to take a beating from heat, high winds, and rain. Hail is a different story.
Insufficient Impact Protection
Hail is a ball of hard ice on a collision course with your roof at very high speeds. These impacts create small craters on your roof that weaken the structure and create fractures in the waterproof layers separating the outside world from the dry interior of your home. Think of the damage that hundreds of golf balls being driven at a roof might do and you can imagine the damage even a small hailstorm can create.
Water & Mold Damage
Left on it's own, any water penetration from your roof into the attic will cause water, mold & mildew damage over time, leading to air quality issues and expensive mold mitigation & restoration efforts.
