Your professional will check throughout the roof for damage from rain, wind, hail, and tree limbs. Sometimes the damage is not obvious from the ground, but your professional will get up onto the roof and check all of the ridges, gables, valleys, soffits, and flashing. When your building experiences high winds or hail, shingles can lift completely off of the roof or curl up and out. Both situations will leave the roof deck or underlayment exposed to further weather and further damage.
Wind, debris, and hail can also damage the siding of the structure. Depending on the material of the siding, the damage can be minor or require a complete replacement. Your professional will check for cracks, breaks, and holes in the vinyl siding and dings and dents in aluminum siding. Both types siding will need close inspection by your professional to ascertain the extent of the damage. If your building is clad in stucco, this type of weather can cause serious damage, including large holes made by flying debris. With a brick building, the damage may not be easily recognized unless you call on a Homestar Group professional. He will inspect the brick for damage and also the gutters, trim, window casings, and soffit vents for damage. Getting a full inspection will allow the building’s owner to be assured that all damage has been assessed and repaired.
