The most common cause of damage to home exteriors is severe weather including hail storms and strong winds from tornadoes or hurricanes. Severe weather can strike at any time, and often the damage caused to your home cannot be seen by the naked eye at ground level. Often many homeowners assume that if they cannot see any noticeable effects after a storm their home was not damaged. This is not the case.
When hail hits asphalt shingles it can cause soft spots or bruising and will loosen the hard granules that make up the surface of the shingle. This not only decreases the life span of the roof system but also leaves your home vulnerable to future damage like water intrusion. Hail and strong winds can also damage your home’s siding and gutter systems.
The manufacturer’s warranty on many products like roofing and siding is void if the structure has been hit by hail or been impacted by severe weather, which is why it is imperative to file a claim with your homeowners insurance. Failure to file a claim in a timely manner may relieve your insurance company of their responsibility to repair your damaged home.
