Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have storm damage to my roof from a recent hail or wind storm?

Unfortunately, hail damage to your roof shingles is not visible from the ground. Wind damage to your shingles may or may not be visible from the ground. It can be difficult to detect hail or wind damage to your roof if you are not a trained professional.

Does All Pro Contracting Services offer a free roof inspection for possible storm damage?

Yes, we have highly qualified professionals that will perform a free, no obligation roof and exterior inspection. If storm damage is found, we can meet with your insurance adjuster and work with your insurance company to ensure all damages are covered by your carrier.

What are some of the materials on the exterior of my home that may show evidence of hail damage if I recently had a hail storm in my neighborhood?

Hail damage (dents, abrasions, or tears) may be found on downspouts, window screens, screen enclosure, etc. However, depending on the direction of the hail, it is common for homeowners to sustain hail damage to their roof and have no evidence of hail damage to the exterior of their home. That's why it is always recommended to have a trained professional inspect your roof for possible storm damage.

What size hail does it usually take to cause damage to roof shingles?

There are several factors that go into the results of hail damage. The main factors are direction, speed, and size of the hail stones; as well as the age and type of shingles on the roof. Engineers typically state that hail must be 1" in diameter or larger to damage a shingle. However, smaller hail stones have been documented to cause damage to older shingles.

What problems can arise from hail damage that goes undetected?

Hail damage can remove granules, puncture, and damage the matte of the shingle. Hail damage will prematurely age your roof and may cause roof leaks that will potentially damage the interior of your home. Hail damage on a roof may not cause a roof to leak immediately, but over months or years; you may develop premature leaks that would not have happened if you had not suffered hail damage.

Will my insurance premium increase if I file a roof claim?

We can't speak for all insurance companies, but typically homeowners insurance works differently than automobile insurance. Usually, homeowner's premiums will NOT increase because the damage to your home was the result of a natural disaster that was beyond your control and no fault of your own.
