Most homeowners think that roof damage after a storm is obvious.
And sometimes it is – high winds can lift the shingles and tear them away from the fasteners. This damages the shingles beyond repair.
But other times the damage is not so clear. Hail can create holes, cuts, and fractures in shingles that may lead to water penetration. Even the smallest indention from a hail strike can cause major problems.
So just because your roof seems to be intact after a storm does not mean it’s not damaged. Many times storm damage will not be visible when looking up from the ground.
This is why expert help is ALWAYS recommended to assess a roof after a storm.
V-General contractors offers free inspections if you suspect storm damage and want to know if you can legitimately file a roof insurance claim.
