Hail Damage to a Roof: How to Identify and Fix the Problem

Hail storms are frequent in Georgia. Hail can cause significant damage to a roof, leaving homeowners with the burden of dealing with costly repairs. If you’ve recently experienced a hailstorm, it’s essential to inspect your roof for any signs of damage. In this post, we’ll discuss how to identify hail damage to a roof and what steps you can take to fix the problem.

Identifying Hail Damage to a Roof

Hail damage can be challenging to spot, especially from the ground. However, there are some common signs that you can look for, including:

  1. Dents in the shingles: Hailstones can create dents in the shingles, which can lead to cracks or holes. These dents can be challenging to spot, but they can cause significant damage to your roof over time.
  2. Granules in the gutters: Hail can knock off the granules on the shingles, which can accumulate in the gutters. If you notice a large amount of granules in the gutters, it’s a sign that your shingles may be damaged.
  3. Cracks or holes in the roof: If the hailstones are large enough, they can create cracks or holes in the roof. These openings can allow water to seep into your home, causing water damage.

What to Do if You Have Hail Damage to Your Roof

If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by hail, the first step is to contact a reputable roofing company. A professional roofer can inspect your roof and provide you with a detailed report of the damage. They can also provide you with an estimate of the cost to repair the damage.

When choosing a roofing company, it’s important to choose a company that is licensed, insured, and experienced. A reputable roofing company will have the expertise to identify all the damage and ensure that your roof is repaired correctly.

The extent of the hail damage will determine the type of repair that is needed. In most cases, damaged shingles can be replaced, and small cracks or holes can be patched. However, if the damage is extensive, you may need to replace the entire roof.

If you’re filing an insurance claim for the hail damage, be sure to work closely with your roofing company and insurance provider. Your roofing company can provide you with the necessary documentation and estimates to help you with the claim process. At JACO Contracting, we pride ourselves in carefully working with insurance adjusters to help our customers get the insurance proceeds they are entitled to to help fix hail damage.

JACO Commercial Roofing Job – Buckhead, Atlanta – The Manor House

JACO Commercial Roofing Job – Buckhead, Atlanta – The Manor House

Top Commercial Roofing Job – Buckhead, Atlanta

Check out some awesome visuals from another of our significant commercial roofing jobs. This is a re-roof of a condominium complex known as The Manor House in Buckhead, Atlanta. These kinds of jobs present many challenges.

All of those challenges were deftly handled by JACO Pro Ben Wages and his team. The size of the roof means the job must be handled in sections. You don’t want to do a big tear down and have rains come before the re-roof! This building has a lot of residents, and the crew had to accommodate them while the work was underway.

The location is in a busy area in the city and required special attention to the logistics of getting the crew and material in place when needed. In this case, Ben and his team used a huge scaffold – which allowed for the team and materials to be moved from the ground efficiently. Commercial roofing jobs typically require roofers to carefully address the systems on the roof – such as HVAC.

All handled! JACO soars over Georgia! JACO keeps SAFE all kinds of structures and the people who live and work in them. No job is too big. None too small. Oh, and by the way, the two large condos behind The Manor constitute the Heritage Place condos. Ben and his team re-roofed those also about a year ago! Look how beautiful these three structures are with new JACO-installed roofs. Well done, JACO men!
