    Will My Hail Damaged Gutters Need To Be Replaced

    roofing gutters repair damage clc roofing

    Gutters and downspouts are generally made of galvanized steel or plastic, which means that they are generally resistant for many years and will degrade gradually, over time. But there are also special events that may require their premature replacement.

    Hail storms are such events. Regardless of the size of the hailstones, they can destroy various types of materials they hit, including metal. Damage that at first may seem only aesthetic (small indentations) are in fact vulnerable areas from now on, which will allow premature corrosion. Not to mention the obvious hail damage – cracks and holes in the gutters, caused by the impact with large hail stones.

    The safe collection and drainage of rainwater provides protection against further water infiltration and flooding of the building foundation. If there is no such protection, you can expect bigger problems in the future. That’s why you need to make sure that your gutters have not been damaged by a hailstorm and are still effective.

    Hail damage can vary depending on the type of roof and the angle at which gutters are hit by the storm. If a water leaks is not obvious after such a weather phenomenon, this does not mean that gutters have not suffered damage. That is why they must be inspected by a company like CLC Roofing Southlake area, as well as the entire roof, and replaced if necessary, to ensure effective protection of the roof and of the entire building.
