How can a home owner recognize when a roof system has problems?
In most cases, roofing problems are discovered after damage has occurred from a leak. However, not all leaks produce visible damage immediately. Some leaks can occur for up to a year before showing any signs of damage. To avoid this hidden problem, it is important to have your roof inspected periodically and especially after harsh weather events by a qualified roofing contractor. Periodic inspections often can uncover cracked, warped or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof system problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas. For example, you may see excessive granules running down the downspout, shingles in the lawn, or excessive curling and cupping of the asphalt shingles on the roof or on flat roofs you may notice cracks or holes in the seams of the roof or flashing. Exposed nail heads are another place where water can get in and cause damage.
How I do I know if I have hail damage to my roof? Can I tell from the ground?
Rarely. Many times it takes getting up on the roof and then a trained eye can spot roofing hail damage. You also will want any pipe boots, valleys, drip edge, skylights, chimney caps, chimney flashing, wall flashing and siding to be looked at by a trained professional. From the ground tell-tale signs of hail damage can be seen in dented gutters and downspouts, A/C fins, windows and screens, fence, deck and painted wood surfaces.
What are the requirements by my Insurance Company to replace my roof in the event of hail damage?
In the Dallas - Fort Worth area, the requirements vary from with each insurance company. The norm is that if there are 6 to 10 hail hits on a 10’ x 10’ square area (100 SQ FT) on 3 out of the 4 directional sides of the roof, then the roof has to be replaced. If damage is found then the insurance company has to pay for the roof replacement. Call Accent Roofing & Construction and let us initially inspect your roof to determine if there is enough damage to file the claim and we will assist you through all the steps of the insurance claim process to make sure it goes as smooth as possible for you. We will also help you receive maximum benefit from your insurance policy.
