P.A.I. Restoration Hurricane & Storm Damage
Most storms pass while we’re watching out the windows or not watching at all. We never see what’s happening on our roof. We shelter comfortably knowing our homes will keep us safe. When a storm passes, if nothing is visibly amiss, we think everything is OK. Storm damage can go unnoticed until it’s too late! Hail falls at speeds up to 200 miles per hour from as high as 30,000 feet, impacting your shingles and leaving bruises and fractures allowing water to penetrate. These “bruises” can only be detected from actually feeling for the bruise or “softness” similar to a coffee filter. You cant see this from the ground. Sometimes hail damage takes years to show up and by then you have missed the insurance deadlines and when you start to see stains in the ceilings and realize there’s a problem, it’s too late and you’ll have to pay for the interior and the roof out of your own pocket.
WIND damage can be similar, usually when we think of wind damage we think about missing shingles. This is not always the case. Wind can break the seal on a shingle, pull it through the nail, crease it or even tear it and the lay it back down, appearing that nothings even wrong. Debris gets on the tar strip that was once the seal, and they will never seal the same. Then the next storm comes and again we’re watching out the windows while water sneaks into the roof.
Your insurance company will gladly help replace your roof but we have to catch it and let them know in time.
