Professional Roof Restoration Services for Wind & Hail Damage in Oklahoma City & Stillwater.
Wind and hail can cause more damage than you think—in some cases, the damage doesn’t become apparent until much later. Even a hailstorm that only lasts a few minutes can cause significant problems.
At Lifestyle Home Improvement Roofing and Construction, which serves Oklahoma City & Stillwater we have experience identifying and repairing damage to a home’s exterior from the elements. Even subtle signs don’t escape us; we know the difference between damage that needs attention immediately and regular wear and tear.
Signs of Severe Hail Damage
High winds combined with large hail can impact your home, vehicles and property. If a major storm has left dents in your vehicles and debris throughout your yard, chances are your roof was affected as well. If you have an asphalt shingle roof, you could see signs such as:
- Black indentations in your roof
- Large amounts of granule loss (the sand-like protective coating on asphalt shingles)
- Random areas of damage
- Dents on metal gutters, flashing & vents
If your community has seen hail, it’s time to get your home assessed for potential roof restoration to prevent problems later.
About Wind Damage
While most asphalt roofs are rated to withstand winds up to 90 mph, damage can take place at much lower wind speeds. Winds can pull at the corners and edges of your roof and cause shingles to break or be torn off, leading to exposed areas.
In some cases, high winds actually lift the shingles, compromising the seal and eventually leading to leaks. Of course, high winds can also cause debris to fall on the roof surface, which can majorly impact your roof.
