how storm damage can affect your home

If you have ever been through a storm with large hail, you were concerned about damage to your home immediately. The roof of your home endures much stress during a hailstorm and the damage might not be evident.
In rare occasions hail can be large enough to break into the interior of the home but much more typical is subtle damage that greatly accelerates the degradation of your roof causing it to fail and leak years after the storm has passed through.

After a violent hail storm

It is important to take an assessment of your home. Check for broken windows, holes in siding and missing shingles. If this damage is evident and you should hire a contractor or cover the damage with plywood or tarps right away.
In almost all instances, your insurance will cover the cost of hiring a contractor and any needed materials. 

Doing the work, yourself

If you do the work yourself, you should be reimbursed for your time as you were acting as the contractor. However, even without such obvious damage your roof could be compromised. Hail damages a roof by forceful impact that breaks the mat, which forms the core of the shingle. Additionally, the impact removes a large percentage of the granules that protect the asphalt from the sun. This breakage causes the shingle's water imperviousness to be compromised allowing water to penetrate into the shingle. This ongoing water intrusion and solar induced degradation eventually causes the shingle to fail and allow water to reach the roof's wooden decking. Over time, water will cause the wood to rot and allow the roof to leak. Once the roof is leaking, your home is under constant assault and is sustaining ongoing and accumulating damage. If you are fortunate, the leak will occur in an area that is obvious within living space. This frequently shows up as a brown stain on the ceiling and prompts you to being investigating the source of the water. 

Delayed repairs = Increased Damage

In many instances, the water will run into the interior of a wall or other areas that not readily observable. This damage will then become evident when a large section of wall crumbles or another major part of your home fails. These repairs can be very expensive and inconvenient! Getting a professional roof inspection
To avoid all of this trouble, do not assume that your roof is okay simply because you cannot see any damage. Hail damages pose a lot of threat to your house; a professional inspection on your roof is all you need. In fact, it is the most advisable thing to do.
