The most obvious sign of hail damage after a storm is the dents and dings in your vehicle. Most people don’t think to look at their roof, siding, or gutters after a hail storm.
Hail damage to your roof creates blemishes called bruises. When this bruise is created, it can crack the fiberglass membrane of the shingles and allow water to seep into your home. This can happen slowly over time and by the time you notice it, the damage has been done.
It’s hard to tell if your shingled roof needs to be replaced after a hail storm. Let the hail damage specialists at Minnesota’s 1st Choice inspect your roof and gutters to determine the best course of action. Contact us today for a thorough hail damage evaluation by our trained and experienced inspectors.
When you think of wind damage, most of us think of tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe thunderstorms. But it’s not just prolonged, severe weather that can cause wind damage to your home. Moderate intensity winds that gust 50-75 miles per hour can lodge debris under your shingles, causing damage to the underpinning and structure of your roof. Over time, this can cause loss of roofing materials and damage to the structural integrity of your roof and rafters.
If you have black or brown stains on your roof, this is due to decayed debris laying on your roof. Homes with overhanging trees can see these stains more often from leaves, branches and animal waste that collects on the roof slope. This decaying debris can grow lichen or fungus that traps moisture and hastens the wear and tear on your roof.
Another factor that can accelerate the wear and tear on your roof is when a gutter spills over onto lower roofs. this can leave different colored stains and remove the granules and roofing material, causing leaks.
To remedy the staining and wear on your roof, trim away dead material from overhanging branches and clean gutters on a regular basis. It’s also a good idea to regularly check your roof for debris, especially if you have a low slope to your roof.
Rafters support the roof of your home and transmit the weight of the ceiling down to the walls and beams below. Rafters can be exposed in the attic of your home, in the living space with special architectural features, and are an important part of maintaining the safe structure of your home.
If you think there may have been some damage to your roof or rafters, call Minnesota’s 1st Choice for an experienced inspection of your rafters.
