What to do after hail storm in East Stroudsburg PA Area

When people think of summer storms, here in the East Stroudsburg area, they tend to think about heavy rainfall and thunder. While that is true, our area does periodically experience heavy thunderstorms, the type of severe storm that we will be talking about today is more closely associated with roof storm damages — and of course that type of storm is a hail storm. 

Hail is similar to a rain storms and blizzards in the sense that it is a form of precipitation. The key difference, however, is that when hail is formed, the precipitation is quickly frozen before it falls to the ground. 

Hail commonly occurs when the updraft of a thunderstorm is incredibly strong, moving the water upwards until it reaches the freezing point. Once the moisture freezes, it becomes too dense for the updraft to support and begins falling to the ground — damaging cars, trees, and homes as it falls. 

As a residential roofer in the East Stroudsburg area, here at  Nice Shingles Roofing & Exteriors, we get plenty of calls during the spring, summer, and fall months about hail damages. In an effort to educate you on how to determine if your roof has been damaged by hail, we have made a list of some of the most common signs of damage. 

Check Out Home’s Surroundings

If there has been a hail storm in your area, you should be able to determine how damaging the storm was by simply checking out your surroundings. If the storm was unusually intense, you might notice larger hail stones on the ground. If you get home once the hail has melted, look for signs of trauma to trees and your roof. A good indicator of how strong a storm was is to look and see how many leaves and branches were knocked from the trees surrounding your home. 

Pro Tip: A great signifier that your roof might be damaged is if your mailbox was struck with enough force to be dented. 

Look At The Soft Metals On Your Roof

So you have determined that the storm in your area was intense. Once you have done so, it might be time to check out the roof itself. Upon inspecting your roof, it is important to first inspect the soft metal vents and caps on your roof for damages. If dented, it is more than likely that you might need a roof repair or replacement. 

Inspect Your Roofing Shingles

If you have a traditional shingled roof, it is likely that you will be able to notice damages yourself — even before you contact our team of roofing contractors. To spot damages, look for dark spots on the roof roughly the size of the hail that has fallen. Once you find one or more, rub your finder on the spot to determine if the granules have become loose. If they have, it is time to get in touch with a residential roofing company for further inspection and a repair estimate for the damages so that you can proceed with making an insurance claim.
