Hail, storm, high winds and other natural disasters and calamities may potentially harm and ultimately deteriorate the condition of the most exposed part of our homes, our roofings. Aside from natural disasters and calamities, various factors also influence a roof’s life expectancy and performance such as its initial design to its ongoing maintenance. It is then consistently prudent to have an expert do an intensive examination to survey the degree of the harm. 

Many times, natural disasters like Hail often damages the shingles of your roofings. Your roofing shingles have Ceramic granules that are embedded into asphalt shingles that serves as a protective external layer of the roofing’s shingles. These ceramic granules that are commonly exposed to granule loss which shortens and lessens the lifespan of the installed shingles in your roofings. However, hail damage or excessive disasters like strong storm winds accelerates the granules loss in the shingles. When hail strikes your roof, it creates soft spots on the shingles and loosens the granules. This indicates that the protective coating of your shingles is wearing away and exposing the layer to weather elements. During sunny days, the sun’s ultraviolet light will weaken the exposed spots and make them brittle. During winter, the shingle expands and contracts and can curl and crack after being weakened by hail. The exposed areas are then very susceptible to leaks and wind damage (which lifts shingles and can even tear through the roofs nails). Once a shingle is torn, it is no longer watertight and destroys the integrity of your roof. When this situation happens, it is necessary to urgently contact  us, Hail Damage Rockford IL.
