In Northern Colorado, weather can be unpredictable and harsh. Your roof can withstand a lot of abuse, but a single, aggressive hail storm can cause irreversible damage, even to a roof that was generally undamaged before. Next time a hail storm rolls over your Loveland or Fort Collins home, be sure to have your roof inspected for damage as soon as possible. If the damage is severe enough, you may face leaks and other issues. You could opt to inspect your roof yourself, but there’s no need for you to climb all the way up there. A Schroeder Roofing technician can come by, inspect your roof, and give you an estimate, all for free!
If you want to do a preliminary inspection of your roof without having to get all the way up there, you can check for certain things on the ground level, too. If you have asphalt shingles, you can check for mineral granules collecting at the ends of your downspouts. These granules serve as the protective layer for the shingle, so an accumulation of it on the ground level might indicate vulnerable shingles. You can also check vehicles or other metal equipment that lives outside such as your air conditioner’s outdoor unit for indications of hail damage.
Don’t let hail damage sit unrepaired. Latent hail damage, that is damage likely to cause issues with roof function in the future but not immediately, should be treated just as seriously as severe damage, such as when shingles are punctured, fractured, or torn. Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, so be sure not to neglect it. Contact Schroeder Roofing in Loveland today for your free roof repair or replacement estimate.
