We are getting numerous phone calls from customers that are concerned they may have roof damage. This is largely due to the recent hail and high winds in Birmingham over the last few days. From what we’ve experienced this year, most of our clients have had a lot of wind damage to their roof. This was especially in the month of January. As result, many people have called us recently due to roof leaks. Now with the widespread hail damage to roofs in the Birmingham area we are getting more calls. So what do you do when you have wind or hail damage to your roof?

Be cautious of any “roof specialist” that claims you have roof damage without inspecting your roof. Be super cautious and run away from any “roofer” that wants payment upfront! Many people of been scammed because they paid a roofing contractor part of the money upfront. It is also more difficult to get the roof contractor to comply when you have already paid them more money than what they currently have in the roof.
What does hail damage do to your roof and why does it matter?
Hail damage can affect your home in a variety of ways. Hail impact to asphalt shingles tend to loosen the hard granules that make up the top surface of the shingle. If the hail is large enough, it can damage the fiberglass mat or go right through the shingle! When this happens, the water shedding ability of the roof is compromised. Once there is a small indention in the roof shingle water can begin to slowly leak through the shingle. The felt underlayment under the shingle then becomes soft and the decking underneath is exposed to the elements. This can start a chain reaction that includes rotten decking, damaged insulation, damaged or water stained ceilings, and more.
What does wind damage do to your roof and why does it matter?
Wind damage can affect the overall appearance of your home due to missing roof shingles. Did you know that missing tabs or shingles on your roof exposes the nails and decking to the weather? Nails are exposed when shingles are missing from your roof. This exposure will allow water to leak through the roof and into the home. Also, missing shingle tabs expose the area where the two shingles below meet. This exposure will allow the roof felt to be exposed to rain, which will only resist water for a few hours. If you have wind damage to your roof or missing tabs call Capstone Roofing and one of our roofing specialist will inspect the roof and complete a brittleness test to determine whether or not the roof can be repaired or whether or not you have enough damage to file and insurance claim.
