Hail storms can cause millions of dollars in damage to homes and roofs. It is quite difficult to anticipate them and, once nature unleashes itself in this way, there is little you can do to protect your home. However, you can be proactive by doing everything you can in advance to make sure that your roof will last and not be badly damaged by the impact with the hail stones.
If you live in an area hit by the hail season, you should opt for an impact resistant roof. Such a roof is made from class 4 impact-resistant shingles (these have been lab tested by manufacturers and proved to be the most resistant in hail conditions).
However, having a resistant roof is not a guarantee that you will be safe through the hail season. You must also inspect and maintain your roof regularly, to make sure that there is no damage or vulnerability that may be aggravated by the next hail storms.
Besides, you should schedule a professional Parker roofing company inspection of your roof, after each hail storm. That`s because hail damage is not always obvious. Besides, hail stones must not be big to cause problems.
If your roof has been damaged, it must be repaired quickly, to protect your investment and make sure that the damage will not get worse before you realize.
