ROOF STORM DAMAGE

Damage hail can cause

Hail can cause a tile roof (terracotta and concrete) to crack and break, often the tile corners will break where the hail impacts. It is important after a storm to have your roof inspected for damage as it may sometimes not present itself till later through leaks or loosening of tiles. If you have a tile roof that has been damaged and the assessors have deemed a replacement is required you have the option of choosing to replace your roof with tile or with metal.

If you have a metal roof, the dents and the loss of the top layer of paint in your metal roof can compromise the life of your metal roof sheets and flashings. Notable dents can lead to early corrosion from dirt and water ponding in these cavities, fracturing of the paint which can create structural weak points.  Where the sheets of metal overlap on low-pitched metal roof sheets, the hail impact on these laps can cause them to deform/warp and water ingress can occur on the lap joints.

We see a lot of people taken advantage of during times of need. People offering their services and not being qualified for the job they are offering.

Always use a licensed roof plumber – a builder is not a roofer and their work will not be warranted unless they hold a valid roof plumbing license.
