Questions About Architecural Shingles?

A Bettr Roof For Less

An asphalt shingle roofing inspection is a thorough evaluation of the condition of your roof's asphalt shingles, underlayment, flashing, gutters, and ventilation systems. This inspection aims to identify any damage or potential issues to ensure the roof's structural integrity and longevity.  Inspections like this are particularly important after any storm or weather event, if your roof has been leaking or suffered visible damage, or if you're involved with a real estate transaction and you'd like a more detailed report on the roof than what most home inspectors will provide.

Genesee County experiences a wide range of weather conditions throughout the year, such as heavy snowfall, strong winds, rain, hail, and intense sunlight. These conditions can cause damage to your roof over time. Regular inspections help identify any problems early on, ensuring the durability and longevity of your roof.

Hail can cause significant damage to a roof, especially if the roofing material is asphalt shingles. The damage occurs due to the impact of hailstones on the roof's surface, and the severity depends on the size, density, and velocity of the hailstones, as well as the age and condition of the roof.

Here's how hail can damage a roof:

  1. Shingle bruising: When hailstones strike the surface of asphalt shingles, they can create dents or bruises. These bruises may not be immediately visible but can cause the underlying layers of the shingle to become damaged, weakening the shingle's structure and reducing its lifespan.

  2. Granule loss: Asphalt shingles are coated with granules that protect the shingle from the sun's UV rays and provide water-shedding capabilities. Hailstones can dislodge these granules, exposing the asphalt layer beneath. This exposure can lead to accelerated aging of the shingle and increase the risk of leaks.

  3. Cracks or punctures: Large or high-velocity hailstones can cause cracks or even puncture shingles, compromising the waterproofing capabilities of the roof and increasing the risk of leaks.

  4. Damage to flashing and vents: Hail can also dent or damage the metal flashing, vents, and other roof components, leading to water infiltration and reduced roof performance.

Hail damage can be difficult to detect, especially from the ground level. If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by hail, schedule an inspection with A Better Roof For Less to inspect your roof to assess the damage and recommend appropriate repairs.  We can provide necessary documentation to your insurance company as well.

It is recommended to have a roofing inspection completed at least once every two years, or definitely after any significant weather event, such as a hailstorm or very strong wind. However, if your roof is older (like 15-25 years old) or you suspect any issues such as leaks or visible damage, it's best to schedule a roofing inspection sooner than later.

Some common issues found during roofing inspections include:

  • Damaged, curled, or missing shingles
  • Granule loss on shingles
  • Damaged, missing, or rusted flashing
  • Mold or mildew growth within your attic
  • Poor ventilation or insulation (leading to moisture, mold, mildew)
  • Blocked or damaged gutters
  • Water leaks or stains on the interior which would indicate condensation or leaks

While you can perform a basic visual inspection of your roof, it is best to hire a professional roofing contractor like A Better Roof For Less to perform a thorough inspection. As professionals we have the necessary tools, experience, and training to identify and address any issues accurately.

If your roof fails the inspection, A Better Roof For Less will provide recommendations for repairs or replacement, depending on the extent of the damage. It's essential to address any issues promptly to prevent further damage to your home and protect its structural integrity.
