Hurricane & Wind Roof Damage Repair

Heavy rains and hail aren't the only kinds of weather that can cause roof damage. Wind events, especially tropical depressions and hurricanes, often have no mercy and leave quite a mess in their wake.

Basic repairs following a wind event usually involve filling in a cracked shingle or replacing individual or groups of shingles. If heavy wind finds its way under a shingle, and that shingle comes loose in any way, there's a good chance it will fly off and need to be replaced.

If this happens and the actual roof - usually plywood sheeting - is exposed, this means the underlay, that synthetic layer between the roof and the shingles, is gone and must be replaced. Tar paper and roofing felt are similar in that they shed water, and before we replace any shingles, we thoroughly check to ensure this vital layer is still effective.

What Should I Do After A Hail Storm?

While the actual size of the hail stone causes damage to roofs, the damage also depends on:

  • Wind speed and direction
  • Condition of the existing roof
  • Materials of the existing roof

Smaller "pea-sized" hail might not cause visible damage, but if it happens frequently over a period of months, asphalt shingles will lose granules and will weaken over time. We will check your gutters after a hail storm; if there's a significant amount of visible granules, that's an indication that hail damage roof repairs could be more involved.

As the size of the hailstone increase, so too does the likelihood of roof damage. Asphalt shingles will begin to show bare spots or what appear to be "dents" after a hail storm. This obvious damage can be addressed either with single or multiple shingle repairs, though it is possible a full roof repair could be necessary.
