Hail Roof Damage Protection Tips
According to the Insurance Information Institute there were 4,610 major hail storms in the United States in 2018. The destruction caused by these 2018 storms cost homeowners more than $2.7 billion in insurance deductible or roof repair costs. If a hail storm strikes, your roof is susceptible to damage in a variety of ways: cracked or broken skylight, torn off gutters, loosened or removed shingles and much more. However, there are ways you can protect your roof and prevent destruction if a minor hail storm hits the Philadelphia area. Read below Reliable Roofing Company’s best tips to prevent hail roof damage.
Tips to Prevent Hail Roof Damage
Trim Trees Often. All trees surrounding your roof should be kept trim at all times, but especially during the storm season. During a hail storm heavy limbs can easily break apart and fall onto your home, loosening shingles, cracking the fragile material and even damaging windows. Any dead limbs or trees touching your roof must be removed immediately.
Repair Existing Roof Damage. Any roof with preexisting damage, whether from storms or wear-and-team, should be repaired before another hail storm hits. Missing or cracked shingles leave your roof susceptible to extensive damage. Call 267-418-5522 for professional roof repairs in Philadelphia.
Upgrade your Roof’s Material. Using the proper, high-quality, industry-standard roofing materials ensures your roof holds up against hail, wind, rain, snow and sun damages for many years.
Have your Roof Installed by a Professional. There are thousands of DIY videos and articles on the internet teaching you how to do anything and everything yourself. You can learn how to bake a pie, replace sheet rock and even install your own roof. But keep in mind, how your roof is installed dramatically affects its lifespan and your family’s safety. Be sure to call a professional roofing company for installations and repairs.
Schedule a Roof Inspection. For preventative measure, our Philadelphia roofers maintain homeowners have a professional roof inspection annually. Regular inspections allow us to detect and repair damage at the first sight, rather than holding off until it becomes a major and costly issue.
