As the weather warms up, storms move in. Is your roof ready? We’re your hail experts when you need Oviedo hail damage roof repair.
When you think of Florida weather, you may not think of hail, but we have a pretty active hail season between March and July. Hail in our part of the country averages about one inch in diameter (about the size of a quarter), but the largest hail recorded in Florida was 4.5 inches – the size of a grapefruit! That’s not the kind of citrus we get excited about around here.
Protecting your roof from hail and having a plan for Oviedo hail damage roof repair are smart ways to safeguard your investment.
Prepare For Storms
Roof Inspection – Schedule a roof inspection before the heart of storm season to see if any damage needs to be repaired. Our roof inspection team at Advantage Roofing can spot any areas of weakness on your roof that could lead to significant problems if you add hail to the equation.
Repair Damage – When hail hits your roof, it may just bounce off and fall to the ground. If there are weak spots on your roof, however, hail can cause even more damage. It’s important to evaluate your roof now and have repairs taken care of to make it more likely that it can withstand a potential hail storm.
Clean Your Gutters – It’s a nasty chore, but when you allow leaves and debris to build up in your gutters, rainwater can settle in and cause pooling. Gutters can also get rusty without proper maintenance.
Inspect Your Gutters – Dented and damaged gutters and downspouts won’t allow water to run effectively off your roof and to the ground.
Even if a storm seems minor, it’s a good idea to take a walk around your home after it’s over to evaluate the condition of your property. If you see leaves, limbs, or other debris on your roof or the ground, your roof may have sustained damage.
Asphalt Roof Damage – Wind and rain can wash off the protective layer of granules on your shingles. If you see a substance that looks like sand or pepper at the bottom of your downspouts, you need a professional roofer to inspect your shingles. Hail can cause more serious damage to your shingles, and you may need more extensive Oviedo hail damage roof repair after a storm.
Metal Roof Damage – Wind and rain won’t have much impact on your metal roof, but if there was hail in last night’s storm, it could have caused dents and other damage. When your metal roof loses structural integrity, it can be more susceptible to water getting in between the sheets and into your home.
