Homer Glen residents are familiar with the severe spring and summer storms that bring plenty of hail, which damages roofing and siding materials. While most of the severe hailstorms occur in July and August in this area, years and years of repeated hail, regardless of the severity, can take a toll on your roofing and siding system.
Whether it’s an asphalt shingle roof or a cedar roof, each will show signs of damage that will indicate the need for repair or replacement. The same is true for siding materials. Fortunately, you’ve got VIS Exterior on your side, as we have the experts you can trust to inspect your roof and siding to determine the best course of action based on your needs alone. If you’re looking for a contractor you can trust, you’ll find it with VIS Exterior.
Expert hail damage inspection services for Homer Glen
Professional inspectors have an eye for things the average homeowner simply can’t see. At VIS Exterior, we know where to look for the most common and least common roofing problems and we have the eye to spot anything amiss on all parts of a roofing system, from shingles to flashing, caulking to gutters and downspouts.
Unlike contractors who specialize only in roofing or only siding, our experts have vast experiences with both, so when a hail storm rolls through Homer Glen, we’ll look at both and make an accurate assessment of the damage.
Siding damage repair from hail & wind
Hail and high wind take a major toll on siding, regardless of what type it is. While most vinyl siding today is built to withstand winds of up to 110 mph, add flying debris into the mix and your siding can take a real beating that will likely lead to the need for repair. The damage will often present as dents, cracks and breakage. The worst storms will actually strip the siding off the home and require immediate service.
Speaking of immediate action, it’s important to call in a professional to inspect the siding following a significant storm. What might look like minor damage can actually be significant, which means should another storm come through, you risk further damage and moisture leaking into the interiors of the home.
We used Val and the VIS team to repair some storm damage to our roof and siding. We decided to re-side the whole house instead of repair the 2 sides with damage and Val was very helpful with helping us decide which siding options would be best for our home. The team was very efficient and professional and Val himself did some of the major structure repairs that were needed. We are very happy with our new siding and even our neighbors love the color. We will definitely call Val for future roofing and window replacement needs.
Hail damage roof repair on asphalt shingle and cedar roofs
Knowing what to look for is important if your asphalt shingle or cedar roof is going to last its expected life span. Whether it’s major damage because of one big storm or if it’s damage related to years and years of exposure to hail, having a roofing contractor out for an inspection is crucial.
Hail damage to asphalt shingles
Repeated contact with hail will cause the protective granules on asphalt shingles to loosen and fall off, often collecting in the gutters and/or in the downspouts. This can create a balding effect, which makes the shingles more prone to denting, puncture and leaks.
When you partner with VIS Exterior, we’ll determine the extent of the damage and make an assessment regarding the best course of action – repair or replacement.
Hail damage to wood shingles
When the hail is large enough and accompanied by high enough winds, the durable wood shingles on your home will suffer damage.
Some of it might only be cosmetic in nature, but to truly determine the extent of the punishment, VIS Exterior will thoroughly inspect your cedar. In some cases, minor cracking will morph into splits, which means you run the risk of moisture getting through the protective layers.
Hail and high winds are two of the biggest threats to the integrity of your roofing system. And while materials today are built to last, repeated punishment and years and years of exposure to wind and hail will eventually wear down your roof. With VIS Exterior on your side, we’ll make sure your roof will last as long as possible.
