While it can be a difficult task to have your roof repaired when it suffered heavy hail damage, mild damage due to hail also has to be detected in time, if you don’t want it to cause major issues down the line. Left unchecked, hail damage can easily lead to water damage that might even affect the underlayment and internal structure of your roof, leading to the need for some major renovation work that can cost you a lot of money.
The first thing you have to do when you suspect your roof has suffered hail damage is to check for leaks. When it rains, if the walls of your attic or your ceiling ends up showing visible signs of leaks, that’s the surest way to know.
Of course, leaks don’t always make it to your interior walls. So it’s important to also check the integrity of the roof. For that purpose, you will need a ladder, safety harness and essential safety recommendations from a Southlake roofing contractor expert. It’s important to get on the ladder and inspect your roof firsthand. Make sure, however, that you never step on the roof itself while it’s still wet and that you follow all safety recommendations from the roofing expert you consult.
Additionally, if you feel that you’re not up to the task, it’s important to leave this job to the pros. Contact your local roofing service, and have them send over an inspection team that can assess the state of your roof and provide you with their recommendations.
