Roofing problems come in all forms and happen for a wide variety of reasons. Today, your storm damage repair experts from Moss Roofing talk about the type of problems that are brought on by harsh weather elements.
Severe Granule Loss
A problem unique to asphalt shingle roofing, granule loss refers to the loss of granules embedded in the surface of the shingles. If left unchecked, severe granule loss can greatly weaken individual shingles, making the entire roofing system more vulnerable to wear and tear.
Although our roofing shingles have a high wind resistance rating, there’s still a chance that a strong gust of wind can knock out a few shingles off the roof. Missing shingles compromise the roofing system’s surface layer, so calling a roofing and gutter company like Moss Roofing to replace missing shingles is essential to prevent further damage.
Hail damage shows up in the form of recesses or dents in the roof’s surface. Although most of the hail will not leave a mark upon impact, large ones can easily cause weakened or old shingles to crack or shutter. Individual shingles that got hit by larger hailstones might have to be replaced immediately.
Getting Damaged Assessed by a Worker
Regardless of how the weather damaged your home, it’s still better to have the damage assessed by a roofing contractor like us. Aside from being better at stopping to check some details when looking for early signs of problem, an assessment made by a certified contractor will also increase the chance of your insurance roof claims getting approved.
