Specialized Roof Repair Service for Wind & Hail Damage
Metro Atlanta typically experiences only a few wind and hail storms per year, but it only takes one wind and hail event to cause significant damage to your roof. ImproveIT! of Atlanta, LLC doesn’t want your property and belongings to be at risk, and our roof repair specialists can make sure your roof is performing like it should in every weather condition. ImproveIT! of Atlanta has years of experience replacing roofs that have been damaged by wind and hail, so if your home has recently been through a major weather event, our roofing experts will respond quickly and professionally to restore the integrity of your roof.
Even if you don’t notice any roof leaks after a wind or hail storm, that doesn’t mean your roof hasn’t been damaged. While pea-sized hail probably won’t cause damage, even modest-sized hailstones falling from the sky at high velocities can compromise the integrity of your roof shingles. You might not even see the effects until months later when you suddenly notice the water stain on the ceiling or a puddle on the floor after a non-eventful rainstorm. By that point, however, the cost of the damage will have already multiplied. That’s why after any significant wind and hail event, you should have ImproveIT! of Atlanta conduct a basic roof inspection. We can reveal unseen signs of wind and hail damage and determine whether you need a roof replacement.
Tips for Dealing With Wind and Hail Damage
If a wind or hail storm produces stones larger than 1/2-inch in diameter (dime-sized or larger), your roof may be at risk. The following tips will help ensure your roof stays protected:
- Beware of door-to-door “hail damage” experts. Significant hail storms sometimes attract so-called “experts” who come into a neighborhood to prey on unsuspecting homeowners. Never hire someone to repair hail damage without properly vetting them and making sure they are licensed, bonded and fully insured. You should also never pay for hail damage services up front.
- Err on the side of caution. Remember, damage to your roof may not be immediately evident after a hail storm. Schedule a roof inspection with a local roofing company like ImproveIT! of Atlanta to check for signs of damage.
- Repair hail damage as soon as possible. If you wait until a leak develops before investing in roof repair services, you’ll also have the cost of repairing water damage that results from that leak. You’ll pay less in the long run by repairing the roof before leaks occur.
