When shingles are blown off of the roof or a tree has fallen on your house, you need immediate storm damage repair. But often damage is only apparent to the eyes of a trained professional who walks your roof inch by inch. Loosened shingles, lifting shingles and hail pitted shingles are three conditions that require immediate attention but can go unnoticed.
Storm Damage Roof Repair
If your home has been through a serious storm that produced high winds, driving rain or hail, call us at One Call Roofers without delay. We will provide an inspection and assessment of any damage and perform emergency storm damage repair. Waiting can be very costly as the next storm is often not far behind.
Our team specializes in emergency roof repair. In Alabama, nature can hurl many varieties of severe weather at a home. These can range from brutal thunderstorms that produce high winds, driving rain, lightning and hail, to hurricanes and tornadoes. Summer’s intense heat and sun can weaken shingles which can then be lifted and blown off by strong winds. Improper attic ventilation can make materials degrade prematurely and catch you by surprise when the skies turn dangerous. Aging roofs are particularly susceptible to wind and hail.
When Should You Call
If your home has experienced a severe storm you should call us right away to see if your shingle roof sustained damage. If you notice any falling shingles, roofing bits or particles that flowed from the downspout, or raised or curled shingles, you should call without hesitation. Water will eventually find its way into the house though any breach in the barrier.
Wind Damaged Roofing
Shingles that are in a weakened state from age or weather exposure are easily lifted and broken by high wind gusts. Once the shingles are gone the underlayment is exposed. This barrier is not designed to withstand the elements on its own and will quickly deteriorate allowing water intrusion. We specialize in emergency storm damage repair where shingles are broken or missing.
Horizontal rainfall is commonplace in the Birmingham area. This wind driven rain can get under the shingle layer and beneath the underlayment in places where the rooftop is already compromised, installed incorrectly or degraded due to age. When storm damage repair is needed for a newer roof that failed, improper installation is usually the cause. Our professional roofing services can fix improperly installed surfaces and repair any leaking areas.
Hail Storm Damage Repair
Hail is the greatest enemy to the composite shingle installation. A hail storm of even moderate proportion and stone size can cause significant roof storm damage. This can often create the need for complete roof replacement. Shingles become chipped and might lose their protective mineral coating. Many homeowners do not notice the damage from the ground. After a year or so, when the sun-weakened shingles begin to break, the time limit has likely expired to file an insurance claim. That is why it is important to give us a call immediately after a hailstorm. We specialize in dealing with insurance adjusters in the tricky area of hail damage repair.
