Are you a homeowner with a newer asphalt shingle roof and you recently experienced a hailstorm? The damage may not always be immediately visible, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. In this video, we discuss the importance of getting a professional inspection completed by a local and trusted roofing company after a hailstorm, even if your shingles don’t show any damage to ensure that you are taking care of your property.
Newer asphalt shingles are tightly impressed with granules, and when a hailstone strikes, it can push the granules into the mat and loosen them and slowly start to break down the quality of the shingles. However, these granules won’t fall off and expose the mat until after a few months have passed and the shingles have gone through other weather events. So, it can be easy to miss the damage occurring if you are not continuing to inspect the roof.
This is why it is crucial to have roofs inspected after storms, even newer roofs. It is essential to identify any hidden damage as soon as possible so that you can file an insurance claim before the one-year deadline that many companies have in place. After a year has passed, you will likely no longer be able to file a claim for the damage, which could result in costly repairs in the future that you are on the hook for.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your roof and your home. Watch this video to learn why getting a professional roof inspection from Centennial Roofing after a hailstorm is essential, even if your shingles appear to be in good condition.
