Common Damage Caused by Hail

Hail is particularly dangerous, whether it comes in small pellets or large balls. The biggest problem is that much of the damage passes unnoticed at first, so it is never corrected. Homeowners discover the issue when larger concerns come up as a result of earlier storms. Instead of fixing small dents and dings or a few missing shingles and roofing tiles, it is a matter of major leaks, water damage, mold, and more. Common problems that start small and grow serious when left unrepaired include:

  • Tears in roofing materials
  • Loss of roofing materials
  • Dents, cracks, or rips in siding
  • Loss of siding
  • Damage to outdoor decks
  • Water penetration of interior spaces
  • Broken or cracked window glass
  • Damage to window seals
  • Cracks or breaks in gutters or downspouts
  • Missing gutters or downspouts
  • Lost or damaged insulation materials

Your roof is the first line of defense when weather gets fierce, and it takes the brunt of the storm. When hail comes down, even small bits are strong enough to have a major impact. Dents, cracks, and rips quickly expand, and often roofing materials vanish completely. However, these problems aren’t always immediately evident.

Without a thorough inspection by a licensed contractor, the first sign of trouble is large water stains in the ceiling. This occurs when moisture gets in after a storm has ripped or blown off shingles. Without a protective barrier, water easily penetrates the roof deck. After that, it is only a matter of time before your ceiling is soaked through. Choosing early intervention means you can head off the major issues caused by water entering your home unchecked. Completing repairs when they are still small saves you time and money.

Cracks and tears to window seals, siding, and insulation cause similar problems, letting moisture into walls. When insulation gets wet, there is a risk of mold growing, which is linked to serious health conditions. After a significant storm, particularly when hail is involved, call the experts at Dream Design Construction LLC for a complete evaluation to catch and repair problems before it is too late to file your insurance claim.

Bear in mind that most insurance companies require inspection by licensed roofing personnel in order to move forward with processing. We specialize in hail damage inspection, and we have extensive experience dealing with insurers. For your convenience, we complete all necessary paperwork on your behalf to ensure a full, fair settlement.
