Hail on a roof

As we approach another storm season in South Florida, homeowners must understand the potential consequences of hail damage on their roofs. At Native Roofing, we take pride in our commitment to excellence and dedication to helping homeowners navigate the aftermath of severe weather.

With our extensive training and expertise, we’re equipped to help identify storm damage and assist with insurance claims, ensuring that our clients receive the compensation they deserve.

When hail strikes a roof, its effects can be both immediate and long-lasting. Here’s how hail damage can impact your roof:

  • Shingle Damage: Hailstones can cause cracks, dents, and punctures in roofing shingles, compromising the roof’s integrity and leaving it vulnerable to water infiltration and leaks. While hurricanes dominate the headlines, severe thunderstorms can bring significant impacts, including hail damage.
  • Granule Loss: Hailstones can dislodge the protective granules on asphalt shingles, accelerating their aging process and reducing their lifespan. In 2023, South Florida experienced 58 damaging wind and/or large hail events.
  • Weakened Seals: The impact of hail can loosen the adhesive seals between shingles, leading to displacement and exposing vulnerable areas of the roof to the elements. With Native Roofing’s prompt and professional repairs, we can mitigate this risk and ensure your roof remains secure.
  • Gutter and Downspout Damage: Hail can also damage gutters and downspouts, obstructing proper water drainage and potentially causing water damage to the roof and the home’s foundation. Our team is experienced in addressing these issues and can recommend some reputable gutter companies in your area.
  • Hidden Damage: Not all hail damage is immediately visible, which is why a thorough inspection by Native Roofing is essential. Our trained technicians can identify hidden structural damage and address it before it leads to more serious issues down the line.

At Native Roofing, we understand the importance of protecting your home and your investment. As South Florida braces for another storm season, trust us to provide the expertise and support you need to safeguard your roof against hail damage.

Don’t wait until it’s too late—schedule your professional roofing inspection today. Hail damage is no match for our team! We’ll get your roof back in peak condition in no time.
