Hail DamageBruised or Damaged Shingles
In the Metro East, hail is more common than most people think. During thunderstorms, chunks of ice ranging in size, hardness and shape can come down in the form of hail. Damage from hail varies based on weather conditions, but generally it is your roof that takes the most damage from hail storms. At H&F Exteriors, we specialize in hail damage repairs for shingled roofs. We will inspect your roof and advise you on the best route forward if an insurance claim is necessary.
How will I know if I have hail damage?
- Granules on your shingles are falling off
- Shingles are bruised, punctured or fractured
- You see damage to metal vents, flashings, AC units or the siding of your home
Why do I need to fix this?
When the granules from your shingles are loosened, the asphalt layer underneath is exposed to the elements. Exposure to UV light from the sun can make your shingles brittle, compromising their performance over time. Additionally, exposed shingles can cause leaks, which leads to electrical and mold damage inside your home. The sooner hail damage is repaired, the less likely your home will experience interior damage.
If your home is damaged from hail, your insurance company will cover the cost of repair. At H&F Exteriors, we specialize in helping you maximize these insurance benefits. We work directly with insurance companies on your behalf to minimize time and paperwork on your end. We are certified in Xactimate software, which is the same software insurance companies use to process claims. Our expertise with insurance claims will help you navigate this process quickly and easily.
