Damage by Storms

Every spring we see severe storms that cause roof damage from hail or tornados.  Hail has been known to cause tremendous damage to roofing materials, costing up to $1 billion each year in insurance claims. Even a small hailstorm can cause damage to a roof. Sometimes this damage is not obvious immediately after the storm to a homeowner,while different types of roofing materials will experience different kinds of damage. That is why it is so important to have a roofing expert like Kellogg Roofing inspect your roof after a strong storm to assess the damage and handle your insurance claim. Damage left unrepaired can mean disastrous leaks and compromise to your roof structure and the interior of your home.

Inspections

To help you determine if your roof damage qualifies for an Insurance Claim, our professional roof inspection will include the following items:

  • Roof Vent Caps—Inspecting the roof vent caps will determine if hail has struck.
  • Downspouts—Shingle granules in the downspouts can determine if there is significant shingle loss and whether there is severe weathered or damage.
  • Shingles—Random pattern of varying sizes of bruises shows hail damage. Besides bruises, the shingles may have holes in them. Holes in shingles can be from either heat damage or hail damage.
  • Leaks—Leaks after a hail storm are sure indicators of damage to your roof.  A hail damage roof may not leak immediately but the damage could still be severe.

Signs of Damage

The effects of hail strikes on Asphalt Composition Shingles vary according to the conditions at the time of the hailstorm. If hail is accompanied by rain, the rain will cool the roof, making the asphalt harder.  Hailstones striking rain-cooled, hard asphalt are more likely to loosen or displace granules. We work in Franklin, Murfreesboro, Lebanon, Hendersonville, Madison, Millersville, Hermitage as well as Knoxville, Gatlilnburg and Nashville, Tennessee.
