YOU CAN’T ALWAYS SEE HAIL DAMAGE FROM YOUR LAWN
Our Core Roofing Expert will meet your at the designated time that is set for your damage inspection by our office. Upon meeting you our Core Team Member, they will introduce themselves and ask you for 15-20 minutes to begin and complete their assessment of your property. Our Certified Roofing Expert will fine tooth comb your home for damage, from top to bottom. Starting with the roof inspection, they will shoot a live video of all of your roof damage, any current concerns that they have about your roof, and recommendations for your project based on our high grade materials and local township codes to make sure that your roofing is the best possible fit for your home and lines up with all township codes and regulations.

Each step along the way from your roof down to your gutters, siding, and windows, wherever damage may be, we will find it and write the proper estimate and recommendations to give your insurance company.
HAIL DAMAGE, DO I HAVE HAIL DAMAGE ON MY ROOF?
Roof damage isn’t always visible from the ground.
Recent storms may have compromised the integrity of your roof. Damage that goes unnoticed can have serious consequences for your home in the future. It’s important to have your home inspected by an expert that knows how to identify damage.
Hail Exposure and Damage
Hail damage can range from large, highly visible dents and tears to almost undetectable indentations or unnoticeable granule damage. Even small amounts of damage can compromise the integrity of the roofing system, leading to deterioration of the shingles months later.
Normally, if a shingle indicates outward damage, the underlying components may be compromised and affected to some degree. On damaged roofs, the hail impact may affect the embedment of the granular surfacing in the asphalt top coating. This loosens the granules, potentially allowing the granules to separate from the coating layer and wash off the roof. Without the granule surfacing, the asphalt top coating is exposed to ultraviolet radiation from ordinary sunlight and will eventually deteriorate, exposing the fiberglass substrate and creating the potential for a leak. On severe hail damage, the fiberglass substrate may be physically broken further, compromising the weather integrity of the shingle. Without visible damage there is no real way to be sure how much damage shingles have encountered. Outward damage may not appear until months or years later.
