Common Damage
Storm Repairs

Hail Damage
Hail damage can be serious and often goes unnoticed until it's too late. Indentations and holes in your roof’s shingles are caused by the minute shards of ice that get caught up in strong winds—even a little bit of hail damage is cause for concern because these cracks grow larger over time, eventually becoming irreparable.

Wind Damage
Often, it is difficult to assess the extent of storm-related damage caused by wind. Residential asphalt shingles are designed so that a strip of tar adhering to each shingle matches up at its corners—during a strong enough gust this bond can break and cause the sheet metal on top to lift off.  A shingle that has been lifted from its base is not, in itself, a sign of damage.

If wind-blown debris attaches to the tar strip during a storm and prevents it from re-sealing, then your shingle will have problems. The easiest way to tell if this has happened is by getting a roof inspection performed

Flying Debris
Debris that flies off a roof during a storm typically takes the form of branches, shingles and other irregular-shaped objects. This kind of debris can cause extensive damage to your home even if it does not fall directly on your house but impacts something else nearby—such as the tree in which it originated from or another structure like an electrical pole.

A roof inspection will reveal whether your roof is still functioning properly or if it needs to be repaired.

After The Storm
If you were in the path of a hail storm or a hurricane in North Carolina, here’s what you can expect to happen if you call Raleigh Roofing Services for help with any roof damage:

1)Your Raleigh Roofing Services representative will perform a 10-point inspection and documentation on your roof and surrounding areas of your home.

2) If damage is found, it will be suggested that you file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance company for damage.

3) Once a claim is filed, you will set an appointment for an insurance adjuster to come inspect your roof for the damage.

4) Your Raleigh Roofing Services representative will be at the adjuster’s meeting to make sure all damage found at the previous inspection is pointed out.

5) If the adjuster approves the claim and pays for roof replacement, your adjuster will give you their estimate and first check for your new roof replacement.

6) Your Raleigh Roofing Services representative will go over the estimate with you, discussing your options for replacement products and sign a contract with you.

7) Once the contract is signed with product and color choices and the first check has arrived, we will order product materials. Raleigh Roofing Services will schedule and install your new roof before the 2nd check (the remainder of the claim amount) arrives. You will owe us the remainder of the balance once your new roof is completed. We will submit to you a “Paid In Full Receipt” that you will send to your insurance company and they will release the remainder of the funds to you.

8) When the materials are delivered, one of our professional roofing crews will install your new roof system. This can take 1 day or 4 days, depending on the size of the roof. Your Raleigh Roofing Services representative will be there to answer any questions or concerns.

9) Once the job is done, we will send you and your insurance company a final invoice stating that all work per the insurance estimate was completed.

10) Your insurance company will send you the 2nd check (usually the remainder of the claim amount) within a week or so.

Stay prepared for sudden changes in the forecast with your local experts. We have 25 years of hands-on experience fixing shingles, flashing, caulking, and more.

Avoid giving the adjuster access to your home without a roofing contractor present. If you have a question about your claim, ask it in writing.  We document the storm damage with precision. We’ll give you a clear explanation of what will happen next and how we'll get your claim settled as quickly—and painlessly!-as possible.

Contact us for a roof assessment if you think your home or business may have sustained damage from the storm.

What does hail do to a roof?
Shingles are designed so that the granules block the UV of the sun and protect the asphalt underlayment. As the shingles age the granules fall off over time. As the asphalt is exposed to UV, it dries out and the shingle gets a “potato chip” appearance as the corners start to curl up. A shingle at the extreme end of its life is bubbled in appearance and is brittle to the touch. A 20-year shingle is warranted by the manufacturer to have a useful life, under optimal ventilation conditions, of 20 years. Hail does several things.
  • Accelerates granule loss
  • Accelerates shingle aging
  • Voids manufacturer’s warranties
  • Leads to other associated problems.
Clip art g92518f39f 1920

Do I need to get my roof replaced right away?
The insidious nature of hail damage is that it may pose no immediate threat to the structural integrity of the roof. However, many insurance companies have a “statute of limitations” of how long a hail claim is viable. If you have experienced a loss such as hail damage it is prudent to take care of the problem in a timely manner before it leads to other associated problems.
Clip art g92518f39f 1920

What does a hail hit look like?
A hail hit on a shingle looks like a “bruise” or a dark spot where the granules on the shingle have been knocked off and the asphalt underlayment and sometimes the fiberglass mat is exposed. New hail hits will have a shiny appearance because the asphalt has been freshly exposed and has not had time to weather to a dull color.
Clip art g92518f39f 1920

Why would my insurance company replace my roof?
The purpose of homeowner’s insurance is to protect homeowners against losses in their property’s value due to damage that is beyond their control. If you have hail damage, you have experienced a financial loss in that your original investment of a 20-year roof (for example) has now been reduced to a 5-10 year useful life span. Your insurance company will compensate you for your loss and replace your roof.
Clip art g92518f39f 1920

Why does the estimate read that there are more shingles to replace then there are to remove?
The amount of shingles to remove from your roof is the actual amount of square feet that it takes to shingle your roof. However, when putting on shingles, some shingles have to be cut to fit dimensions, ridges, hips and valleys. The insurance company adds 10% to regular ridge roofs and 15% to hip and ridge roofs to account for the loss of shingles.
Clip art g92518f39f 1920

In my adjustment, my insurance company deducted some money for depreciation, what is that all about?
Different insurance companies call the amount that they hold back different things. Some call it depreciation; other companies figure it in as a dump and removal fee. What it represents is the amount of money the company will hold back until they receive a signed contract from you and a contractor for the work. When they receive a signed contract, you will receive another check for the amount they have held back.
